This CD is a great collection of Marvin Gaye hits. The songs takes you on a melodious journey and there are songs of many moods, thus showing off his versatility in singing. "What's Going On" and "Let's Get It On" are some of my favourite songs by him. The bonus tracks are great too, they give this compilation more depth. Some of the bonus tracks aren't as popular as the other songs but hold their own in the quality department. This CD had set out to give the listener a compilation of Marvin's Number 1 hits and it did just that. Most of the songs you hear on this disc are pretty essential for beginners. Marvin eases the soul with his smooth voice and powerful vocals, anyone interested in soul music should definitely give Marvin a listen and this CD is possibly the best place to start. One major song from his career that is missing on this disc though is “Ain't No Mountain High Enough”, that song was a huge hit and continues to be played on present day radio. The fact that song was missing was kind of a disappointment, but I guess they were focusing on his solo career more than his duets he did. Because of the amount of content and quality on this disc I give it a 4.5/5. Anyone interested in Marvin Gaye's music should check this out as it will surely take you in a time machine back to a simpler time when everyone made music from the soul.
