I LIKE YELLO MORE THAN MOST BUT I JUST COULD NOT GET INTO THE "RE-MIXES" I HEAR ON THIS. I KNOW WE'RE TALKING MORE MONEY HERE, BUT BUY "FLAG","STELLA" &"YOU GOTTA SAY YES" INSTEAD. THOSE ARE CLASSIC PIECES OF ORIGINAL MUSIC THAT SHOULD NOT BE MESSED WITH. RE-MIXES ARE FOR HARD-CORE FANS ONLY. "BEST OFS" SHOULD PROVIDE NEW FANS WITH A PROPER INTRO TO THE GROUP, AND THIS DOES NOT. THAT SAID, I CANNOT GIVE LESS THAN 3 STARS TO A GROUP THIS TALENTED. "FLAG" IS THE ONE TO BUY.

I am a Yello fan through and through. I am such a fan that I am having to re-buy some of their earlier albums on CD because I only have them on cassette(they didn't have CDs when I first got into them). So, that being said, here are my thoughts on this album. This is a "best of" with most of the tracks being slightly remixed. I can think of several tracks that are much better than most of the ones that were selected, especially from their "Claro Que Si" and "You Gotta Say Yes To Another Excess" albums. The remixes are not as good as the originals either. I was pretty disappointed with this album. I would suggest you just skip this and get the rest of their albums instead. You will appreciate them a lot more.

Yello is one of those duos that everyone knows their music but no one can say who they are. Their song "Oh Yeah" was featured in the 80's classic "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" starring Matthew Broderick, and it was also featured in the not-so-classic "The Secret Of My Success" starring Michael J. Fox. Some of the other tracks here were used in the film "Nuns On The Run" starring Eric Idle of Monty Python fame. This career spanning collection of 16 tracks is a great compilation. Call them what you will, weird, eccentric, bizarre, they still know how to make unique and interesting, and even funny music. Yello doesn't sound like any one else on the market, that's for sure. For those interested in having a great snapshot of Yello this essential collection is perfect. For those wishing to dive deeper into Yello's repertoire, the individual cds are mostly available in America. This is a must have for any rock collector.

Some of the most unique yet catchy songs compiled into one place. If you enjoyed the song near the end of Ferris Beuller's Day Off when the principal is beat to hell and trying to get on the school bus, then you'll probably enjoy many of the songs on this wonderful CD.

I'm giving this CD five stars because the title track, called "Oh Yeah" is irresistible. The song was best used and most remembered in the 1987 Michael J. Fox fim; "The Secret of My Success". It was played in the movie as lovely actress Margaret Whitton is seducing Fox with her sexy feet.

What an incredible selection of music. I initially purchased this CD for "Drive/Driven" only...but was pleasantly surprised at the wide variety of sounds. Excellent choice for anybody's Music Library collection.

There are a few albums out there that are just plain fun to listen to. There are even a couple that are actually good musically. This is one of those musical fun albums. "Essential" uses sixteen tracks to cover a ten-year span of their music from 1981 to 1991. All of this music has a good beat to it, creative lyrics, and numerous sound effects.
I wasn't disappointed with any of the tracks on this album, and although a departure from my normal musical tastes, I find myself playing this disc quite frequently. The album starts off with the now infamous "Oh Yeah" as appeared in a certain movie, but there is more to this group than this one popular song. "The Race" with its upbeat tempo made it into the movie "The Cutting Edge" for the skate routine. "Drive/Driven", "Lost Again", "Of Course I'm Lying", and "Desire" are slower songs that show this duo's writing ability. The quicker "Rubberbandman", "Pinball Cha Cha", "Bostich" and "Jungle Bill" show off more of their humorous side.
If you grew up in the eighties, you will recognize most of these songs that are on this album.

This group should have their own genre. their music is the best thing i have ever heard. If you know nothing about them or you are a sophisticated person with odd tastes for music, you got to check out this group, Yello.
