5.0 out of 5 stars Good for old and new! Love this album, 18 Sep 2012
This review is from: The Collection (Audio CD)
Yazoo: The Collection grabbed me as soon as I saw the cover - such a classic shot of Vince and Alison and the art is beautiful.

The collection covers everything you'd expect in a 2CD retrospective of the band and with not many albums to choose from, the remixes and alt versions work really really well.

I really love the last track on CD 1 - the 1990 mix of Only You with strings and piano! One of my favorites and I've been looking for ages for it!

I'm no massive fan, but got through these 2 CD's with a huge smile on my face and it really took me back! Again, for 5 it's a must have and a great buy.

Now we know why the earlier advertised "Essential Yazoo" single disc never actually materialised, someone at the record company had the good vision to make this a double set. As with the Beloved double from a year or two back, this essentially covers nearly all their album tracks ("I before E" being an obvious casualty, but that track is probably just too experimental for a 'Best Of'). As such those tracks, plus the original 12" versions selected, are all 2008 Remasters from "In Your Room". As I didn't buy that set this is a great compilation, and some of the track sequencing is inspired, as they had more material to choose from. Several slower/bluesy tracks sit adjacent, whilst the same is true of the poppier stuff.

It's nice to have the original 7" of "Situation" as track 2, as it was a single in its own right in the US, and both US 12" sides are also present here. Some of the newere remixes work better than others, but as they are all on CD2 you can choose to include or exclude at will. Some are quite challenging, like "Ode To Boy", but worth perservering with, whilst some are quite commercial. As I'd purchased the original Reconnected 12" vinyl EP it was initially a bit annoying all 4 tracks are included, but having listened to the 2CDs their inclusion is worthwhile, and I will still keep hold of the vinyl!

Quite nice liner notes, short and sweet, and a great cover image choice/treatment make this budget set very strong indeed, and great value. The inclusion of most original 12" mixes, plus b-sides like "Situation" and "State Farm", work brilliantly.

This is a great Music Club Deluxe offering, and makes up for the same label's recent Blancmange iffy sound quality.

An absolutely stonking collection of tunes from one of the best bands to come out of the 80's. Moyet's voice combined with Clarke's synth riffs make for some unforgettable songs. Top notch music at a bargain price, thoroughly recommended.

So much retro gold from the duo; 2 CDs for the price of 6 pints of milk! Bring back the 80's.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is how Alison Moyet became famous, 1 Aug 2013

Simply a brilliant album. Alison Moyet's deep rich voice may seem to be suited to jazz or classical signing, but in Yazoo she teamed up with a simple electropop keyboard accompanyment to create one of the classic sounds of the1980s.

Bought this as a gift for my husband. He had a lot of their music on vinyl and having no turntable to be able to play them, I decided to purchase this cd for him. He is loving the music and takes him back to the 80's.
