5.0 out of 5 stars Very Best of,,, the title says it all, December 9, 2001
By Jim
Format:Audio CD
This is an amazing collection of Kim Wilde's hits on 1 CD, it has a lot of best of 80's and some best of 90's..
Of course super hits Kids in America, Combodia and who can forget smash You Keep Me Hangin On, that went # 1 in USA.
Kim Wilde has another excellent cover on this album If i can't have you, which was a top 10 all over the world including USA dance club-chart. How can you miss pure Love is Holy written by Rick Nowels.
Of course sit back and enjoy the suprise of this album New song called Loved, its an amazing track # 16, very pop-dance with some electronic flavor song. If you like Madonna, Kylie or Blondie you would love the Very best of Kim

First off, I want to get it out in the open and confess my admiration for Kim Wilde's undeniable good looks. She is a woman who truly just got more beautiful with age. "The Very Best of Kim Wilde" is a U.K. import on EMI and the booklet features some rare photos of Kim in her early '80s punky phase complete with a Pat Benatar-like hairdo. This particular set (which is not the first Kim Wilde Best-of compilation to hit the market) was released in 2001, so Kim would have been around 40 on its cover (having been born in late 1960). Man oh man does she look gorgeous in this photo! I could literally stare at this picture for hours on end. But I digress.

The fact remains though that Kim is one of those rare pop artists who is just as strong on genuine talent as she is in the looks department, and this is a great retrospective of her career from her beginnings with her first hit "Kids in America" in 1981 all the way through the '80s and beyond. It shows her evolution from her early new wave sound to becoming a worldwide pop siren later on that decade.

Before buying this compilation I was really only familiar with her from her one and only American hit, the Supremes cover "You Keep Me Hanging On" and its seductively sexy accompanying video from '86, but while being great, that is not even her best song here. But it's the point where she really hit her stride in mainstream pop music and this set includes tracks from the "Close" album that would serve as follow-up in 1988, the first being "You Came." This song is a work of pop music bliss and perfectly captures the sound and feel of the late '80s. It is so beautiful and uplifting that it can give you a new outlook on life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought it for the hits and got much more December 25, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this collection primarily so I would have high quality remasters of her U.S. hits "Kids in America" and "Keep Me Hangin' On". The samples of other songs on the disc sounded good so I thought the collection would reveal some pleasant surprises. It turns out I love many of the hits that gained popularity in the U.K. and Europe. One of my favorite cds purchased in 2012.
