Always Love You - Best of Whitney Houston Deluxe EditionWhitney HoustonExcellent Japan Bonus Track
Most of the songs I like are on Disc 1. However, I enjoyed listening to this release because there are so many great songs. The Japan bonus track is "All At Once," which is one of my favorite Whitney Houston songs.
Greatest Hits [Japan Deluxe Edition] [SHM-CD]Olivia Newton-JohnHighly recommended!
I noticed that the jewel cases of Japanese CD's are slightly thicker than those used on North American releases. In my opinion, that is a good sign that potentially indicates better quality (since the manufacturer did not skimp on materials). But Japanese-made CD's in general have a reputation for good quality. Regarding this specific release, it includes a booklet with a message from Olivia dated July 2022, which has some pictures, song lyrics, credits, and a relatively long introduction written by a journalist dated March 2022. I personally enjoyed reading the contents of the booklet. There is also a poster addressed to Olivia's Japanese fans with her facsimile signature. The sound quality is great and I enjoyed listening to the songs included on this release. You will not regret this purchase if you are a fan of Olivia Newton John.
Carpenters 40/40 Best Selection [Regular-Priced Edition] [SHM-CD]CarpentersI love this album!
There is one major difference between the Japanese and International (outside Japan) releases of this album. The Japanese release has "Leave Yesterday Behind" which is not on the International release. However, the latter has "Touch Me When We're Dancing" which is not on the Japanese release. I have both version of this album. Although this album has 40 songs, there are several songs that I wish were included on this album. I wrote about those songs on my reviews for the "Horizon" and "A Kind of Hush" albums. Moreover, there are some songs on this album (40/40) that I would have preferred to be excluded to make room for the "missing" songs from "Horizon" and "A Kind of Hush." But that is just my opinion and overall, I love this album! I think that the Carpenters are so good that they could release a greatest hits album with 40 songs and I enjoyed listening to most of them. There are only a few artists who can do that in my opinion.
Horizon [SHM-CD]CarpentersGreat album!
There are two songs in this album that were missing from the 40/40 album (Greatest Hits) that I wish were included. The two songs are "Love Me For What I Am" and "Desperado." I also have the 40/40 album but I also bought this album for those two missing songs. I don't regret buying this album because I like most (if not all) of the songs included here.
A Kind Of Hush [SHM-CD]CarpentersHighly recommended!
I bought this CD to "fill in the gaps" from the 40/40 album (Greatest Hits), which I also bought. 40/40 was missing three songs which I wished was included: 1) There's a Kind of Hush, 2) You, and 3) I Have You. But I don't regret buying this CD because the songs and sound quality are good in my opinion.
Heart [SHM-CD]HeartI double dipped on this album
I already have a Greatest Hits album of Heart. However, I double dipped on this album because of the song "Nobody Home." I love that song. I also like most of the songs on this album.
Heart Of Stone [Limited Low-priced Release]CherGreat Album
I've heard of Cher before but I have never listened to any of her albums prior to buying this album. I love this album and I recommend it to fans of pop rock songs. The sound quality is also great in my opinion.
A Touch Of David Foster [SHM-CD]David FosterLots of Great Songs
David Foster composed and/or produced many great songs. I loved almost all of the songs in this album but I know that there are many more great songs that he composed and/or produced. You will not regret buying this CD but will probably be thirsting for more David Foster after listening to this album.
