Editorial Reviews

The lovable twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, have been growing up since their playful Brother for Sale. So it's no surprise that this Greatest Hits collection's opening frame of tunes (from Ballet Party) features them discussing the history of the sleepover party and their desire to travel to see the New York City Ballet. They're reaching adolescence, with richer voices and more precise articulation, and this becomes all the more clear when they sing Brother's title track in very young, cutesy voices. The twins have obviously captured more children's imagination since their debut and so this collection's emphasis is understandably on their later work. It's this work that makes this set best for kids 10 and older, especially the closing 4 songs--all of which relate to fashion, junior high school, and the mall. Many parents are pining for stuff this innocent for their near-adolescent kids and this collection is golden for that set. For parents of younger kids interested in the dynamic duo, start with the funny Brother for Sale or I Am the Cute One. --Andrew Bartlett

In this "Greatest Hits" album, we rediscover some of the earlier hits of these young twins. From the opening track, "Your Heartless Void", we hear a very early four track demo recorded before the girls were picked up by a major label. A truly telling song, we hear honest sincerity as Mary-Kate croons about the emptiness of modern romance and the delicate lines we all must walk to avoid a muddled, worthless existence. With Ashley-Olsen's gentle, yet telling classical guitar wafting in the background, we hear a sound eerily reminiscent of the early minimalist work of Lou Reed.
On the next two songs, "Stabbing and Punching" and "Toothless Rookie," we are treated to the twins brief foray into the punk scene. Despite the repetitious brutal power chords and simplistic bridge-solos, the lyrics carry these songs onto a level formerly reserved only for the likes of The Ramones or even The Clash. "Stabbing" particularly stands out, with it's powerful ending of Mary-Kate screaming, "You can rip out my heart, but you'll never take my soul you filthy [expletive]!" It just doesn't get more meaningful than that, folks.
The next five tracks should be skipped as they are the weakest of the album. Mostly all of them are about riding ponies or how cute ponies are or where is a good place to watch ponies. Contextually these tracks are quite funny as they seem to be mocking the music of popular children's recording artists, but, unfortunately, they do seem to drone on a bit. We got the joke, okay?
The last three songs on the disc are certainly what made the girls the musical powerhouse they are today, as the production levels were greatly improved upon with the addition of Nigel Goodrich at the helms of these pop-classics.

This CD is a must have for any Mary-Kate and Ashley fan, especially if you have seen their party videos because you will know what all the songs are about. I loved the last four tracks the most because they are about fashion which is much for more my age. But, I love the other tracks too and I am definatly going to buy Mary-Kate and Ashley's Greatest Hits II.

5.0 out of 5 stars WAY TO GO April 8, 2000
Format:Audio CD
For the person who wrote the last review, have you even heard this music? It is very catchy. I love "fashion jr high" and all the other songs on this album. It sounds like you are just one of those people who does not like the twins so you try to stop people from buying their stuff. This is a GREAT album and CD. buy it NOW!
