5.0 out of 5 stars BACK IN THE U.S.A. March 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This a perfect introduction to the Dead or Alive catalogue. Everything is here, from the first hit to the Japan only releases "Hit and Run Lover" and "Isn't it a Pity". Remix of "Lover Come Back" which is very high energy. The only song that is dissappointing is the remix of "Turn Around and Count to 10". This remix ,in my opinion, is very slow compared to the original. This is definitely worth the money. If you want to shell out an extra 20 bucks the 2 disc set of "Evolution" is available as an import. It has many more hits and some extended versions.

If you're a true DOA fan, there is only one option: splurge for the 2-CD UK Import set of EVOLUTION, featuring ALL of the hits plus many of the hard-to-find-on-CD original remixes (alas, no OFF YER MONG remix of IN TOO DEEP, why?!) - but why stop there when you can also spring for the UK-Import-Only DVD collection of ultra-rare VIDEOS, including the amazing, stunning, and maybe even a bit disturbing 2003 remix video of their biggest hit, YOU SPIN ME ROUND, featuring Pete Burns Circa 2003 pushing the envelope for plastic-surgery-as-art?! One look and you'll wonder if his current muse is Dave LaChapelle's AMANDA LAPORE?! He used to be a gothic/pop "freak" -now he's more like a cybo-tron drag queen robot - WOW! The sad thing is, Pete Burns CAN sing, CAN write hooks, and CAN put on a great stage show persona - too bad no major label in America will ever see fit to put out some NEW music by DOA, instead of Sony endlessly re-hashing, re-mixing, and re-releasing the same ol' batch of 80s hits over and over, ad nauseum. Pete and Co. really deserve better. Check out Pete's collaboration with PSB, "JACK & JILL PARTY," for electro-cheeky proof positive that DOA could still be a chart contender. Until then, buy this CD and the DVD - but wait, you'l need to get a Cyber-Home-300 region FREE DVD player first...but I digress.

I was a big fan of DOA between Sophisticated and Nude. They not only opened me up to a whole world of "new wave" but they were also the first concert I went to as a teenager. I collected their 12" mixes and singles and such and was quite impressed with the production...the retooling of some singles (Something in my house and Hooked on love) and the 12" mixes were quite better than some at the time. Stock, Aiken and Waterman were great producers and really knew how to hone in on a sound. They were also the producers behind Bananarama...and later Rick Astley and Cathy Dennis. The first four albums were great...top notch stuff. The latest of it..is well...gay dance music and not really good. I pretty much moved on with my musical tastes in the early 90's and didn't follow DOA that much, as what I heard was either awful, over produced, dance music or a new remixed version of You Spin Me...(I think there are at least 20 mixes of that song). I mean I'd see something new and give it a listen, but was generally disappointed. So here we are about 20 years later (a very long time considering that most bands like this one from the 80's are gone) and you have to give it to Pete for keeping DOA alive all these years...though I think there'd be no stopping him.
And then we have this offering in two versions. One being this... straight forward hits comp and the other is a double import disk, which while comes in a nice package is really more of the same with different versions and few other "hits" not included on the former. Most of the singles are here..save Nukleopatra and Baby don't say goodbye (where's son of a gun?)...which are only ok, so I am not disappointed that they are not included (they are on the import).

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead or Alive is definitely ALIVE!!! June 27, 2003
By Marc
Format:Audio CD
What can I say??? It's Dead or Alive, and they are quite possibly the best band, ever - even better live!!! Most people probably only know them from "You Spin Me 'Round" and the record company seems to exploit that one song, but they are so much more (although the new 2003 version is the best of the numerous remixes over the years, and the original still sends people scurrying to the dance floor whenever it is played.) I think they really came into their own when they took over the production duties of their material. "Come Home (With Me Baby)" is here, as well as "Sex Drive" from the fabulous "Nukleopatra" album - but not the title track (it's on the 2-CD version). "Hit And Run Lover" should have been a massive hit. And in addition to the updated "YSMR", the 2003 version (although it was on 2000's "Fragile") of "Lover Come Back" could be big, too. Buy the CD, or better yet, buy the 2-CD version. Either way, you will want to get up and dance. Dead or Alive is definitely alive, and this greatest hits reprospective shows how far they've come, and Pete & Steve still have more great things in the works!!! One listen to this well-deserved, long-overdue "greatest hits" package shows why DOA have been HUGE in Japan for years. Now hopefully the rest of the world will rediscover Dead or Alive.

4.0 out of 5 stars WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS LIPS? February 26, 2005
By Wes
Format:Audio CD
When you open up the case and look at Pete's lips...well, you cannot help but get the obvious sexual inference. I can't help but wonder though if it's a digital illustration, makeup, or did he really go for the Angelina Jolie Super Deluxe collagen special? You really have to see it to believe it. As far as the music, most of the selections are well chosen, but it's missing a few key tracks and some of the remixes are a bit superflous, but overall a good collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pete Burns the real life Marilyn Manson
Burns looks more frightening every time a new album cover comes out. SCARY! But anyhow Dead or Alive have one good song and we all know what one that is.

First off, if you can get your hands on the UK 2 disc version of Evolution, you should. It is far superior to this collection. This version is for the casual DOA fan. Read more
