Biography

Kim Wilde. Mention her name and people’s eyes light up. The blonde singer with the siren voice is after all one of pop music's most dazzling stars. For years she has held the record as England’s most successful female pop star ever. The French consider her the “Brigitte Bardot of Rock” and her German fans still venerate her as the sexiest glamour girl to come out of ... Read more in Amazon's Kim Wilde Store

For everyone who never bothered to see beyond the blonde bombshell image, Kim Wilde ruled the charts with an unassuming, totally infectious, unpretentious, hook-filled, melody-strong bunch of songs that doesn't even show her at her true worth as, not only are many decent singles cut on this collection, but many of her great tunes (songs often at major variance with the ones picked for singles) annoyingly stayed on the albums. Plus sadly there's a whole bunch of singles not on here-'The Touch', 'House Of Salome', 'Hey Mister Heartache', 'Say You Really Want Me', 'It's Here' etc. But no one could be disappointed by the quality of the material on offer.

From the opening (if overrated ditty) 'Kids In America' onwards each blazes a trail with each displaying a totally different sound and style, but not one losing any important ingredient that characterises her. 'Chequered Love' rocks you round the nightclub, dramatic 'View From A Bridge's' edgy, tinkling hooks distract from the depressive lyrics, 'Child Come Away' send shivers through it's folk-style arrangements, 'Love Blonde' sizzles, the energetic pounding of 'You Keep Me Hangin'On' and 'Rage To Love' would fill a stadium, while aggressive numbers like 'Never Trust A Stranger' and 'The Second Time' put the weak accusation to bed at once she was ever just a little pop princess tuning out mush for the masses. Nowhere makes that more clear than the daring 'Cambodia' with its complete opposition to a run-of-the-mill pop song setup.

There's barely any 90s stuff on here-just the rousing and symbolic 'Love Is Holy' and crisp remake of 'If I Can't Have You' but if anything this wonderful yet clipped and fractured collection so make you run out and get all those Kim albums now.

5.0 out of 5 stars KIM WILDE'S GREATEST HITS 10 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
"The Singles Collection" is somewhat a misleading title of this album, since it doesn't contain ALL of Kim Wilde's singles. A better title would be "Greatest Hits", since that is what this album contains; ALL of Kim Wilde's greatest hits in the period 1981-1993. They're all here; "Kids In America", "Cambodia", "You Keep Me Hanging On", "You Came" and all the other major hits that made Kim Wilde a star in Europe.
For the American public this may seem a bit odd, since Wilde only charted five singles on the Billboard Hot 100, four of which are included here; "Kids In America" "The Second Time", aka "Go For it" in America, "You Keep Me Hanging On" and "You Came". But in Europe, all the songs on this album were major hits and well known. Minor hits like "Say You Really Want Me" and "It's Here" are not included here (nor do they belong here).
Ironically, Kim Wilde never had another major hit after this album was released in 1993, so this is still THE album to get if you're looking for a set of Kim Wilde's greatest hits.
Also, Wilde's biggest hits are also her best songs, so this album is excellent from start to finish!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kim Wylde at her best 14 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All Kim Wildes greatest hits, they are not all my cup of tea to be fair but the five I do like most (Kids In America, Chequered Love, Four Letter Word, You Came, You Keep Me Hanging On) are on there and I love them so cannot grumble at this album.
