Import-only compilation from the British Pop and Soul vocalist best known for being the singing half of Synthpop duo Yazoo (or Yaz, as they are known in the U.S.). When Yazoo split after their sophomore album, Moyet continued as a solo act, releasing a handful of albums and some extraordinary singles. This collection contains all the tracks originally available on her Singles Collection and adds six more: 'Don't Go', 'Winter Kills', 'Blue', 'Our Colander Eyes', 'Ne Me Quitte Pas' and 'There Are Worse Things I Could Do'. With a Yazoo reunion in 2008, interest in all things Alison Moyet is at an all-time high. 20 tracks in all. Sony.

Almost all of the essential singles are here except 'Hoodoo' from the album of the same name and most of her singles with 'Yaz/Yazoo'. A greatest hits package of Ms. Moyet really can't be comprehensive without 'Situation', and the original version of 'Ode to Boy' or 'Only You' however in terms of singles - this is close. Fans of Alison Moyet know that many of her album tracks are better than the singles and the record companies really should be releasing a greatest hits package with a second 'B-sides' and rarities cd.
Thankfully, the track 'This House' (which still makes me ache) is included as is the track 'Ne Me Quitte Pas', however the add ons 'Blue' and 'Our Colander Eyes' are dated sounding and disappointing. The songs are listed in chronological order but personally, I prefer G/H packages that are more random.
Alison Moyet is a major talent and deserves a bigger audience. My criticisms are more based on being a long time fan so I think I know everything, but pick this up - you won't be disappointed.
