Thorough Compilation for an Artist who Could Barely Fill One
on October 19, 2004
Where Billy Idol's place in rock history will fall is hard to say, but he did have a few memorable songs from the late '80's to the early '90's. This cd basically contains every song from Idol that you would like to own. Flesh for Fantasy, White Wedding, Rebel Yell, Dancing With Myself, Mony Mony and Hot in the City represent all of the classic Idol tracks. However, to this day I still believe the best track that Billy ever laid down was Eyes Without a Face. The song works on so many levels and is such a distinct break from his normal pop formula that it envelopes the listener. Structured with an amazing bass line, a heavy guitar break and those computerized claps this song simply blows away anything else he ever produced. Anyway, this is a great way to catch up on your vital Idol and a fine addition to any rock collection. Recommended.
