5.0 out of 5 stars Get it while you can! September 26, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a serious OMD fan for nearly 15 years now, and their music never tires, bores or gets old to me. OMD comes from a time in music when it was worthwhile for the fan to purchase singles. OMD was notorious for leaving excellent songs off their albums, so I was never disappointed. I was always delighted to discover a new beautiful piece of OMD hiding, playing hard to get. I've collected OMD flip sides (through my own research and through well-intentioned friends) on square shaped records, 45's and 33's, tapes and 3 inch CDs! Trying to take those songs for a car ride always presented a challenge and never sounded as good.
Thanks to all who have listened to the fans' requests for producing this collection because now I have some of my favorite songs in one place, in one well-made collection that can go with me anywhere! Songs like "4-Neu", "Sacred Heart" and "Navigation" exemplify OMD's ability to make sweet, beautiful and almost surreal music. These songs are a good example of why I've loved OMD for this long and will continue to do so until my dying day. "Garden City", "The Avenue", "Firegun", "This Town", "Gravity Never Failed", "Burning" and all the rest... these are all fantastic songs that poor deprived OMD fans have got to hear!! If you love what OMD does for music, then you will love this album. It is a MUST BUY for anyone who calls himself an OMD fan.

In my humble opinion, there isn't enough OMD in this world, and at the same time, their B-sides are so much harder to get nowadays compared to when I built up most of my collection. Really now... how many fans can say they've seen and own "Crush -- the Movie", an OMD documentary? I only have it because I was at the right place at the right time.
The record companies need to dust off their copies of OMD songs and videos and share with the rest of us already, make it more easily accessible! ...
Anyway, I love this collection. I recommend it. Go for it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Burning May 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The liner notes state that this compilation was due, in part, to fans requesting a b-sides compilation and choosing what b-sides were to be selected. Excellent move! Now, if only more bands and record companies would cater to the buying public! OMD have always been on of my favorite new wave/electronic bands that should have amounted to much more than they have. Few synth bands were as original, creative and yet catchy as OMD were. This b-sides compilation showcases the band's strengths--experimentation, great melodies and beautiful synth sounds. It also shows some of their weaknesses like creating lifeless and mundane tracks such as "(The Angels Keep Turning) The Wheels Of The Universe)" and "Sugar Tax". But these are few. Mostly, "Navigation" is littered with great thrown away tracks like "Almost", a cover of the Velvet Underground's "Waiting For The Man", "Annex", "Sacred Heart", "Her Body In My Soul", "Garden City", "This Town" and "Burning". The only comparison I can think of to "Navigation" is the Pet Shop Boys' two disc b-side compilation "Alternative". Perhaps "Navigation" could have been two discs, and a complete collection of b-sides? All of these things aside, I wish music would go back to what is on this disc. The good old days. For OMD fans, this is a nice bookend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brand New Old OMD Music December 17, 2003
By Jack
Format:Audio CD
I have been an avid fan of Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark for 20+ years, and thought I had heard everything. Since there is so many rare releases on the recording, when I heard this CD for the first time, it was like listening to a brand new OMD cd from the early 80's. Fantastic!! I especially like Concrete Hands and Navigation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique, Mesmerizing, Essential June 8, 2008
By Lee
Format:Audio CD
"Navigation" is an odd, obscure little C.D. with a cover that looks like a Trapper Keeper and 73 minutes of extremely mesmerizing abstract atmospheric electronic music with sparse vocals. In the first two weeks I had it it only left my C.D. player to go in my portable C.D. player or to my friends' house (so I could play it for them...except their C.D. player was broken). For a while I had to practically force myself to turn it off to watch my shows or let my family sleep.

It consists of B-sides from various formats of the singles of "Messages," "Red Frame, White Light," "Enola Gay," "Souvenir," "Joan of Arc," "Maid of Orleans," "Genetic Engineering," "Telegraph," "Tesla Girls," "So in Love," "La Femme Accident," "Forever Live and Die," "Dreaming," "Sailing on the Seven Seas," and "Then You Turn Away," two different B-sides from "Locomotion," a one-sided 7" bonus record from the original limited edition version of "Junk Culture," and the original version of "Almost" recorded at Henry's Studio in Liverpool, which had never been released in any form prior to "Navigation," and also isn't one of the bonus tracks on the expanded edition of the self-titled album. It's arranged partly chronologically, but the track sequence seems to have been adjusted to allow it to flow like an album, which it does well. It's actually hard to believe this wasn't conceived as an album, since it doesn't sound at all like a collection, much less one spanning over a decade. I'd call it O.M.D.'s second or third best album.

It contains an alternate recording of "Almost" and an alternate mix of "The Romance of the Telescope," which breathe new life into those songs (even though these were actually recorded before the versions released on the albums).
