In the Mood: The Love Songs is a two-disc compilation album from the group Alabama. It was released in 2003. The album includes the newly recorded tracks "I'm in the Mood" and "The Living Years" (a cover of Mike + The Mechanics). Don Cook and Alabama produced these new tracks, while the other tracks have various original producers.

Critical reception[edit]

Heather Phares of Allmusic rated the compilation 3 stars out of 5, saying that it "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."[1] Deborah Evans Price of Billboard reviewed "I'm in the Mood" favorably, saying that it "has a slow, sultry groove that showcases lead vocalist Randy Owen's warm, honey-smooth Southern voice."[2]
