This compilation has been rereleased, it seems, as a taster for the newly-remastered, bonus-tracked, rare-photos-packed, deluxe-packaged new editions of "Dirk Wears White Sox", "Kings Of The Wild Frontier" and "Prince Charming" which are reportedly heading our way in the near future, as well as another announcement of an even better Ants DVD (the DVD edition of AntVideo never arrived, so here's hoping this time...).
For friends who merely knew (but loved) the megahits such as "Antmusic", Stand & Deliver! and Goody Two-Shoes, this is an excellent way to provide them with their own copy of these tunes and at the same time open their eyes to almost two full decades of the hits, near-misses and shouldabeens which peppered Adam's whole recording career.
Any sense of chronology has gone out of the window here, but the track order flows well, and it's pleasing to note some of the subtle choices between versions of songs included. Once again we get the 1980 Pirroni-powered versions of "Cartrouble" and "Kick!", as well as the 1982 revamp of "Friends", in preference to their "Dirk Wears White Sox"-era original readings (as found variously, and in various shapes, on the original Do-It release of DWWS and their later cash-in releases "The B-Sides" and "Antmusic EP"). Once again we get the revised, softened version of "Deutscher Girls" (deleting the highly provocative "Nazi" lyric from the verses) but again no sign of the excellent B-side from that EG/Polydor single, "Plastic Surgery", the other Ants contribution to the soundtrack album for Derek Jarman's "Jubilee" (itself unavailable commercially on CD apart from a limited US release). But on the other hand, it's very good news to see the 7" single mixes/edits of "Goody Two-Shoes" and "Stand And Deliver!

4.0 out of 5 stars Music to get dressed to. 25 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
22 of the Renaissance rocker's hits are compiled on this excellent CD, spanning an incredible 16 years. The songs themselves are quite varied ranging from pop (Puss 'n' Boots, 'Can't Set Rules About Love' and 'Room At The Top') to punk ('Car Trouble,' 'Kick' and 'Zerox.') Unlike other 'Best of' CDs, where you get a few well known tracks and then complete rubbish (see 'The Very Best of Dexy's Midnight Runners'), nearly all of the songs are great, with only a few bum songs like 'Apollo 9.' Of course, the classic 'Stand and Deliver' is the opening track, and the rallying drums and thrashing guitars help you wake up in the morning and face the day with a certain panache, much like Mr Ant himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prince Charming Lives! 28 July 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I grew up in the 80's and loved Adam And The Ants, and this collection is quite frankly a must have for anyone of a certain age. Buy it, sing along, tap your feet and remember a time when you could wear all the contents of your makeup bag at once.

There have been a fair few Adam Ant collections - after all he was a 'hit machine' for the first half of the 80s and more famous than many subsequent chart acts (not to mention far more talented). What I loved about Adam and the Ants was the whole package - music, image, attitude, and style were all superb, and he could teach today's drearily po-faced performers a thing or two (thank goodness for La Roux).
The tracks here are in no particular chronological order, but you get two real gems to kick off with: The birth of the 'Dandy Highwayman' in the brilliant 'Stand and Deliver', followed by the percussive anthem and breakthrough hit 'Kings of the Wild Frontier'. 'Dog Eat Dog' harks back to the band's punk origins, whilst 'Wonderful' is the nearest they get to a ballad and is not as dire as many would suggest. Adam's 1989 comeback hit 'Room at the Top' sees him bowing out in style, and the ubiquitous 'Prince Charming' reminds faithful ants that 'ridicule is indeed nothing to be scared of'! There are 16 more slices of pop excellence on the disc, with the understated 'Can't Set Rules about Love' and frankly bonkers 'Apollo 9' also warranting specfic mention.

So, dust off your tricorn hat, daub the war paint on your face, and wallow in 22 tracks of majestic pop perfection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooray for the 80's!! 3 Dec 1999
Format:Audio CD
I am overjoyed to be writing a review for this album! And, I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one having a good old 80's flashback, and what better album to do it with? There's a little something for everyone on this CD, for those who only remember the hits (Prince Charming, Stand and Deliver) to the not so well know B sides (Young Parisians, Friends) and even those solo hits (Wonderful). It's good to see that fine music can still be appreciated!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The genius has lasted longer than the beauty. 25 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Compilations and "Best of" albums are usually just record company cynicism rising to the surface and trying, usually successfully, to goad the innocent fan into parting with his/her money. If you only buy one compilation this lifetime, then you will not find better than this. Spanning well over a decade, and a plethora of styles, this album is guaranteed to incite foot-tapping and humming along from even the most staunch 80s-phobic amongst you. Perhaps the only real complaint is that most of the tracks have been heard before too many times; one or two more album tracks, or surprises, would have been welcome, to satisfy everybody. Yet you can't have it all, and for anybody who is in no way a collector, or even those too young to remember the originals, this is a fantastic introduction to one of the eighties true pop-stars. Adam, did I tell you you're wonderful...?
