Amoeba Review

02/04/2013

Starting with the explosive “L-O-V-E (Love),” this Al Green collection is by no means a set of slow, mushy standards. Rather, it’s a deft exploration of one aspect of Green’s voluminous catalog — his ace love songs, which never wallow or go over the top but celebrate love with an ecstatic grace. “I’m Still in Love With You” makes renewing your commitment to someone feel like the first time cupid strikes with its vibrant beat and horns and Green’s soaring falsetto. “Let’s Get Married” spells out its intention in its title, but its breezy presentation is more about moving on from petty fights and making it work. The collection works because it explores so many facets of relationships, and offers hits like “Let’s Stay Together” and “Here I Am (Come and Take Me)” that everyone knows by heart but also cuts from across Green’s career that are comparable in quality, from the delicate “Livin’ For You” to the swaying “For the Good Times.” It’s elegantly paced and immaculately chosen, making The Love Songs Collection a perfect Valentine’s Day gift as well as a great Al Green sampler to whet the appetite for his greater canon.
