This collection contains tracks from Nomi's debut and the follow-up, Simple Man. As such, the material is an interesting blend of catchy synth-pop, like Just One Look and Falling In Love Again (sung partly in German) and serious choral pieces like Death and From Beyond.

Rubberband Lazer, an addictive pop song with weird country infusions and brilliant bursts of synth, and the theatrical Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead with its singalong chorus are my favourites here. It's a pity one of his most magnificent numbers, Saint Saens' famous aria Samson And Delilah, has not been included.

Apart from that glaring omission, his most famous tracks like Cold Song - an impressive operatic number and Total Eclipse, a magical marriage of rock and classical from the first album, plus the abovementioned highlights from the second album are all here. Klaus Nomi was part of the late 70s/early 80s synth explosion, but his operatic angle was unique. His music remains highly original and inspiring.
