I was a bit wary about the John Foxx discography being re-packaged as two disc sets so soon after the recent re-masterings back in 2002, but thought a two-disc retrospective might be a good idea. I was wrong.
For a two-disc release, "Glimmer" is not the complete career overview that it promised to be, but has various gaps, the most notable being only ONE song off the wonderful Golden Section album being included, and In Mysterious Ways being completely overlooked.
In fact, it very Metamatic heavy, and it really is tiring how everyone accepts the snobby/hipster view that "The first is the best, he went pop". A man of such talent doesn't really have throwaway tracks, and I think a complete picture would have been more appropriate.
BTW, there are still extended versions that are commercially unavailable... and with a new set of double disc re-masters and this comp out, that's just unforgivable.
