Plus, it's great. Some of those videos i've ever seen. Some i never knew existed! Now i have a copy of my own! Yeah!!
If you love O.M.D. as I do, you need to get this for your collection.
I do need to say this though - about Andy McClusky's dance moves on a couple of videos.. it is so excruciatingly embarrassing and absolutely funny to watch.
Hope he could read this, it's just a valid complement. Love the bands' work every single one and on all your albums/remix guys.
I do agree with all he said about the CD and the DVD.
There is ONE reason to buy this set and that is for the 31 promo videos.
I had only seen less than 10 of these over the years and a few of those I have only recently viewed on a UK Remaster of Architecture and Morality from 2003. Subtract those and it's a small number that I've seen and I've been a OMD fan since their first UK release.
The DVD is region free so it will play here in Region 1 country.
P.S. I wish there had been vids for "88 seconds In Greensboro" and "Native Daughters of the Golden West" but they were not singles but "88 Seconds" has the most awesome opening of any OMD song; 38 seconds of drums, guitars and thumping bass---they sound quite Hard Rock for a short bit. [It's on Crush--and I'm not joking.]
Then when I got high-speed internet, I watched their videos on [...].
Then I happened to find this CD/DVD set: Messages - Greatest Hits. After reading the other reviews I thought that the reason to buy this set was for the DVD and that the CD was ok.
I love watching the videos and seeing them on wide screen tv is definately better than [...]! Plus I enjoyed watching the ones I hadn't seen. I would rate the DVD 5 stars.
Then I listened to the CD, and wished that I hadn't waited so long to buy it! The remastering job is fantastic. Messages sounds incredible and really takes off. Maid Of Orleans gave me chills, and the harmony on Forever Live & Die was georgeous.
Plus there were several songs that were not included on the A&M release. The best ones are Sailing On The Seven Seas and Telegraph. But on the downside, We Love You and La Femme Accident were left off. I would rate the CD 5 stars.
That gives this set a total of 10 stars.
I discovered Gemm.com and they sell 45's from all over the world. So I've been buying the early OMD singles, as well as ones by Sweet & Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich - two other UK groups that didn't have much success here. Naturally all three of them are among my favorite groups of all-time.

I've been a OMD fan since 1980. I like most of their earlier stuff. Even though I have several of their vinyls, I wanted something that I could quickly hear.Published on May 1, 2014 by Patrick W
The music was as good as any music of that era, probably better than the music of our era, the sound is unique. The DVD is most excellent. Read morePublished on July 29, 2013 by Adam A. Wanderer
Didn't know they had so many videos! Had been wanting to get this for a while. Must have for any OMD fan! Don't miss out!Published on April 12, 2013 by firstnovaprime
This album does indeed contain all of OMD's 'hits', but it comes up short of actually containing all the best of OMD's work. Read morePublished on March 22, 2011 by DepecheMood
OMD is not just a band producing catchy synthipop songs, there is another experimental side which produced many great songs, especially on the first albums (OMD,Organisation,... Read morePublished on June 6, 2010 by Gunter Vanderhaegen
