Love Songs: A Compilation...Old and New (2004)

Details Release Date: Sep 28, 2004; Lead Performance: Phil Collins

Thanks to the Postal Service's electronica version of ''Against All Odds'' (currently enjoying heavy rotation on MTV and a spot on the Wicker Park sound-track), Phil Collins seems ripe for a groovy kind of renaissance. His best-of set, Love Songs: A Compilation, is well-timed, but there's only so much Phil we can take (there are 25 tracks!). While guilty-pleasure gut-wrenchers like ''One More Night'' and ''Separate Lives'' still delight, bland covers of chestnuts such as Leonard Bernstein's ''Somewhere'' come off as su-su-super self-indulgent.
