This ABC compilation improves on their earlier 'Absolutely ABC' disc in that the songs are remastered and the funky 'Vanity Kills' and the less important and rather pedestrian 'The Real Thing' are both here, being the only 2 singles left off that 1989 package, making all the 80s singles available on the same CD for the first time ever, irrespecitve of their chart-placings-which means their worst track, the sickly and dull 'Ocean Blue' hasn't been lopped off sadly. The other gripe is that for a hits album done in 2001, it only adds one 90s single 'Peace And Tranquility'-a real shame and almost a real cheat-especially as both 'Skyscraping' and 'Love Conquers All' are worthy additions at least. The last song 'Blame' I can't work out-there's no record of it being a single, but if it isn't, why's it on here? Apart from these annyoing drawbacks, this is a definite improvement on 'Absolutely' and worth the money of the cheap slidepack I reserved, having retired the older, uneeded one.
