This CD joined my collection on the strength of the two big hits from the eighties, "We Built..." and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" - and what chunky power-pop songs they are, to be sure. OK, so "We Built" won the award for worst pop lyrics in a recent poll ("Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio..." Hmmmm, yesssss), but surely that's not the point. Starship weren't trying to encapsulate anything profound in that song, merely the atmosphere of a west-coast city with a rock music radio station - and that they succeeded in doing splendidly, coupling a superb bassline with a pure power-pop chorus. "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" is in similar musical territory, and features one of the chunkiest key-changes to grace popular music (Celine Dion could learn a thing or two from that!).
However, it's the latter part of the CD that pulls out the biggest surprises. Suddenly there's track after track of pure, 100% enjoyable eighties L.A. "poodle-perm" metal. This stuff is priceless! Some people might think it was naff, but it can't be denied that it's enormous fun. Put on that poodle wig, reach for the air guitar and - in the immortal words of the late, great Dave Nice - let's rock!

I bought this album on a whim, mainly for the great track 'Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now' and have been very pleasantly suprised by all the other tracks on this album. I agree with previous reviewers, this is truly great music which may verge on the cheesy side at times, but is brilliantly done and wholly irresistible.

This is an excellent slice of 80s rock and roll, and well worth the money!

Well, what can I say... Starship are definetely one of the greatest ever bands in my opinion. They sum up everything about 80s rock. This CD, they're best of, is absolutely fantastic to listen to. Two of the hits, "We Built This City" and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" (from the film 'Mannequin') prove that this CD is worth every penny.

Classic Stuff here, not a bad song on it.
Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now, Hearts of the World and Good Heart are my personal favourites, but if you're looking for a real hard rock song, Rock Myself to Sleep will fulfill your needs.
Overall, excellent album for anyone who likes good music!

If you like melodic/pop rock - buy this. Superb performances from the last incarnation of the Jeferson Airplane/Jeferson Starship/Starship band lineups. The songs are all taken from the few Starship albums of the 80s, except for 'Layin it on the Line', 'Jane' and 'Find your way Back', which come from Jeferson Starship albums of the early 80's. Most people will remember 'We Built this City' and 'Nothings going to Stop Us Now', but the band did so much more that those 2 songs. This record showcases the incredible vocal talents of Mickey Thomas (who never gets the full credit he deserves). The more famous (but less talented) Grace Slick features on some of the tracks (including the famous two), but it's Mickey's brilliant voice that just grabs your ear and holds it. Great creamy and melodic guitar work from Craig Chaquico.

Classic "soft" American rock, with great tunes from 80's and early 90's. If you like songs like Journey's "Don't stop believin'" then this is right up your street...

However, I bought both the "digital" MP3 and CD versions of the album at the same time. Turns out the MP3 version is a re-recording of the Starship songs, and the CD contains the original versions. The CD has the songs in different order and there are 17 tracks on the CD, only 14 on the digital version.

Clearly a mix up at the Amazon end, but if you buy, I'd suggest you buy the CD version you get the original, better (in my view!) versions of the songs. Unless of course you happened to want both versions for the same price!

Enjoy!

NOT THE ORIGINAL RECORDINGS!!! These are re-recorded by (I'm guessing) members of the original band and sound quite similar but the songs here are NOT the same versions as on the albums. I only found out after I bought the CD and used the Autorip service and heard the difference. Thankfully the Amazon team gave me a full refund and were very helpful.
