Ok I don't actually own this yet, but I'm a collector of Soft Cell material and this has some great inclusions. This is A and B side material, and non-album singles. I don't want to tell you all the time (and fun) it took in getting my Soft Cell collection, but here it is in one release... seriously... I'm blown away (and ordering in another window). While I suggest those who find themselves "into" Soft Cell to never skip any of the SOFT CELL releases as they are nearly all solid in content, this release contains the singles from each of their albums, the B sides of those releases, and includes some titles only released as singles. I would say start here if you are new to Soft Cell and fill in the gaps later. And to any Soft Cell fan who has all the albums but sees a song he/she is not familiar with... its a great one ~ what are you waiting for?

Vintage Soft Cell and is the only commercially available CD that includes "It's a mug's game", which makes it worth the money right there. This song alone takes me back 3000 miles and about 15 years to Southern California circa 1985 when KROQ DJ Jed the Fish used to play this tune incessantly and I didn't realize how much I loved it until I stopped hearing it. Still think the original version of Tainted Love is the best.

Brought back very fond memories of trying to do the obligatory 'Robot Dancing' in Summer of '83. Nicely Packaged (3 - Discs take up the same space as a single!). Brought back memories of Big Hair, Lots of Make-up, trying to dance with the Ra-Ra Girls in Newcastle Night Clubs in England c 1982-3. Remembered the Monologue in 'Torch' word for word! Now married with three kids and it seems so long ago!! This is much Better Than a Straight 'Best Of' Album. Digi-Mastering is good too.

I own this Soft Cell import. At the time of purchase I
really had to debate with myself on the price. ($33).
Having played this collection of "memoborillia" a few times,
I can honestly say it is the best mix ever assembled by the
Soft Cell people. Who can resist the inter-twining of Marc
Almond's voice and Mark Ball's beefy synthesizers? The music
swirls and twines to null the senses.However,if you want to
pay a little over $50 for this import, make sure you know the
songs, or are a collector. On the other side of the Soft Cell
house, there is the question of rarity.

I used to live in NW.London, England, and follwed Soft Cell's
rise to stardom. The seedy nightclub imitations ("Non Stop Erotic
Caberet"),the sometimes lopsided lyrics, crazy late nights
{with George Michael, Andrew Ridgley and the Wham! entourage}.
Yes, those days are hard to find on CD. I purchased "The Art of
Falling Apart", on vinyl a few months ago, with the infamous song
'Martin' locked into the grooves. (The 12" version is on the cassette tape.)
Therefore alternatives exist if you have the time to wander around stores
to find a few "rarities". If not this Soft Cell collection may work.

This is a comprehensive 3-CD package of the late, great utterly brilliant SOFT CELL...BUT I have to say, if the label is saying this is the "definitive" 12"/B-side collection, then WHY didn't they see fit to include two glaring omissions for any true Soft Cell fan - I'm talking about the infamous "bonus 12" EP" included in the original U.S. LP edition of THE ART OF FALLING APART, which showcased the FULL 10-minute+ version of "MARTIN" as well as the amazingly twisted cover/medly of Jimi Hendrix' "HEY JOE/VOODOO CHILI" etc? To get THESE tracks, you have to hunt down the Import re-issue of THE ART OF... CD released a few years back - both tracks are worth tracking down - if you don't believe me, you weren't in the audience during SOFT CELL's brief 2002 reunion tour when Marc Almond sang a chilling version of "MARTIN" LIVE!!! Once again, SOFT CELL were way ahead of their time and still are - I love all the NU-ELECTROCLASH stuff, BUT we all have to give it up to SOFT CELL who did it first & much better TWO DECADES AGO!! This collection takes me back to playing all their 12" singles in my bedroom without my headphones on, trying to make that leap into Almond/Ball's...ESSENTIAL STUFF.

Format: Audio CD
The crowning glory of this three CD set is the incredible 14 minute remix of 'Tainted Love'. It brings this classic track up to speed with the nineteen nineties. Using the original strained Marc Almond vocal from the spring of 1981, and all the effects available in the autumn of 1998, the blend is awesome. The beat is stronger, the bass keys are dirtier, and the vocal is right on. New effects on the voice include the "Cher" effect used on "Believe", and tons of echo, reverb, and tone changes. Later on in the mix the beat switches to the Marilyn Manson song "Beautiful People". (And I think I also hear "My Sharona" in there too!) Okay, I know there is more to this set than the new 'Tainted Love'. All the great songs are hear, including "Persuasion", "Facility Girls", "Barriers" and "Disease and Desire". The sound quality kicks, and the packaging is nice. I agree with the above reviewer that the cardboard packaging kinda sux, but just grab yourself a jewel box that holds three Cd's! Hats off to Mercury for having the class to issue this great package and a big thanks to Club '69 for thier great remix of Tainted Love. Now if they would only release 1980's 'Mutant Moments' on CD. (And the Some Bizzare Album.)
