5.0 out of 5 stars THE QUEENS OF POP!
Any lover of 80's music will remember the fantastic Appleby sisters that stormed the charts with the chart toppers 'Showing Out (get fresh At The Weekend)','Respectable','F.L.M' and 'Thats the way it is' (the title of this album) it's about time that EMI released a new greatest hits album for the girls! This cd contains the four singles plus the fantastic 'Don't...

5.0 out of 5 stars THE QUEENS OF POP!, 5 Oct 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: That's the Way It Is - The Best Of (Audio CD)
Any lover of 80's music will remember the fantastic Appleby sisters that stormed the charts with the chart toppers 'Showing Out (get fresh At The Weekend)','Respectable','F.L.M' and 'Thats the way it is' (the title of this album) it's about time that EMI released a new greatest hits album for the girls! This cd contains the four singles plus the fantastic 'Don't Worry','G.L.A.D' and 'Mama' which released by Kim as solo singles after Mel's death in 1990.This cd is a MUST buy and a true gem to any fan of Mel and Kim,it's about time EMI released a greatest hits album of Kim's solo work as she had a second album 'Breakaway' that was never released here in the U.K but WAS released it Europe,this cd containd fantastic tracks such as 'Strong Love','Light of the world','I'm not your property' and 'Loving you boy' so come on EMI release a Kim album - perhaps with the kim House stormer 'Free Spirit' on it! anyhow,if you Love Mel and Kim you'll LOVE this cd!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice 80s retrospective from the Appleby sisters, 20 Oct 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: That's the Way It Is - The Best Of (Audio CD)
This CD features every song officially released by the 80s dance sister duo Mel & Kim (except for the Mel & Kim Megamix released on single in early 1990). Different from the other best of album released by the sisters, this cd also features some of Kim Appleby's solo chart hits. Unfortunately it overlooks her lower charting singles, "If You Cared" (No. 44, 1991), "Light Of The World" (No. 41, 1993), "Breakaway" (No. 56, 1993) and "Free Spirit" (No. 51, 1994) and instead fills up the album with unnecessary remixes of "Respectable", "F.L.M." and "Don't Worry". Still a great buy if you loved the dance music a la Stock/Aitken/Waterman from the late 80s.

2.0 out of 5 stars Spoiled by careless track fade-outs., 18 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: That's the Way It Is - The Best Of (Audio CD)
I was really enjoying this CD (love 'That's the way it is') but then I noticed a couple of the tracks (not the hits) had careless remastering where the track is cut off abruptly, one track even fades out but then squiggles back into earshot (and it is NOT deliberate).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD But...., 12 Oct 2012
This review is from: That's the Way It Is - The Best Of (Audio CD)
I think Mel & Kim's output with SAW was amongst their best. This CD is great in as much as it also includes some of Kim's solo recordings, however, in addition to this release, it's also well worth checking out the re-release of FLM for some further Mel & Kim gems.

Brilliant blast from the past. Funky upbeats and classic ballads delivered delightfully by one of the best girl duos of the era. Even makes me want to get up and boogie on down again,lol! Happy days indeed.

I have always loved Mel and Kim from been a small child, so to still be a fan now means this CD must be good becuase I have the attention span of a gold fish
