I bought this CD because I know many of the songs from my teenage years. Most of the first songs on this CD are well known to me and I like them. I am still learning to appreciate the newer songs which I had not heard before. I have mixed feelings about them.

Classic 80's music. Very nostalgic and refreshing to listen to from time to time. They were one of the best in that era.

Unless you're a huge fan of the band, I'd say skip it. After owning it for several months I have come to the painful conclusion that they really only had 2-3 songs I like enough to listen to repeatedly. Put those 3 songs onto my ipod and now the CD is gathering dust.

Giving credit were credit is due, the positive about this album is that it contains all the tracks of the TEARS ROLL DOWN hits compilation plus adds some missing tracks not on the previous CD from 1992, also adding a hard to find track in "New Star" which is also very good. It contains one of thier very first hits (in the U.K.) in "The Way You Are". And on top of that, it contains the U.S. remix version of "Mother's Talk", instead of the original less appealing one. It truly (seems like) it is the total package.
But don't be fooled. A lot hits packages try to sneak in some new mixes or live versions of big songs/important album tracks. And the creators of this CD do it here too. The track in question is "I Believe" a "soulful re-recording", what the hell?? We don't need this! Perhaps the very best song from thier entire catalogue, one of the best songs of all time in it's own right, is improperly represented here and I am pretty upset.
On top of that, we seem to also be missing "God's Mistake", even though the song never made it to radio, and it should have, it sounds like it was primed for it, the fact that it isn't here is also inexcusable, and costs, in my eyes this album a lot of points. This album is the reason why I seek out the original TEARS ROLL DOWN hits album. Of course it has it's flaws too but none so devastating.
This album is shameful in the fact that on the surface appears to indeed be the total package, but two very big flaws cause me to look else where and that shouldn't be. I mean, granted, this is about a million times better than the 20TH CENTURY MASTERS collection, those a**holes can't make an accurate capsule of a band even if they only had 10-12 hits in the first place. Leaving out "Pale Shelter" and "Mad World" I mean come on you just can't do that! And they too, have the "I Believe" re-recording..ARGH!... Anyway for the most part this album is everything you may want, if you don't mind losing an awesome track and putting up with the degredating of another, then this album is for you.
I do think this is a generally good compilation, but when based on quantity, and not quality. 12/17

About four or five songs that I like. It's worth the five dollars that I payed, it's got some classics from the eighties.

I bought the cd for about 2 songs on the whole thing. Most of the songs on the cd stink as far as I am concerned.
