This is the only Howard Jones album you'll ever need. HoJo was a founder of early 1980s 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. --Beth Bessmer

HJ made Synth-type music slower...and it worked. Whats more, some of his lyrics (that I didn't pay much attention to originally) are actually very good.
Thoroughly enjoyed it. It's an occasional long drive play more than anything else, but its worth the blast from the past alone.
I put the cd on and almost everyone in the room knew every word to the tracks , no one says they didnt like it.
The room lit up with smiles , how often does that happen ?
This is a great collection of H.J.'s greatest hits with all the classics included.
I wonder what Jez is upto now he's no longer in chains
Stated CD quality is dubious from the stated "Very Good". Six CD's ordered together late Saturday night/Sunday morning. Expected all six to e sent together. Got one after a few days, the other five arrived together in a pack that would have held six, go figure? Duran Duran CD a lot of minor scratches plays fine (not very good). Howard Jones CD some minor scratches plays fine (suitable for very good). Aerosmith CD is very good with the jewel case protected by it's card outer sleeve. Madness CD has quite few minor scratches but has one major one. So far it plays ok but I have not listened to all tracks fully. has cracked jewel case. Human league CD again some scratches and cracked jewel case. The last CD was Adam Ant, cracked jewel case again, but what the hell was on the CD. Imagine a teething child with food in one hand and this cd in the other. Give it half an hour and the child has eaten food, sucked cd, repeat process, child confused tries to eat cd, eats more food, repeats process a few times, parent finds child removes cd and places back in jewel case as is and zoverstocks send it to me. Cd was covered in food both sides with dried liquid/saliva. I could not tell condition of cd surface as I could not see it. I had to wash the cd to remove the deposits and it was left to air dry. After drying the cd has many surface scratches (or teeth marks if I am right) but no serious ones hence as far as I can tell it plays fine. Considering the enormous variation in quality, the "Very Good" statement should be taken with a pinch of salt. It should be replaced with pot luck or plays fine (baby food excluded of coarse). Had to post service review here on the items as it is too long for a seller review.
This album compilation is excellent, and includes all the classic hits. If your into Synthesizers as I am, and love electronic pop music. Look no further. A must album for 80's music fans. Seeing him in concert, and so close to the stage, you got the feeling that if you had a chance to talk to him you would get on. He was a gentleman, who appreciates his fans very much, and loves to interact with the audience. So, buy the album, chill out and give your ears and soul a treat. You'll soon be dancing around the room, if you still can, Be careful we're getting on a bit, and relive all those, wonderful memories of a magical time, when things were really cool.
