AMG have no review but 4 stars for this album. Powerful show The blind Boys Of Alabama made at the House Of Blues. I just love the "Blind Boys of Alabama". They are just incredible. At times when I want to just sit back, close my eyes and let my feelings go, I turn on the "Blind Boys of Alabama", and their music just brings out emotion like few others can. Very very good CD.

Spanning two discs and over two decades' worth of music, Alabama's In the Mood: The Love Songs collects the most romantic moments from the band's body of work, including "Close Enough to Perfect," "Feels So Right," "How Do You Fall in Love," and "The Closer You Get." Indeed, love songs play a fairly significant part in the band's career – many of the tracks included here, such as "Fallin' Again," "Touch Me When We're Dancing," "Lady Down on Love," and "In Pictures," also appear on For the Record, Alabama's collection of chart-topping singles. All of this means In the Mood: The Love Songs is a consistent collection of the band's easygoing, sentimental songs, and while it doesn't replace a more straightforward greatest-hits compilation, it should please the band's fans as well as anyone partial to romantic country.
