I went out and got this album after watching the film Mannequin and hearing the song "nothings going to stop up us now". All I can really say is that if you like 80s power pop then this albumn is for you.
I have it on tape and just have to have it on my Ipod too so I am buying the CD album. Its got to be good for someone to buy it twice.
Nearly every song on here is uplifting, you feel like you have conqured somthing big after listening to it.
Fantastic Classic 80s power pop ballards you want to hear again and again, totally brillant !

More of A Bridge Than A Greatest Hits Album. 12 Feb 2005
By Ken Fontenot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Jefferson Airplane was considered a really good rock outfit. They were a key part of the sex, drugs and rock n' roll of the 70's. Swiftly they began to change. From battles over the name of the band to member changes to style changes, the group seemed more like three or four bands than one. The musical styling changes prove that. Those changes can be heard throughout this album.

The earlier songs found here, especially "Jane," hearken back to the days when this band was built to rock. Songs like "No Way Out" revealed the changes to come as the band metamorphosed one more time into a pop/arena rock outfit. Of course, this change lead to their big hits of the 80's, such as "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" and "Sara," which are included here. The album also includes a couple of new tracks which are pretty good, "Good Heart" and "Don't Lose Any Sleep," which show a band embracing their new pop sound to perfection.

Of course, there are always songs that bring about controversy, and "We Built This City" is that song on this compilation. Much like Styx's "Mr. Roboto," this song is either loved or detested by all that hear it. I'm one of those schmucks who loves the song. It's been rated one of the cheesiest songs ever on a multitude of television shows and in magazines. It's also been called one of the best pop tunes ever. No matter which side of the fence you're on, it's here for you to sample.

In closing, all you can really say about this album is that it gives you a taste of what once was Jefferson Airplane, what became Jefferson Starship, and what eventually went down in flames groupwise as Starship. All of the songs on this album are keepers, but there's nothing especially groundbreaking here. Just keep in mind that Starship is the pop version of Jefferson Airplane, and you won't be let down.

Fantastic album that made a fan out of me. 8 Jan 2000
By Matt Coker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" was the only song I knew when I bought the album. After only I few listens, there wasn't a single song on the album that I didn't enjoy. Its an exceptional collection, tweleve fantastic songs and no loose ends. The album opens with five Jefferson Starship songs from the period of 1979-1984. "Jane" (from FREEDOM AT POINT ZERO) is an excellent rocks song, with fantastic bocal effects. "Find Your Way Back" and "Stranger" from 1981's MODERN TIMES are equally intriging. "Find Your Way Back" is as incredible rock song as "Jane", with outstanding guitar work. "Stranger" has fantastic production, with great production and masterful vocals from Mickey Thomas and Grace Slick. "No Way Out" is a terrific love song, a lot different than the preceeding three songs, but not any less marvelous. "Layin' It On The Line" is the last of the Jefferson Straship songs, and both this and "No Way Out" came from the great record NUCLEAR FURNITURE. "Don't Lose Any Sleep" recorded in 1990, features only Mickey Thomas and Craig Chaquico, but its still an outstanding song. The second half of the record starts of all systems go, with three consecutive #1 hits. "We Built This City" is as enjoyable after 5000 times as it is the first. Exceptional keyboard arrangements and wonderful vocals keep the song fresh and eager. "Sara" is a gorgeous ballad, magnificently perfomed. These two #1s from the 1985 release KNEE DEEP IN THE HOOPLA are both worthy of their chart status. My favorite song is still "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now", which is as fanscinating today as it was when I heard the song in a movie. The song is four minutes and twenty-nine seconds of perfection. "It's Not Over (Till It'S Over)" is a great song. These two songs from 1987's NO PROTECTION album, the last record to feature Grace Slick. "It's Not Enough" from 1989's LOVE AMONG THE CANNIBALS (Starship's last new album), isn't any less spectacular than the preceeding songs. "It's Not Enough" is a fantastic rock songs, with magnificent perfomances. The last song is "Good Heart" which brings the CD to a masterful close. I don't know where "Key To The City" is, I've never heard of the song. If you're looking for an outstanding album, you can't miss with GREATEST HITS (TEN YEARS AND CHANGE), 52 minutes of pure entertainment.

This is a good, over-the-top '80s rock album! 30 May 2004
By Preston L. Moreaux - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I liked this Starship album compiling their hits between the name changes of Jefferson Starship and Starship. I loved Jane when it came out in 1979 and the other songs from '84 to '90 are full-blown over-the-top rockers! They were like a milder Van Halen under the newer name with the excess and bombast. The pre-'84-85 songs don't grab me as much as the others. Some of the songs actually sound good in Atlanta--the skyline of that city matches very well to the songs and landscapes. We Built This City still rocks, I still like the calm to blasting vibes of No Way Out, Sara still has that mysterious feel to it, It's Not Over still is charging, and I still like the Mike Shipley sound of It's Not Enough. Paul Kantner and Mickey Thomas were good as the lead singers, but no one mentioned Marty Balin? To me, he was also another strong lead singer in that band when he was in it. Through a lot of conflicts over the group name, this album justifies their success in the '80s. Surprising that most of the songs average in the 4 1/2 minute range.

3 #1 hits, here for your listening pleasure 25 May 2003
By Lee G. Gilman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Say what you will about them, but Starship has 3 Number One hits. Starship established themselves as one of the best performers of pop ballads of the mid-late 80's, with #1 hits Sara and Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now. Both are among my favorite pop ballads, and the song Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now has actually prompted me to see the movie Mannequin which features this song. And you can't forget about We Built This City , their first #1 hit in 1985. The Jefferson Starship-era songs are OK, but not my cup of tea. I much prefer the pop sound of Starship, which is on the second half of this CD.

Enjoyable pop rock listen for its time 9 Nov 2002
By Brad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am one who was never a big fan of the old Jefferson Airplane, and even some of the Jefferson Starship offerings (right up through "Nuclear Furniture") I had trouble listening to from beginning to end. Only with the admittedly very pop Starship era could I truly enjoy listening to entire albums by this band. (I in fact have all three full-length albums of new material under the "Starship" moniker.) That being said, this compilation is truly a fine representation of the biggest pop/rock hits of the latest era of this band.
How can you go wrong with such classic rock fare as "Jane" and "Find Your Way Back"? "No Way Out" was a great, somewhat forgotten hit during the last year that "Jefferson" was still in the band's title. And of course, the era of the band's biggest hits--during which I bought their original albums--was great with ballads like "Sara" and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" and uptempo, fun tracks like "We Built This City" and "It's Not Over (Til It's Over)". It is a bummer that the radio edit version of "We Built This City" (i.e., the version without the DJ's voice) is what is included here, but it is still great to listen to along with all the other big hits and a couple of unknowns that measure up to the rest of the tracks (e.g., "Good Heart"). I also have to rave about "It's Not Enough", a mid-tempo melodic gem that was the band's last top 40 hit and on their last album of all-new material.
I do wish that "Tomorrow Doesn't Matter Tonight", the top 40 single following the two classic #1 smashes "We Built This City" and "Sara", was here. I also remember hearing songs like "Beat Patrol" and "I Didn't Mean To Stay All Night" on the radio briefly. It would have been nice to hear a few more obscure tracks like these that were released as singles. Still, this collection is good in that it doesn't leave out any of the most well-known hits from the era covered--both in terms of classic rock and the pop charts.
In summary, as one who is an '80s music fan I have certainly heard more exciting pop/rock collections, but this one is certainly very enjoyable and more than worth a listen. If you enjoy the pop-based later years of this band's career and enjoy that '80s melodic pop/rock sound, then this collection is definitely for you.
