Biography

Over the years, the Pretenders became a vehicle for guitarist/vocalist Chrissie Hynde's songwriting, yet it was a full-fledged band when it was formed in the late '70s. With their initial records, the group crossed the bridge between punk/new wave and Top 40 pop more than any other band, recording a series of hard, spiky singles that were also melodic and immediately accessible.

The Pretenders are probably the most enduring and ignored bands from the 70s.alot of people dont even realise that they are still going strong.from their 1st album up until Viva El Amor most of their singles are included on this album and all of their biggest hits are here.This is a great album with so many different styles your never quite sure what decade you are in.

I have always been a "sort-of" fan of The Pretenders. Loved their stuff on the radio, bought a couple of lps early on, the odd single now and again, a tape in a cut-out bin but I was by no means a completist. This minidisc pulls together all their best work--large and small--and puts it together in one convenient package. I'm sure more rabid fans will argue about songs that were left off but no one can argue with the songs that are present. Just an excellent package for home, automobile or play.

as other reviewers mentioned, the pretenders' 'greatest hits' is just an updated version of 'the singles' collection, issued in the 80s. owners of the latter will just find this a waste of money, unless you're willing to spend around £10 on a few extras.
'greatest hits', however, is the perfect album for those wanting to 'get into' this brilliant band. it ranges from the early days with 'brass in pocket', through their most successful period in the 80s, and right up the the latest album with 'human'.
i bought 'greatest hits' having purchased the self-titled debut lp and playing it non-stop for almost a month (and then some). i thought it would never happen, but it did. slowly, i began to grow a little tired of hearing the same 12 tracks over and over.
so, the search was on for another pretenders cd. but which one to get? looking at reviews for the various other albums, all of them seemed to be saying the same thing: "most of the tracks are okay, some are really quite good, but- they'll never be as good as they were on the debut."
'greatest hits' has the perfect balance of old and new, of raunchy rock, up-tempo pop/rock fusions, tender slow songs, and even a power-ballad or two, namely the anthemic 'i'll stand by you'. though it's probably best to forget the dodgy and perhaps even embarrassing collaboration efforts, notably 'breakfast in bed'. this is also a great album for those in my previous situation, those who want more pretenders but don't want entire albums of perhaps not-so-good tracks.

The Pretenters were and are, an under rated band. At their best, they produced classics like "Hymn To Her", "2000 miles", "Back on the chain gang", "Kid", "Talk of the Town", to name, but a few. If Chrissie Hyde made an album of nursery rymes , it would be a classic. They are 20 great songs on this collection. This band leaves many other bands so far behind. The bands more recent material is good, Chrissie Hyde's voice, always superb. If you alreay own 1987's "The Singles" collection - this collection will be a waste of money. Aldough, the bands output during the1990's was impressive - the majority of the tracks on this collection are on the previous record. Still, "stand by me" & "Human" are great. This is a great collection. There are songs on this record, for everyone - no metter if you are into pop or rock - there is something here for all. I can't recommend, this collection or band highly enough

I was searching for a copy of a single Pretenders track which appears on this album. I can't say I'm a big fan of the band but it was surprising just how many tracks I actually knew and liked. So after a couple of plays through I've ended up with a really listenable album which I wasn't expecting.

The album is great. Case was fairly battered, otherwise it'd be four stars.
