Biography

It was 30 years ago that guitarists Susanna Hoffs and Vicki Peterson and drummer Debbi Peterson formed the Bangles in a Brentwood, California, garage. They did so based on two crucial elements: their common love for rock’s golden age (“Growing up loving the same music has always been the glue for the Bangles,” says Susanna), and the crystalline sound they quite naturally ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The Bangles' transformation from Merseybeat and garage-smart guitar band to near-definitive example of buffed-and-polished corporate popsters is one of the great rock mysteries of the '80s. What was up with that video for "Walk Like an Egyptian," anyway? Greatest Hits puts it all in perspective, tracing the curve from the post-Beatles group sneer of "Hero Takes a Fall" to the deadly earnest Susanna Hoffs showcase of "Eternal Flame." Shortly after that ballad hit No. 1, the group split. Now unfairly remembered as little more than space fillers on turn-of-the-decade airwaves, the Bangles here make a good case for their spirit, their own songwriting gifts, and, of course, those voices. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars With A Bang July 19, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The Bangles made some very good albums, but by and large they were a singles band. Their greatest hits collection culls together their finest songs which are among the catchiest of the 80's. The band were knee deep in the sounds of the 60's and their songs are laced with the bright and sunny sounds of flower power. The album features their number one songs, "Walk Like An Egyptian" and "Eternal Flame" as well as their all time best song, the mesmerizing cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Hazy Shade Of Winter". The Bangles are one of those bands that many people will never admit to liking, but will turn up the volume and sing along when "Manic Monday" comes on the radio.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bangles' greatest burns that eternal flame November 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Me not getting this album until now is like a Gen X-er not seeing Grease until the 1998 reissue. Wait, that was me too. Never mind. Anyway, having had all three of the Bangles albums, the Less Than Zero soundtrack, and both of Susanna Hoffs' studio albums, and me being aware that yeah, there were two new songs on there, I figured why bother, I wasn't missing much.
That changed when I chose it for an instore play during a late shift at work and I was impressed with those new songs. In looking at the album, the songs are in order of release date.
All Over The Place (1984) is under-represented with the two rockers "Hero Takes A Fall" and "Going Down To Liverpool." On the first, Susannah lashes out at an ex-lover, while on the second, giving a nod to their influences, the Beatles, Debbi avers that she's "going down to Liverpool and do nothing all the days of my life"
Then comes five songs from Different Light (1985), the album that broke them wide open. The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" sure beats the old Garfield refrain of hating Mondays, as it incorporates the rush to get to work on time or else not get paid, the Byrdsy "Tambourine Man"-like rhythms of "If She Knew What She Wants", and the wacky dance tune "Walk Like An Egyptian" are so memorable to me. The poppy "Walking Down Your Street" is the single version featuring different vocals in the beginning and deserved a Top 5 rating at least. The haunting guitar-only "Following", sung by bassist Michael Steele proves she is a vocal force to be reckoned with.
With Everything (1988), the Bangles began to write their own material.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT MUSIC, ALWAYS BURNING AN "ETERNAL FLAME"! June 16, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is an absolutely fabulous collection of songs. I am 25 years old, and I am a long time Bangles fan. The first song I ever heard by them was "Walk Like An Egyptian" when I was in the 4th grade and I have been hooked ever since. This album has 14 tracks, and I can put it in and not skip a single track. This music brings back some great memories from the 80's when music was still fun to listen to. All of the great tracks are here, including "Manic Monday", "Walk Like An Egyptian", "Hazy Shade Of Winter", "Eternal Flame", "In Your Room", and "Walking Down Your Street". All of these are my personal favs. This group is probably THE most under-rated girl group of all time, and I am truly excited that they have reunited and have gone back out on tour this year. I still stand amazed at their stunning vocal harmonies, that I don't believe has been matched by any other group ever. They also deserve credit for playing ALL of their own instruments. If you love great music, then you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of this MOST EXCELLENT MUSIC. Let it blast in your car, or "IN YOUR ROOM"!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite '80s band February 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I love this band! I grew up on the Bangles' music during the '80s. This band was so inspiring for all young girls, showing them that women can rock with the guys. My only problem with this cd is that 95% of the songs were sung by Susanna but then again the majority of their greatest hits had Susanna on lead vocals.
Their cover of Simon and Garfunkle's "Hazy Shade of Winter" really showcases the band at its best with the women all harmonizing. The remix version of "I'll Set You Free" is even better than the original version found on "Everything". Another favorite is their cover of the Grassroots "Where Were You When I Needed You?". I love singing along to that song.
Overall, good cd. It covers all of the Bangles' hits. It can't disappoint for any '80s fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Their Greatest Hits not their best songs November 24, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Only 4 stars because this album contains "Eternal Flame", the one Bangles song I really can't stand and the song that, according to reports, tore the band apart. The Bangles did better songs than the ones that became hits and most of them are housed on "All Over the Place", their first full length album. It appears to me that this disc was put together by the record company to showcase Susanna Hoffs and her, at the time, forthcoming solo debut. I love the inclusion of "Hazy Shade of Winter", one of their best featuring 4-part harmonies, but really could have done without "I'll Set You Free", another Hoffs ditty. Better choices abounded, including "James" and "All About You", both great Vicki Peterson-penned songs, "Something to Believe In", Michael Steele's ballad that kicks the snot out of "Eternal Flame", "Watching the Sky", a dark rock song by Vicki, showing off her fantastic vocals and "September Gurls", Michael's great cover of an Alex Chilton classic. If all you remember of the Bangles are their hits and are happy with that, this disc is for you. Interested in hearing more and seeing how truly talented this group was, start first with "All Over the Place", then work your way to "Everything".
