Five star is a familygroup from England. Two brothers and three sisters who became popstars and had some great successes in the eighties, especially in England. All these songs were hits in England and a lot of them also in the Netherlands, where I come from; they were quite popular. Hits like All fall down, Let me be the one, Find the time, Rain or shine and The slightest touch are catchy tunes, which were played a lot in the clubs in '85/ '86 and '87. Five star still makes records (Eclipse 2001) and the family lives in the States since 1990. I am a fan since day one and will always stay a fan. Especially the leadsinger Denise has a superb voice. This album represents the best of their work, but do not forget to check their latest album, which is still of the same high quality.

If you love the 80's like I do, this is a must! Has the 80's stamped all over it...and the music is smooth and foot stomping too.
Sounds a lot like the Jackson 5 and En Vogue....but quite a few 80's bands sound the same anywayz. This band is not very well known in the US, and it is hard to find MP3 downloads for the tracks available here. But this greatest hits complilation is a good buy for all 'System Addict' fans. Happy groovin!

I cant believe I found this cd, its awesome.

It has all the best 5* songs and it brings back the great dance beat.

They have a likeness to The Jacksons and DeBarge and yet still they hold their own.

All the songs a great and they still sound great today.

There were many artists I loved in the 80s: Run DMC, Madonna, Whitney, Eric B.& Rakim, Jody Watley, New Edition, Prince, LL Cool J., Michael, Janet, and a 5 member R&B/Pop group of brothers and sisters that hailed from England named Five Star.

I loved these guys back in the day. Deniece, Doris, Lorraine, Stedman and Delroy could dance, sing, and had some of the catchiest R&B/Pop songs around. Sure some of the music was bubblegum, but it always catchy. The first video I ever saw of their's was "Crazy," (for some reason the song was left off of this collection!)
with them singing and having fun in an amusement park. From that point on, I was a fan. Their first CD, "Luxury of Life" got major spins in my house. My cousins and I learned the choreography from the "All Fall Down" video and would dance to it every time the video aired on BET. I even remember calling my local radio station and requesting "Love Take Over" when I was about 8 or 9 years old!

I was trying to find something for years on CD from Five Star but was unsuccessful. I received an Amazon gift card from a co-worker this past X-Mas. I was scrolling through New Edition CDs on the site and saw this Five Star CD advertised on that page. I almost flipped out of my chair! I quickly ordered the CD and have been playing it to death ever since! "Can't Wait Another Minute," "Strong As Steel," "When Ever You're Ready," and my personal favorite, "Let Me Be the One," which still sounds good and can go up against ANYTHING on the radio today and win!

I wonder what the group is up to nowdays? Deniece could sing her tail off and still should be recording. I wish the rest of the group well in their endeavors. If the Spice Girls and New Kids on the Block can reunite, then Five Star should do so. I might even travel across the pond to see a show!

I have loved this group since the 80s. I am American, and I know although they are beloved in England, we also loved them here in the States as well. I know ALL the songs on this greatest hits cd. I once had the casette tapes, but due to moving and items being shuffled around over the years... they were lost. Which is the reason why I am re-purchasing. I am actually commenting before my shipment arrives because I already know the songs, just haven't heard them in a while and looking forward to listening to them and re-living my teenage memories! I just love Denise and she has the best voice! If you are thinking of purchasing, I am here to say in advance you won't be disappointed! :)

I gave these guys 3 stars, even though they're more of a 5 star..., and that's more than just commenting on their name-sake's. But, this is why I did so...; first off 5 star was an excellent pop group, no doubt following in the shadows of 'the jacksons' and 'debarge' and so on. The problem is not so much their quality of singing and music, I think it's more ---- the production department of the compilation of this CD. Whomever was responsible for putting this CD together did, I think in my estimation a bad job. Then again, maybe that was all they had to work with. But, don't get me wrong, 5-star is excellent..., it's just that at times listening to the whole CD through it's entirety can after a while get a bit annoying. Maybe it's just too much of a central theme-concept of up-tempo tracks or not enough, or a good mixture of sweet ballads in between. I don't know...! I'm starting to feel like a Simon Cowell or a Randy Jackson judge on American Idol critiquing this project.
