De/Vision has been one of the most important synthpop bands from German, forging the way for the contemporary scene and showing how this genre is ready to push back into the mainstream alternative pop market. This album features De/Vision's most popular songs from their first 10 years together as a band.
Featuring most of their singles... "Zehn" (ten) is a pure masterpiece of synth-pop. -- electroage.lowlife.com

This release is a compilation of their best tracks from 8 years or so of albums. Although it obviously lacks the context which each of the earlier albums would give one (the only reason why it has only been given 4 stars), it is nonetheless a compelling audio experience with almost no weak songs and several excellent ones. The coldly-eyed atheistic "Dinner Without Grace" and intensely romantic "Dress Me when I Bleed" are better than excellent and nothing short of outstanding. It is even more remarkable that the former is quite fast-paced while the latter is morbidly slow, for it shows that De/Vision are able to create superb songs which differ significantly in conception.
All the earlier albums are available on www.amazon.de. For those who are skeptical, philistine or impecunious this is simply an album which one is aesthetically poorer having not heard - it must be purchased.
My favorites include:(Upbeat)- "Try to forget"***/"Your hands on my skin."***/"Dinner without Grace"***/"Free from cares"**/"Get over the wall"**/"Sweet Life"**/"I regret"***/All the remixes are cool too!
(Slower)- "Someone to draw the sword"**/"Dress when I bleed"***/"Like the sun"***/"Moments we shared"***
