The best cuts are Strut and Sugar Walls.
S. Quinto
Well, this is not a remastered cd but that's okay because the sound quality of the tracks is simply excellent!
Frederick Baptist
Kenny's soft and rangy voice is complemented by Sheena's lush voice.

The world of Sheena Easton is just that: everyone of her U.S. singles in chronological order. Beginning with her only #1, Morning Train, Sheena looks like just a pretty lady singing nice light pop songs. For those of us who bought her ablums, new there was more to her that this. She had a harder edge than the general public knew. In 1984, she released "Strut" and the world began to take notice. Then in 1985, she released "Sugar Walls" and the world was shocked. It has now been 18 years since the beginning of her career and all these different song stylings are put in place. This is an artist who can and does sing many types and styles of songs. Since they are put in chronological order, you can see the transformation from pop to adult contemporary to dance and R&B. In fact, Sheena is the only artist to date that has put singles in the top 5 of all the singles charts: pop(Morning Train), country(We've got Tonight w/Kenny Rogers), dance(Sugar Walls), adult contempory(For Your Eyes Only) and R&B(The Lover in Me).
This is an album that showcases the virsitility of a very talented artist! Don't miss this one.

The name Sheena Easton takes me back to the 80's growing up in high school .Do you remember her singing on the show Solid Gold? I do , but it seems just yesterday I was watching. The World of Sheena Easton so far is one of my favorites of hers, it is based on the singles collection. I listened to most of these and fell in love with her voice and the lyrics.
My all time favorites are: Weve Got Tonight, I wouldnt beg for water, Almost over you and Sugar Walls.
That would be one amazing concert to go to . I would cry.
Thanks Sheena

If you need a Greatest Hits from this princess of Pop Music, this one is the best, I own other greatest hits from hers, and I can totally said that this version is the best, because includes all the singles releases by this artist from the EMI Label. The best cuts are Strut and Sugar Walls. The worst cut is Machinery, it's sound too robotic. Great pictures of all single sleeves and albums, also Billboard positions. Way to go Sheena! Good Luck in Las Vegas!

Scottish pop doll Sheena Easton was more a singles artist than an album artist, so it was only fair to collect the two or three singles into one album. This collection comprises singles from her first seven albums from her first label, EMI Records, from 1981 to 1987. Key: [on original studio album], {on remastered reissue album}
Ahh, "Morning Train", Sheena's debut single and only US #1! A sensation was born with the combined brass and 80's synthesizer, that sweet/perky/sultry vocal and the irresistible chorus--"My baby takes the morning train/He works from 9 to 5 and then/he takes another home again." At least the guy plays hard as well, so... "Modern Girl" takes it from the woman's perspective: "she manages a smile as he walks out the door/she's a modern girl who's been through this movie before." "She don't fill her world about no single man/but she's getting burnt doing what she can/she is free to be/what she wants to be/all she wants to be is a modern girl." Both these upbeat singles explore the soulless, compartmentalized corporate Wall Street/Madison Avenue world of the 1980's; the first single seems to celebrate it, the loneliness of it slips through. [Sheena Easton]
One of the loveliest, lushest James Bond songs and ballads, "For Your Eyes Only," deserved the #1 and not the #4 spot with Sheena's potent vocals. {You Could Have Been With Me}
Another ballad, the radio-friendly 80's soul of "You Could Have Been With Me" further demonstrates her ability to carry a good ballad. "When He Shines" is a ballad of a man with conflicting sides, "man/child" "mild/bold" "tramp/dude", "a song not easy to write." [You Could Have Been With Me]
Kazoo-like horns introduce the upbeat "Machinery" about a man who seems to flick a girl on like she is a piece of machinery.

Sheena Easton was my favorite singer when I was in high school, and I still love her music. She had an amazing voice, one of the few true sopranos in pop music at the time, and she could sing virtually any kind of material. This features all her singles (English-language only) on the EMI label, so you get plenty of huge hits: The bittersweet You Could Have Been With Me, the provocative Strut, the dreamy For Your Eyes Only, etc. All have aged terrifically well. The set would have been perfect if it could have included her Spanish-language hits and the tracks she recorded for MCA (The Lover in Me; Days Like This). Still, this is the best gathering of her hit material.

I wasn't really a big fan of Sheena Easton when she released "Morning Train". It wasn't until she came out with "Sugar Walls", and "Strut" that she became an instant hit with me. This greatest hits compilation covers her music from 1981 to 1985 roughly. It doesn't include any of the songs she did with Babyface in the later '80s like "Lover in Me", but it's still a great collection for Sheena fans. It sounds great too.

To those of you who've already spent money on an album entitled "Greatest Hits" by Sheena Easton: my condolences--because THIS is the REAL Sheena Easton Greatest Hits album.
The only reason this album doesn't get 5 stars is that two MAJOR, MAJOR hits (both of which went to #2 on the U.S. charts) are missing here (due to, I'm sure, record company pettiness) . The omission of "The Lover In Me" and "U Got The Look" [on which Prince all but ignored Sheena's contribution in his credits--even though the cut would have bombed without her] prevents this album from being a perfect 5. Still, it is an excellent overview of her EMI years, and I highly recommend it.
