    5-0 out of 5 stars Y UN DIA VOLVIERON
    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

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not enough of their non-hits that are still great songs
    I was hoping to make do with a "best of" Three Dog Night, purchasing this CD so that I wouldn't have to replace all of my vinyl.But this is sadly lacking; an incomplete "complete hits" collection.I miss "Pieces of April""My old Kentucky Home" and other of the lesser knowns (still hits in my book) from their old albums.Also, not sure if the equipment on which I played it was off, but I didn't like the mix I got--the balance of high-midrange was too heavy and I wanted the crisp kick from a good treble and bass peak.Still its good to have around just for refreshing me on the lyrics during my alone-time sing-alongs at the top of my lungs. Just want better "back up."

    5-0 out of 5 stars "Jeremiah was a bullfrog!..."
    That is the unforgettable opening line of Three Dog Night's 1971 number one hit right there, "Joy to the World."
    5-0 out of 5 stars Ah, What Memories!

    If you are an America fan, but do not want to buy all their albums or their box set then this album is your best one-CD choice for America.The sound is fantastic and the liner notes are quite thorough.If you need more than this than I recommend this album and their debut album, America.Other albums you may enjoy if you are a fan of catchy, acoustic driven rock:

    Editorial Review

    As a band the Grass Roots were always a shadowy bunch, a front for studio musicians and professional songwriters looking to get their songs on the radio. They scored 14 top 40 hits during their reign in the late '60s/early '70s and their hits were among the catchiest and most enjoyable of the AM radio era."Let's Live for Today," "Midnight Confessions," "Bella Linda," "Two Divided by Love," and a slew of others are shameless pop made brilliant by multilayered harmonies and arrangements that liberally borrowed from folk-rock and R&B. The Grass Roots may have been product, but what great product. --Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Lots of Wonderful Singles
    The Grass Roots began as a platform for P.F. Sloan and Steve Barri, a pair of songwriters, to record their music.The Grass Roots soon became a band for real and eventually began recording more of their own music than the music of Sloan and Barri.The Grass Roots regularly churned out catchy pop tunes that placed well on the charts, though missing out on the top spot.

    This is an excellent anthology of the music of the "Baby-Boom" generation, from childhood to early adulthood.It is definitely the soundtrackof our lives and it evokes many happy memories. Love this music.

    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.

    5-0 out of 5 stars innovative and hilarious
    I saw this performed live and it was phenomenal. The music will keep your feet tapping, and the lyrics are clever and absurdly funny. Behind the humor is a lucid take on love in the 21st century, surviving life in the big city, and stealing free wine from an all-you-can-drink restaurant. This show has a distinctive style and I highly recommend it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Honest and charming...
    I think Salzman and Cunningham have done a bang-up job with the "I love you because" recording... The story seems like a scene from my life, as a single girl living in NYC. I thought the lyrics were smart and witty and so many moments were highlighted beautifully by this delightful score. I'm hyped to see what this team puts out next!

    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.

    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

    Yeah, the music is good (excepting the crappy "Godfather" remake), but this is a little over 60 minutes of music released on two CDs, for no good reason other than to charge the unwitting consumer more money. You could fit the entire collection on one disc, and have room for 8 more songs (they're saving those for "Mob Hits 2", ripping you off at store near you!). There are better compilations out there... and better deals.

    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 The most wonderful children's CD ever made
    My family grew up with these songs, we have gone through multiple copies as they have been well worn & misplaced as we took them everywhere. I am so excited to find that there is an edition still availble as I raise my kids for them to fall in love with all the music from my childhood heart. I have sung more songs to them from off of this album than from anywhere else. I can't recommend this highly enough.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great kids CD
    Our son enjoys this and so do I. Some of the slow songs are a drag, but all in all it is great for kids.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best childrens CD ever!
    My daughter and I adore this CD! We would sing along to it where ever we went! Our favorite is Blueberry Pie by Bette Middler. The CD finally got way too scratched up to play so we have not had the pleasure of hearing it for over a year. :( Emily is 7 now and still asks me to please put on her favorite CD. Now that I have found it again, she will be so happy. ... Read more

    Unless you're a snob, a good Monkees collection belongs on your shelves, not too far from discs by the Turtles, the Lovin' Spoonful, and other avatars of clean, occasionally rocking '60s Top 40 pop. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great CD
    I bought this for my sister at Christmas. She said it sounded good and it had a booklet with info on The Monkees. Had all of their hits except one: "Tapioca Tundra" (don't remember it).

    5-0 out of 5 stars MONKEE SHINES
    THE MONKEES-GREATEST HITS: Just like that other irresistible confectionary treat Sara Lee, nobody, it seems, doesn't like the Monkees. Sure, they were dubbed the "Pre-Fab Four" and granted, they played nary a note on their biggest sellers (I suspect that Davy was even faking the tambourine). Yet they rose above the teen idol/bubblegum tag and churned out some of the best damn 60's singles this side of the Grass Roots and Paul Revere and the Raiders. Neil Diamond, Carole King, and Boyce and Hart were just a few of the top drawer composers and Glen Campbell and Leon Russell examples of the session cream utilized by svengali Don Kirshner to produce AM paydirt. GREATEST HITS ably covers each period of the Monkees' all too brief career, from early singalong classics LAST TRAIN TO CLARKSVILLE and DAYDREAM BELIEVER through their "adult" phase PORPOISE SONG, LISTEN TO THE BAND to their better than average 80's reunion efforts THAT WAS THEN THIS IS NOW and HEART AND SOUL. Hear Peter share a rare lead vocal with Mickey on WORDS! Witness Davy and a punchy brass section kick some serious hiney on VALLERI! Savor a version of I'M A BELIEVER that shreds SHREK's take to ribbons! This anthology is more fun than a barrel full of...Nope! Forget it. Giddy as I feel after spinnin' this delightful disc of pure pop perfection, you can't make me say it! RATING: FIVE BANANAS
    3-0 out of 5 stars There good
    I must admit my favirote group outsiede of Christian rock is the Beatles just cheack out Rubbersoul and the white album out. The monkeys had some good songs Im a Beliver and Daydream believer to name a few. There good, but to compare them to the Beatles music is silly.GodBless ... Read more

    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.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Christmas?
    Sorry to ruin your party, but Christmas music gets old after a while. By a while I mean about the day after Thanksgiving. You can only have so much Christmas, and that Christmas music must not suck. I get overloaded by pathetic Christmas music everyday and it pushes me over the edge. By the time I get home (By the way, why does every radio station play Christmas music?), I have to crank up some Pantera, In Flames, Megadeth, Slayer, or Shadows Fall. That's how I am alive and well.

    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.)

    Editorial Review

    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....
