    Para todos los fans de DPM, estos 2 DVDs y un CD son simplemente extraordinarios.
    2-0 out of 5 stars hold the camera still
    cinematography is crap..too many cheap effects...jump cuts, makes for a rough viewing especially compared to devotional or one night in paris..also the sound is flat...does not seem to be very inspired...

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best DM live dvd by far
    This is by far the most enjoyable dvd by DM. Yes i am sure that Devotional DVD and Exciter DVD were great but in terms of denstiy and powerful, it seems that this dvd is better, Anton is great for making music video but i don't think he is good for live performance as the camera angels in Devotional DVD and Exciter DVD looked plain and focus too much on the screens and stage (which he designed).Yes, i agreed with other reviewers that there're a bit too much of effect on this

    Editorial Review

    While English pop monarchs Duran Duran have remained active for two decades, it's clear that the indomitable ensemble was at its peak during those mercurial '80s. This greatest-hits collection documents the band's ambitious beginnings as a funky glam-rock outfit and follows its gradual transformation into a high-tech pop band with loads of commercial appeal. Featuring now-classic tunes like "Girls on Film," "Rio," and "Planet Earth" as well as more recent songs like "Ordinary World," Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars just good stuff
    This has every good and great song Duran Duran has done to date.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Had all my faves but a couple were "snipped"
    Had all the favorites I love and remember, but was very dissappointed by the shortened versions of "Save A Prayer" and "Hungry Like the Wolf".Yes, us true Durannies know the difference!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not a Single Duran Duran Hit Missing
    This compilation contains all Duran Duran's hits. From "The Reflex," "Rio," "Save a Prayer," and other eighties classics to some of their later tunes like "Come Undone" and "Electric Barabella," it spans their entire career as influential new-wave musicians.

    Reviews (149)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great for the casual DM fan
    The Singles 86>98 covers all the hits the popular synth-pop band Depeche Mode put out during this 12 year period. Included are the radio classics "Personal Jesus", "Enjoy the Silence" and "Policy of Truth" as well as more recent material like "Home", the exclusive track "Only When I Lose Myself" and a live version of the old single "Everything Counts." It seems as though this 2CD set was compiled mainly for the casual fans of the band, such as myself, but it still does a good job laying out all of the band's top work in chronological order.That said, it seems as though maybe 2 discs are a bit unnecessary - as several tracks from the second CD don't particularly hold up quite as well as those from the first. Still, this is an excellent package that showcases some of the finest work of Gore, Gahan and Fletcher.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Depeche Mode's best.
    All the singles are great. This is a must have for any Depeche Mode fan. Better sound than Violator.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A truly amazing compilation album
    This teriffic 2 disc set spanning the second half of Depeche Modes' career is amazing. Among the hits such as "Personal Jesus" and "Enjoy the Silence", this album, along with the original greatest hits, is an essential collection to pop fans everywhere! ... Read more

Highlights include "Blue Monday," "Thieves Like Us" and "The Perfect Kiss" and sparkling Stephen Hague remixes of "True Faith" and "Bizarre Love Triangle." Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Better than the UK Version
    All tracks are classics in their own way a must have for any diehard New order fan as the track listing differs from the UK version. Gone are the tracks found on Substance and in come the opening tracks from new orders first 3 albums + Lets Go(Nothing for me) a barnstormer of a track which I believe is only available on here or on the Retro box set. All in all a fine add on to your collection.

    5-0 out of 5 stars 7 Years and Going Strong
    That's how long it's been since I've discovered New Order and, consequently, it's also how long they've been my favorite band.I am reviewing this album a second time because I forgot the e-mail and password I had for my other account (brilliant move, I know).With that said, this sweet, resplendent compilation was the second CD I purchased by the group, following Substance.While I love both collections with about the same intensity now, I have to admit that I liked New Order's "Best Of" much more at the start.While Substance is an awesome album of singles that is a nessecity for any true fan of the band, "The Best Of New Order" is more accessible to new fans as well as to those who may be only casual listeners.The songs are short, but sweet: an excellent fusion of rock, pop and techno.It's difficult to choose the standouts, because doing so would mean having to name at least 3/4's of the tracks on this CD.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Innovative
    I'm a college student, and I find that current pop music doesn't do it for me. In fact, most of my friends listen to music that dates from the 1960s to the early 90s. I love this CD, New Order is very easy to listen to and enjoy. You can even hear the foundations of modern day house music within some of the tracks. The melancholy tone of the lead singer is definitive of a lot of the pop in the 80s, yet he does not bore you. Although I do admit, you can tell that all the tracks have somewhat of a general way of being constructed; so I recommend listening to the 30 second snippets that Amazon provides to decided if you really want to buy it. However, if you want a CD that is somewhat definitive of 80s Brit Pop, and made a huge impact on the Pop scene, I would definitely recommend buying this. It's a great compilation of the music by New Order. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    This is the only Howard Jones album you'll ever need. HoJo was a founder of early '80s synth-pop, which was as easy to sing to as it was to dance to. The rhythms on this record pop like new wave corn kernels in heated oil, tempered by Jones's high-strung vocals extending over the top. Jones makes good use of the bright synth piano patches available during that time, especially during "Things Can Only Get Better." "No One Is to Blame" is a solid ballad, just Jones and his keyboard. It's heartfelt and regretful--a little cheesy, but in a good way. Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best singers of the 1980s
    There are some songs that I like in this collection like "What Is Love?," "Things Can Only Get Better," "No ONe is To Blame," and "Everlasting Love." HOward Jones has always had a great voice and probably still does. His music is soulful and smooth. I was surprised to like the song, "I.G.Y (What A Beautiful World)," which became a personal favorite. The other songs in this collection like "New Song," "Pearl In The Shell," "Always Asking Questions," "Like To Get To Know You Well," "Life In One Day," "You Know I Love You.. Don't You?," "Hide And Seek," "Look Mama," "The Prisoner," "Lift Me Up," "Tears To Tell," "Two Souls," and "City Song"are only some of his greatest music. I don't think Howard Jones and his music or voice should ever be forgotten. I think his voice is timeless and his songs are classic love ballads.
    5-0 out of 5 stars HOJO...a talent in an age of vision
    By the above, I mean the need for the visual, the image.Howard Jones brought these to the table as well.Spikey hair, veggie hippie who made videos that were inventive and quite entertaining.But in the end, it is all about the music, and here is where Howard Jones will leave a mark in history.
    4-0 out of 5 stars After 20 years, a memorable return HoJo-land!
    My sister got me hooked on Howard Jones about the same time she got me hooked on Pet Shop Boys and The Art of Noise, circa 1985-1987.This was long before I began forming my own musical tastes, and in 2002 when my wife and I liquidated our entire cassette collection in favor of going strictly digital, I had not intended to re-purchase any of the Howard Jones albums in CD, simply because I felt I had, at age 29, outgrown them.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ok, so "Violator" is mainstream Depeche Mode
    but I don't think it lessens the value of this recording.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Not as long as "Music for the Masses", but just as definitive!
    Whereas "Music for the Masses" was my personal soundtrack for the summer of 1989, Depeche's follow on album "Violator" was my soundtrack for the summer of 1990.Neither as long nor as eclectic as "Masses", Violator still rocked my young world when I popped it into my car stereo in the spring of 1990, and kept me rocking until the first frosts hit in October.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Bliss
    I discovered Depeche Mode lately and simultaneously realized why so many sad little kids back in the day loved them so.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Some Great Remastered Version of 'Reward on CD & DVD
    While many fans consider 1986s Black Celebration to be the pinnacle moment when the band crossed over into truly dark territory, it was 1984s Some Great Reward that garnered Depeche Mode worldwide appeal, including for the first time, in the US.The breakthru hit single: People Are People, would cause a massive outcry of interest in the band and lead to another attempt at appeal in the States, that would come true.What's of course ironic today is the fact that the band, including song writer, Martin Gore, no longer particularly care for People Are People anymore, even though it is still one of their all time biggest hits.(To the best of my knowledge, it hasn't been performed live since the famed 101 concert in Pasadena, California.)

    Is there anything that simply screams the 1970s' most indelible pop cultural clichés--the sunny romanticism, perfect vocal hooks, feathered hair, stacked heels, and flared sateen britches--more than the Swedish pop phenomenon Abba? And while many a pundit snootily dismissed them during their prime as some sort of prefabricated aberration, their worldwide popularity peaked somewhere just south of Beatlesmania. Indeed, Abba's music was as finely tooled and crafted as anything to come from a Volvo or IKEA factory--if occasionally more economically potent. This double-disc, 37-track anthology comes neatly on the heels of Read more

    Editorial Review

    Few filmmakers managed to capture the awkward coming-of-age catastrophes of '80s teens the way John Hughes did, just as few soundtracks encapsulate the sound of an era better than this one does. It's not the best 1986 had to offer, but it's a cohesive whole, transporting the listener to that other time, imagined or otherwise. There's enough variety to ensure that it doesn't become wallpaper, and very little filler. "Left of Center" by Suzanne Vega, with Joe Jackson on piano, is tremendous and transcends generations. Psychedelic Furs frontman Richard Butler has long been bemused about Hughes not taking Molly Ringwald's character's name from the title song, which inspired the film, but everyone was paying too much attention to what Ducky was wearing to notice anyway. --Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must have for fans of the film or anything 80s
    John Hughes' "Pretty in Pink" has always been a favorite movie of mine. I fell in love with it immediately. It is easily one of the greatest teen movies ever and is rivaled only by "The Breakfast Club" as the best "Brat Pack" flick of the 80s.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Much loved music
    I was in HS when the movie/music came out.Wore out my tape, twice, and melted another on my car dash in the hot sun and had to wrestle a fourth tape copy from my little brother who'd since discovered how awesome the Furs and Bunnymen were.Ahhh, memories.Still enjoy a good reminiscing now and then.I think I've gotta break down and buy it on CD finally!(Four rather than five stars just means I'm a tough grader!It's a great album, nice mix, very 80's retro.)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Lovely
    I had watched Pretty in Pink a couple of times when I was about four. Years went by, and I found myself in a used CD store, throwing over a couple of bucks for this soundtrack, I went home, stuck it in my CD player, and all of these memories from the movie came rushing back, I cried. It was so odd, I hadn't remembered any of the movie before then, but the minute If you Leave came on, I could picture Andy hugging Ducky....

    4-0 out of 5 stars Finally -- American Radio Version of Rock Me Amadeus - Falco
    On every 80's collection I own (and I do have a lot) Rock Me Amadeus by Falco is featured only as the German Version.This is the only collection I found with the American radio edit with the dates detailing Mozart's life.So for that reason alone, it may be worth it to get it.Otherwise is seems the same as every other 80's collection out there.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Ultra Trance 6 is cool...
    Ultra Trance 6 is pretty good...I mean it's better than other ultra trance compilations...this is the best after Ultra Trance 4. CD1 is the party going one... Natasha's "Unwritten" was praized by some reviewers...but it didn't really do much on me...ok the party starts on song 2..."Fasterkill Pussy Cat" which is Oakenfold's best....then there's two electro progressive songs...which are not bad...the Anthems begin in song 5 "Minimal" such a smooth song...it's awesome, "Cut" is nice and mellow..."Living On Video" is very addicting..."Tracking Tresure Down" slow and mellow, who said trance was progressive all the time? "He's A Pirate" Tiesto is awesome!, ok then the last three songs sound almost the same...Cascada style kind of thing...but Kim Sozzi's "Break Up" is...I don't know...I just like it...
    3-0 out of 5 stars Kinda a Disappointment.....
    This Ultra Trance 6 cd is NOT like any other Ultra Trance cd.If you are looking for something a little different and new, then you might care for this more than I did. But if you love the traditional Ultra Trance cds and expect to get the same thing, then I recommend that you listen to the cd BEFORE you buy it.Some tracks are put together really well, but there might not be enough of them to get the cd.There is much better trance out there.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Lot Better Than The Previous one....
    Let me start off by saying that I was very excited to hear that this comp was coming out and i am very happy i bought it. Last year, Ultra Trance 5 was released and i was not happy at all, the only track i like was probably "Still NoT Sorry" by Mynt. WIth that said, this Ultra Trance 6 is very likeable the songs are so great i cannot stop listening to them. On the first disc i would have to say that Plumb's "Cut", basically the whole thing but Depeche MOde should not have been included but oh well i can skip that one. Everything else on disc 1 is a sure treat it's just that good, trust me. Disc 2 is also very well put together and i have a feeling Ultra Records just got back on track because lately we all know that they've been just releasing some really lame comps. THis one reminds me more of the Ultra Trance 4 and 3 comps. If you like trance techno this is a must for you basically. It does not dissapoint. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    There was a time when you couldn't step into a dance club without hearing at least part of this recording booming over the sound system. The often over-played hit, "Situation," was a bubbling caldron of nasally synth noodlings, a whopping bass line, and drum machine wallops. Alison Moyet's looped laugh in the middle of the song ended up as a sample, over-used a thousand times over. Yaz was an interesting blend of Moyet's smoky blues and jazz tinged vocals with Vince Clarke's digital disco. Moyet's voice alone was instrument enough, and the melodies here perfectly showcased her incredible range. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Don't go.....
    You'll NEVER remove this disc from your player.This is a promise to all the music lovers out there.Young and old alike.This collection of tracks sways from the digital orgasm of Clarke's instrumentation to the bassa boom of Moyet's vocals.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Can't get it out of my mind
    These comments apply to "Upstairs at Eric's" and "You and Me Both" by Yaz:
    5-0 out of 5 stars odd pairing, brilliant results
    the marriage of uber-goofy, reclusive synth god/godfather and soul/jazz vocalist/temptress alison moyet seems an unlikely pairing; however, if opposite really do attract, then this is a match made in heaven.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Bizarre, creative, schizophrenic and experimental - Depeche Mode's best
    It's unfortunate that the band do not have a greater affection for this classic album, because I have always found it their most daring, exciting and experimental album. It is a bit schizophrenic with the addition of some out of place bubblegum pop songs, but that adds an interesting contrast to the otherwise dark tone of the album.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must have!!!!
    love'd it!!from electricity to live and die,are just one of the few of my favtys.I highly recomend this to all those 80's fans out-there.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Synthsational.
    I never thought much of Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark until I got this collection. Now I think quite alot of them. This disc is simply a must for fans of early 80's music, specifically the synth/pop genre. I enjoy every track here, but there are a number of them that really stand out. "Enola Gay" was a big hit, and can be found on many an 80's compilation. "Souvenir" is a simple and almost moving song that I enjoy. "So In Love" was a nice surprise to me, as I've always liked it alot, but didn't know it was an OMD song until now. Then there's possibly their biggest hit "If You Leave", which was on the great "Pretty In Pink" soundtrack. However, to me the best thing on here is easily "Forever Live And Die". That song is just one of the magic 80's hits for me, with a perfect beginning, and overall one of the coolest of the decade. The rest is still a pleasure, and a welcome addition to my CD stack.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest Hits Failure
    Greatest Hits compilations always fall short.I even find if I make one a year or so later it needs to be changed.I have to say this one is really good.I can listen to it straight through and both the early material and the late material stands up.I remember a review of their early work commenting that the reviewer hated synths, but recognized the quality of OMD'S so the album was OK, but they also hated their voices and made a joke about them not being blessed with good ones.Of course the thing I always loved about OMD besides their synth work was their voices.It is tough for me to understand others opinions many times.So even though I understand the song selection here, mine would be quite different.I would stick with "Electricity" and "Messages" from the debut.I like almost everything on the debut, but can't argue here.I always found "Enola Gay" to be flat.Great subject, but just can't get into it.I may have to pick this one for the fans, but to me "The Misunderstanding" is my favorite song off their second CD.I love this song.The next release has "Joan Of Arc", "Souvenir" and "The New Stone Age".I don't find the add on "Maid Of Orleans" that exciting and love the Stone Age song.It would be nice to substitute.Dazzle Ships has the obvious "Telegraph", and " Read more

    Editorial Review

    Is it forgivable that the second volume of songs from Adam Sandler's mid-'80s-revival comedy begins with Kajagoogoo's famously limp "Too Shy"? Not really, but the rest of the disc does a good job of recapitulating worthy memories from the era of torn-sweatshirt necks and mulletheads--not just with new-wave novelties but with Madonna and Hall & Oates staples ("Holiday" and "You Make My Dreams," respectively) as bouncy and glossy as anything the also-present Depeche Mode ("Just Can't Get Enough") and Dead or Alive ("You Spin Me Round [Like a Record]") ever put on the radio or MTV. The Cars' "It's All I Can Do" and the J. Geils Band's "Love Stinks" encapsulate the Sandler character's romantic frustrations, while the star's own "Grow Old with Me" actually points toward a serious career as a singer/songwriter for our boy. Eek. Read more

    Aahh...the uniqueness of 80s music.Been looking for the Flying Lizards "Money" song since then.It's been on several movie sound tracks however it never made it on the 'sound track CD' until now."Leisure Rules"

    Editorial Review

    It's a simple concept--the first dozen singles by New Order collected, a couple of them rerecorded--but it's also a totally entertaining seven-year history of the band that married British post-punk alienation to the relentless hedonism of the dance floor. The band's hits were always deeply unconventional (like the haunting "Blue Monday," essentially a seven-minute drum machine test with a short lyric that alluded to the Falklands War), but they were brilliant productions, layering dozens of electronic countermelodies and percussion tricks over Barney Sumner's uncertain warble and Peter Hook's lead bass parts. Though they're audio snapshots of the dance beats of their time, they've held up both as club classics and as idiosyncratic rock songs. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's Substance...what else?
    I've listened to this more times than I've told my Dad that I love him. Maybe my priorities are wrong but this album is practically a family member. A genius overview of New Order's early and mid-career that they should have stuck to on later compilations. The songs here are classics. Some of the best dance music ever made, some of the best rock and roll ever made and some of the best pop ever made with some of the best song titles ever. All put togther with something so sadly lacking in today's ugly world..a little thing called..class.
    1-0 out of 5 stars What's all the fuss...
    Not terrible, but I don't get the hype.To me, it's just New Wave Disco-and Disco was bad in the 70's.Finally, what's this doing in a "Power Pop" category?No freaking way is this remotely Power Pop!What a disgrace to Power Pop lovers.

    3-0 out of 5 stars (three and a half stars) truly a matter of taste
    I'm a big New Order fan.But how can this be, you may ask, if I'm giving "Substance," the band's 1987 greatest hits album (with extra and alternative tracks) only three and a half stars?Here is where musical tastes become very subjective.Simply put, I'm not a huge fan of 80's British techno-pop, where technology (i.e. tinny sounding rhythm machines) took precedence over real instruments.That being said, I do believe that Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook are terrific musicians, whose talents were revealed in their less synthesizer driven tracks, and especially in the band's last three albums, namely "Republic," "Get Ready," and "Waiting for the Siren's Call," which are my three favorite N.O. albums by far.
