Disc one has all the hits, except for the original versions of "In the Flesh" and "Good Boys", which I think was a mistake. The originals are far better than the remixes.(For any Blondie fan, the new "In the Flesh" is worth it since it sounds completely different, its basically a new song) Fortunately the original versions are included in Disc 2:The Videos. There is also a great mash-up(I usually hate them but his one works well) of "Rapture" and The Doors "Riders on the Storm". Disc 2 has all the Hit Videos, but the entire Eat to the Beat videos could have been included as a bonus.

The CD is disappointing with awful remixes of In The Flesh and Good Boys, but the DVD more than makes up for it. It's the Best Of Blondie plus 3 new tracks but without the annoying taxi driver bits, so you actually get to see the complete videos.

It's the best of Blondie, remastered, sounding great. The DVD allows middle-aged men to lust after Debbie Harry once again. But there's no love here. No sleeve notes, no lyric sheet, just a discography in the thin booklet. There's a new version of 'In the Flesh' which may be of interest to some and a disappointment to others who realise it's not as good as the original. And the final moments of the CD are completely ruined by the baffling decision to include a terrible remix of 'Good Boys' when the original is one of the best things they've done since their reunion and would have been incredibly welcome here as testament to their continued class. Then, to add insult to injury, it's rounded off by a disastrous mash-up of 'Rapture' and the Doors' 'Riders on the Storm'. Just what nobody ever wanted. What comes before is, of course, pure pop perfection that deserves to be packaged better. However, the inclusion of the DVD makes this the compilation to go for.

Goodness knows the record company doesn't deserve these four stars, but the (original) music deserves more...

If you want a Blondie greatest hits record to collect the classic tracks in one place *as you remember them from back in the day*, steer well clear of this record: The remasterer has been at work, and most, if not all, tracks have pretty clearly been remixed as well as remastered, not to mention shortened. While newer listeners may like the updated sound (in some ways it's a sympathetic update - mostly just a little more bass and drums, and it's fairly subtle - but not so subtle that you can't notice it!) many of us older buzzards will feign righteous indignation that anyone could have dared to meddle with such pop perfection. This is DEBBIE HARRY for crying out loud. Is nothing sacred?

A much better bet for those old timers would be The Best Of Blondie, which was released about 1984, and contains most of the essential tracks, as recorded and (mostly) unedited.

What this collection *does* offer old timers is two things: Firstly, a good quality recording of "Rapture Riders", the mash-up of Blondie's Rapture and the Doors' Riders on the Storm. Purists hate it, but I think it's pretty cool.

Secondly, the original videos. Now Debbie Harry in the late 70s and early 80s was like nothing else on the planet for a boy my age, and to see it on a good sized plasma now, while dated, still sends a shiver down the spine (notably the early ones - Debbie's gorgeous backlighting in Picture This and Heart of Glass deserve a special mention).

Good value - getting the DVD along with the CD. However, all the tracks have been digitally re-mastered by an engineer who must like car audio systems, or MP3 players - totally destroying the dynamic range of all tracks!

This is the who knows how many Blondie collection this makes but this one is a bit different because you finally get a great DVD of their videos that are not held together with some stupid cabbie ruining the beginning of the videos. This is what should have been put out when EMI put out the Greatest Hits collection in 2002 but was not. In the US Capitol (the US EMI since in America EMI no longer exits) put out a similar cd/dvd of Pat Benatar hits and videos and Tina Turner as well. In the UK Blondie and EMI put this collection out because they are on tour this November and Decemeber and this collection will come out in the US next year before Blondie is inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame . So far in the Uk it has done quite well.
So why buy a new HITS collection from Blondie. Well if you put on a new picture that I don't have on the cover I will buy it .Well this cover to the Sight & Sound edition of hits is from the photo shoot that came from the Plastic Letters shoot. If you read the Making Tracks book Debbie Harry talks about the photos taken with the pillow case and red tape as an outfit. Yes Debbie Harry is wearing a pillow case with red tape on it and makes it look so cool. When you buy the cd look under where the cd/dvd are held and you will more closely of what I am talking about. If someone can take a simple everyday bed linen item and use it for clothes and look increbible doing it then you know Debbie Harry is in a league of her own.
Now onto the music. The cd comes with basically every hit Blondie had and features 2 new tracks. I know most people go on at how good "Rapture Riders " is but it is more Jim Morrison than Debbie Harry. But it still works nonetheless.
