4.0 out of 5 stars They're only human, 19 May 2009
This review is from: Original Remixes and Rarities (Audio CD)
Although this collection of remixes from Sheffield's synth-pop pioneers is by no means indispensable, it is still a strong set of Human League favourites, most of which are not on any of their previous albums in these forms. 'Being Boiled' is the lighter and poppier original version (I prefer the edgier and more experimental single version); 'Non-Stop' is a bit Euro-Disco and for me the weakest song on the CD; and the full-length version of 'Hard Times' is as fresh as I remember it being, 27 years ago.
Unless you were an avid collector of 12" records in the 1980s (and I obviously wasn't avid enough!) then it's a timely reminder of how important Phil Oakey and co. were to pop music, and good to be able to have all these songs on one CD.
