Format: Audio CD
In the eighties, when pop music (at least in Britain) was dominated by synthesisers, the Bangles provided a contrast with their guitar-driven rock music. They were not alone, of course – Dire Straits and Bruce Springsteen also come to mind – but they were very much in the minority. The Bangles recorded a lot of upbeat, fun songs so did not always get the credit they deserved.
This compilation contains the three huge international hits that everybody remembers. Manic Monday is an up-tempo rocker. Walk like an Egyptian is a novelty song that (to some people) destroys their credibility but I love it. Eternal flame is a lovely ballad, more recently revived by Atomic Kitten who had a huge UK hit with it.
Apart from those three, they had several other hits, not as successful as the famous three but very entertaining. These include the original songs If she knew what she wants, Walking down your street, In your room and Be with you, together with a cover of Simon and Garfunkel's Hazy shade of winter.
Anybody who loves guitar rock of the type that was common in the sixties and early seventies will surely love the music of the Bangles. If you want just one of their albums, this is the one to go for.

The Bangles are the most successful all female band in UK chart history ( the Spice Girls are not a 'band' because they don't play their own instruments. They are counted as a 'vocal group'). When you listen to this hits compilation, it is easy to see why. The songs are terrific and varied; Susanna's voice is fantastic; the four members make top-notch harmonies and play their instruments skilfully. 'Eternal Flame', their 1988 no.1 , is of course a highlight, as are the well-known hits 'Manic Monday' and 'Walk Like An Egyptian'. Other standouts include the US no.1 'Hazy Shade Of Winter', Debbi's 'Be With You' and the Bangles' first single 'Hero Takes A Fall'. That said, every track is very good and most are excellent. Now that the band has reformed, expect to see this hits collection added to in the near future!
The Bangles are:
Susanna Hoffs (Vocals, Rhythm Guitar) Michael Steele (Vocals, Bass Guitar) Vicki Peterson (Vocals, Lead Guitar) Debbi Peterson (Vocals, Drums)

Though 'The Bangles' didn't have a long chart career in the U.K, they
did however record a couple of the most memorable numbers of that era.
Must admit I spent a few pennies on the Juke-Box playing 'Walk Like
an Egyptian'
The number they are best known for of course is 'Eternal Flame' which
was in fact their only number one, it stayed at the Top for four weeks
back in 1989 and of course appears on numerous 'Best Of' and Love
albums' down the years and continues to do so.
They achieved seven Top 30 hits which included five Top 20 those being
'Manic Monday' 'Walk Like an Egyptian' 'Eternal Flame' 'Hazy Shade of
Winter' and 'Walking Down Your Street' (all the hits on-board this album)
The Group certainly a significant part of the 80's Pop-Scene.....as with all
my music reviews, I'm playing the album whilst writing the review,
A Must for collector's of 80's music- memorabilia.

Bought this album to replace a copy that I had originally on Cassette. The Bangles were what I would consider to be a very good female rock band.

Years ago I heard what were The Bangles only two or three really good tracks and remembered them. Upon returning to pop music I remembered them and ordered the CD. Apart from those tracks it is very average indeed.
