5.0 out of 5 stars not blondie, but almost, 13 Nov 2003
This review is from: Most Of All - The Best Of (Audio CD)
Unfortunatly Debbie never reached the same dizzying heights with her solo career as she did with Blondie. This I think is a real shame because depending on what i'm in the mood for, I sometimes find myself prefering to listen to her solo work.
'Most of all the best of' is the best and most comprehensive collection of Debbies solo efforts that I have found and contains some very good tracks.
The only two that are particularly well known are 'French Kissing in the USA' and 'I want That Man', which was again made popular when it was remixed recently. Both of these are great dance tracks and good to sing along to but are by no means the only good songs off of the album. 'Backfired' and 'The Jam Was Moving' both done while she was still in Blondie, are extremly funky tunes and the excellent 'Free to Fall' is one of my favourite power ballads. The strange collaboration with Iggy Pop, 'Well Did You Evah' is also great and the delightful 'Strike Me Pink' is worth listening to for the intro alone.
To be fair the entire album does not reach this high standard, especially if you compare it to a Blondie best of/greatest hits, but there are certainly no bad songs on it, even if there are a few weaker ones.
I think the album would have been stronger if it included a few more tracks that are perhaps just as well known as some that were included. Examples of these might be the moody 'Now I Know You Know' and the inspirational 'End of the Run'. However 'Most of All' is a very strong album that would appeal to long time Blondie fans as well as general fans of 80's music. Debbie Harry is deffinatly the "queen of the USA"!

How is 'Free To Fall' a ballad. 'Strike Me Pink' is a ballad. As for the other tracks you mention that you feel could be on this, why would they be? This supposed to collect all the singles between 1981-1993 she did, and it does that perfectly. Admittedly a couple of albums tracks are shown to extend the playing time, but I wouldn't be expecting the titles you said, nor would many I'd say.
