As Donny Osmond moved more and more into territory occupied by MOR singers Michael Ball and Michael Bublé, he found himself, an adult contemporary singer, competing even with the likes of Westlife. He didn't disown his past as a child star, opening the album with a re-recording of his most famous hit, "Puppy Love," and From Donny…With Love also included tracks from his childhood in the early '70s with songs like "When I Fall in Love" and "The Twelfth of Never." Both of these are so laid-back, unlike his earlier versions: the former is even slower than the Nat King Cole original. There are quite faithful, if unemotional versions of "How Long," "How Deep Is Your Love," "Let's Stay Together," "Right Here Waiting," "This Guys in Love with You," and "If," and Osmond returned to his love of musical theater with the songs "This Is the Moment" from Jeckyl & Hyde, "Seasons of Love" from Rent, and "Luck Be a Lady" from Guys & Dolls. The album ended with the only new track, "Never Gonna Say Goodbye," a song recorded live at Edinburgh Castle.
