Many Donny Osmond collections have appeared over the years, but none have combined his early and latter-day hits with the biggest Osmonds singles and his duets with Marie. This Definitive Collection, appearing in the wake of Donny's triumphant appearance on Dancing with the Stars, is the first to do exactly that, and while it has a couple of curious selections -- "Soldier of Love" is represented by the U.K. 12" mix, "Crazy Horses" is a solo version, not the Osmonds -- it is easily the best and most comprehensive Donny Osmond retrospective ever assembled. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
