To say that this is just another Thompson Twins collection and why bother would be just pure ignorance. This is by far the best and most carefully selected one out there.. Aimed at both the fans and public alike, it contains across two discs every major 12" single the band recorded during their time with Arista Records 1981-88. All your favorites like In the Name Of Love,Love On Your Side,Hold Me Now,Doctor Doctor,You Take Me Up,Sister Of Mercy and Lay Your Hands On Me are here in their unedited extended form. Each track has been carefully remastered from the original master tapes for the best possible sound. Anyone who is a sound enthusiast or critic needn't worry, there's no vinyl rips, brick walled loud shrill recordings or any inferior audio present. Frontman Tom Bailey has also provided a track by track summary of each song and his thoughts on how this came about in a lavish booklet. Finally credit goes to Mr. Paul Sinclair who compiled this excellent collection and Cherry Red Records for agreeing to release it. Definitely worth purchasing!

A good double CD featuring some of the best hits and mixes. there isn't really new mixes on here for the ardent fan but it is a good purchase if you liked the Thompson Twins and just want to get something more than 'hits' CD. Apart from 'Nothing Common' there is nothing beyond the 'Here's to Future Days' album, this release focuses on 'Sidekick', 'Gap' and 'Future Days' which is a shame as there were some good tracks on the subsequent albums but perhaps the popularity of the later albums being not so great has resulted in this being more of a commercial package. Still a good buy and I bought it even though I have other 12" CD collections and the double disc re-releases featuring the remixes and B-sides.

Although most of these mixes have appeared on Edsel's 2cd remasters of the albums this dare i say it is still worth owning for six mixes that have not previously been available on cd. Cherry Pop has done as good as job as Edsel did on the sleeve notes and general presentation including an interview with Tom Bailey. It's great that he is back playing the Twins music live again and hope to catch one of his dates in 2015.
