Atlantic Starr's Ultimate Collection lives up to its name, gathering hits that span the group's two-decade existence. From early singles such as "Stand Up," "When Love Calls," and "Touch a Four Leaf Clover" to their later hits like "Always," "My First Love," and "Masterpiece." With 18 tracks covering their years on A&M, Warner, and Reprise, this album is indeed the ultimate collection of Atlantic Starr's career highlights. ~ Heather Phares
