5.0 out of 5 stars Just awesome, 24 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ultimate Crisis (Audio CD)
When people have asked me about injustices in the music industry, one of the first examples I cited was the failure of the group China Crisis to be an absolutely massive worldwide success. As I listen to this compilation now, many years after these songs were first released, I can't help wondering what went wrong with the marketing of the band by Virgin, their record company. They had such talent and their way with a melody and lyric put them head and shoulders above so many of their rivals. I won't go into every song here, but needless to say the omissions are as glaring as the choices but what can you do when you limit yourself to just a 2 CD Best Of. (True justice can only be served by buying their entire back catalogue).

This compilation should be made to be a compulsary purchase and if you're reading this and know little about the band, then jump in now and treat yourself. For well under a fiver you get some of the best music that came out of the 1980s. Fact!

Absolutely full marks to Demon Music, who put this album together and at such a modest price too.
