While this will appeal the Soft Cell collectors, I think it also makes for a very introduction, or deeper immersion, for those that don't own any Soft Cell CDs, or perhaps never game the band much thought. Soft Cell might not have been considered cutting edge by some of the "new wave" crowd back in the day, but I think this is very strong music and most of these tunes still sound fabulous all these years later. Just hearing a gem like their version of "What" makes me wonder why they weren't an even bigger band.
The only negative to this CD is the actual package. The CDs are housed in a rather flimsy cardboard fold-out sleeve, with no booklet or liner notes to speak of. If you read the small print under each track listing you'll find details about who produced that song, or perhaps song or played trumpet on the track, but that's about it for information. And, as I learned the hard way, this cardboard package is not water resistant!
