5.0 out of 5 stars Glam wasn't all good or cool
Very good mix of what glam was all about. Note that it is a Glam ROCK album and as such doesn't have too much of the over sugary nonsense of the time. It does however present much of the diverse, odd, forgotten, and fondly remembered nonsense of the time. Bejeezus, the Runaways were good and you may be forced to admit that David Essex had his moments. You may decide...

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been so much better?
Whilst this is a fair compilation classing it as the 'best ever' is considered to be mis-representation! Where is Gary Glitter (regardless of what he has allegedly done. Wiping him out of history is churlish), The Bay City Rollers and probably Mungo Jerry (Alright, Alright, Alright), Sailor (Glass Of Champagne) and last but not least Cockney Rebel (Judy Teen) plus New...

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been so much better?, 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Best Glam Rock Album Ever (Audio CD)
Whilst this is a fair compilation classing it as the 'best ever' is considered to be mis-representation! Where is Gary Glitter (regardless of what he has allegedly done. Wiping him out of history is churlish), The Bay City Rollers and probably Mungo Jerry (Alright, Alright, Alright), Sailor (Glass Of Champagne) and last but not least Cockney Rebel (Judy Teen) plus New York Dolls (Looking For A Kiss)? I'll stop now as the list is exhaustive, but you get the idea. With just a little thought this really could have been what it says on the tin. One bright note though - Eno (Seven Deadly Finns) is included, surely this is a long lost and forgotten gem? This whole series of best ever compilation CD's feel as if they have been shoddily put together by people who did not have a clue? 'The Best Punk Anthems Ever' is another example! I did warn you.....

It does however present much of the diverse, odd, forgotten, and fondly remembered nonsense of the time. Bejeezus, the Runaways were good and you may be forced to admit that David Essex had his moments. You may decide to check out other stuff by Cockney Rebel, but trust me, If you get this you won't need any more Golden Earring recordings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Document Of An Era, 13 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Best Glam Rock Album Ever (Audio CD)
No "Sugar Baby Love", no "I Love You Love Me Love", no "Come Up And See Me (Make Me Smile)", no "The Bump", and not even a "Shang-A-Lang". Instead, we get THREE T.Rex songs and not even "Metal Guru" at that!
Of the many "The Best Album In The World" compilations out there, this one got to be one of the most disappointing in the series.
We're force fed awfulness a la The Faces' "Stay With Me" (Glam Rock? I think not. More like 2nd rate Stones) and Steve Harley's self-indulgent (to say the least) "Sebastian". Seemingly, as well, the compilers wanted to re-write history in light of Gary Glitter's child porn conviction and wrote him out of the picture completely.
Very strange and utterly & absolutely unsatisfying. Go for that double German ("Dynamite" was it?) import instead. Much more eclectic and not nearly as snobbish as this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars grr, 11 Dec 2007

This review is from: Best Glam Rock Album Ever (Audio CD)
How can you possibly have a GLAM record without Gary Glitter? Pretending he doesn't exist isnt gonna make his influence go away. This is childish.
