So many of Sheena's bona-fide hits are omited from this album that people looking forward to a true "Greatest Hits" collection from this marvelous artist will be disappointed. The REAL greatest hits album from Sheena Easton is entitled "The Singles Collection: The World of Sheena Easton". Check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheena Easton: Greatest Hits November 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I only heard of the 80's pop diva Sheena Easton, born in Scotland, when I watched the 007 James Bond film "For Your Eyes Only", in which she sang the title song. I truly loved her beautiful voice so I decided to get this album. And it's GREAT!!
*Modern Girl* - The first song on this album and very interesting to listen to. About the 'modern girl' who 'doesn't build her world 'round a single man, whose free to be what she wants to be, a modern girl'. This song hit the top 20 charts in the U.S. while it hit the top 10 charts in the U.K. This song was also one of her first single along with "Morning Train (Nine to Five)".
*Strut* - One of the best songs on the whole album! Love the beginning with a neat drum beat, then when the lead guitar comes on. "~Strut I'm cutting out, I'm takin' with no givin', watch me baby while I walk out that door~"
*Wind Beneath My Wings* - A very quiet song with Sheena Easton singing it beautifully.
*We've Got Tonight" - The piano is played very nicely throughout the whole song. Very nice harmony with Kenny Rogers.
*Morning Train (Nine to Five)* - This song was originally called "Nine to Five" but when it made it to America, was changed to "Morning Train" to not confuse it with another song by Dolly Parton's song. A jolly fun song, loving singing along!
*For Your Eyes Only* - THE best song on the whole album, from the 007 James Bond Film "For Your Eyes Only". Love the aquatic sound in the very beginning. Sheena Easton can certainly sing!
*I Wouldn't Beg For Water* - Quiet song with a nice piano in the background.
*When He Shines* - Another very quiet song, one of her weak songs on this album in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best! June 18, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This cd has real musical variety, flowing ballads and upbeat tunes. She discovered 'Wind Beneath My Wings' long before the divine ms.m. I can believe it when Sheena sings it. An excellent cd.

3.0 out of 5 stars A voice this good needs better material May 7, 2000
Format:Audio CD
It almost sounds like Sheena Easton is actually triplets, and none of them share the same musical taste. This collection highlights the incredible diversity of styles Sheena has tried in her brief career, some with better results than others.
Her earliest hits, Modern Girl and Nine to Five, sound a bit too contrived and plastic today. She is excellent in the disco paean Strut, but never followed up on that success.
The best track on this disc from a vocal perspective is the angst ballad Almost Over You, which takes full advantage of Miss Easton's tremendous range, but also reveals the limitation's in her voice.
There are two very steady mid-stream pop cuts, the James Bond theme For Your Eyes Only and an early version of Wind Beneath My Wings.
The most unfortunate inclusion in this collection, despite its commercial and critical success, is the Prince collaboration Sugar Walls. While at the time of its release, the overtly suggestive lyrics were seen as some kind of breakthrough for the sultry singer, the approach quickly reached near-pornographic dimensions and effectively derailed her career.
In fairness, this disc is a very good representation of Sheena Easton's musical career; no continuity, no discernible individual style and an almost schizophrenic lack of direction. Still, beneath all the confusion and distractions is a marvelous voice and a talented artist.
Those who add this disc to their collection won't find it gathering dust in a rack.

2.0 out of 5 stars Catchy&average March 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
most of her material is just catchy.strut for instance was better in 85 but is very dated sounding now.Morning train&for your eyes only are solid Adult-COntempary stables.only The Prince Penned Sugar Walls showcases Her Youth and that song hasn't dated well either.but it was catchy just like most of her stuff in the 80's.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Introduction to Sheena Easton May 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
OK! So this 11-track EMI compilation-CD realised in 1989 doesn't include "You Could Have Been With Me" or "Do It For Love".

And one can wonder why "Wouldn't Beg For Water" is included.

But so what!

A full 20-track compilation would be for die-hard fans only anyway. For others it would be too many songs.

But for anyone who's just curious about Sheena Easton, or once where small fans, this CD gives a perfect impression and reminder of Sheena Easton.

Most of her 80's hits and fine radio-friendly songs (mostly ballads) on EMI are included.

It also shows the different styles Easton pursued during her career; the light catchy pop songs ("Morning Train", "Modern Girl"...), AC ballads ("For Your Eyes Only", "When He Shines"...), dance songs ("Strut"), country ("We've Got Tonight"), and R&B ("Sugar Walls").

I highly recomend this CD!

3.0 out of 5 stars good cuts - almost a perfect collection March 3, 2004
By Tato
Format:Audio CD
This was probably a good compilation in the time in which it was put together. I strongly recommend you to compare this to get "the singles collection" (ASIN: B000002URE) before buying.
Compare the two, and you'll notice "the best of" does contain all major hits of Sheena's. But in the latter, you get additional singles like "you could have been with me" and "machinery" which do have something to offer but definitely sound like minor-success singles. (BTW, both these CDs are missing "u got the look", a single by Prince with Easton's vocal help).
Your final choice will depend on whether you can get your hands on the more complete "singles" and on not getting it for a very large price premium over "the best of".

I bought this in 1991. To tell the truth I didn't really know Sheena Easton's music that well. About the only songs I knew from her were Strut. Which is my favorite song by her. Read more
