Originally dismissed as a boy band, a-ha has defied all expectations by forging a successful career spanning over 25 years and selling 36 million records all over the world. This album demonstrates their powerful range from their world smashing hits like 'Take on Me', to their soul-touching ballads like 'Crying in the Rain' and my personal favorite 'Velvet' ( from the 'One Night at McCools' film soundtrack). A special mention has to go to rockier songs like 'Dark is the Night For All', and 'Move to Memphis' - the latter featuring a superb keyboard solo from Magne Furuholmen, slightly reminiscent of the Doors maestro Ray Manzarek. Guitarist Paul Waaktaar-Savoy adds his lyrical poetry to most of the songs, bringing them to life with a visual panache, that helps tell a cinematic story on songs such as the haunting 'Hunting High and Low' .Of course, star of the whole enterprise is the lead singer Morten Harket - in my view the greatest voice to have emerged on the modern pop scene since the late Freddie Mercury. Harket is a remarkable singer - a falsetto force of nature that is a wonder to listen to. His biggest claim to fame is that influential video - Take on Me - something that will go down in pop history as a truly defining moment. However, few know that he holds a world record for holding a single note during a song - an amazing 20.2 seconds on the sublime 'Summer Moved On.' (2:50 - 3:10) Wow! All the songs I've mentioned are on this brilliant collection; crisply re-mastered to perfection. Just listen to the wonderful 'The Sun Always Shines on T.V',for example. This is true pop at it's best. One of the best songs ever written.. A-Ha - why retire when you have all this ?
