Their Most Beautiful Ballads is a compilation album of recordings by Boney M. released by MCI/BMG in late 2000.

While Boney M. may be a group that is best known for their many chart topping disco hits such as "Daddy Cool", "Ma Baker" and "Rasputin", most of their original studio albums also included a number of ballads, tracks like "El Lute", "I'm Born Again", "Still I'm Sad", "Consuela Biaz" and "The Carnival Is Over" were in fact also successful single releases. Their Most Beautiful Ballads is the first compilation to gather these and it is not only digitally remastered, but most of the songs included have also been given a light contemporary remix treatment by original producer Frank Farian.
