This album will do for me!
on 27 July 2007
As I only knew and purchased this CD for two songs by Howard Jones: the big pop hit 'What Is Love?' and the very catchy 'Everlasting Love', I can't really say if this compilation does live up to the title 'The Platinum Collection', although judging by other reviewers, and a little bit of research I've carried out - it doesn't. After doing my homework I found that this album still does include some of his hits, including the aforementioned which were always real favourites of mine.
For me, I enjoyed this collection a lot and was able to find more great songs that I wasn't familiar with as a result. It's mostly quite brilliant pop/rock music that was very typical of the 1980s, and Howard Jones is certainly a very talented singer and songwriter. So, this is good CD to introduce someone to Howard's music, but If you are looking for a definitive hits collection, you need to find another album. But at this price, and with a generous 18 tracks - I can't complain about 'The Platinum Collection'.
