3.0 out of 5 stars you'd better shop around...., 19 Feb. 2012
This review is from: The Singles (Audio CD)
..with apologies to Smokey Robinson. I have no doubt about the quality of the songs on this compilation. I guess it's designed to be an introduction to Goldfrapp, but I thought it worth pointing out that at the moment one can buy the first four albums by Goldfrapp on Amazon for the grand total of £5.04, if you're not bothered about buying used copies. So you'll get far more music, and in its original context, for not much more than half the new price. Just a thought....

Some of us are bothered about buying used copies.

Anyway, picked a new copy up on Play.com for £3.99.

Horses for courses, I suppose, but for those on a tight budget like me it's a good option.

Really? Including delivery? That's pretty good going! Can't beat a shiny new cd though.

This compilation is utterly pointless without the videos.

Strange I thought this was a review of a CD??
I ve always found a video distracting when I'm driving!
I LISTEN to CDs.
This comment by Derbone is to borrow his expression
'Utterly pointless' is an apt word to describe his comment.
If you want to see the videos buy a DVD?
Colin Driver's orginal comment is relevant!
AND I took JMC's advice (see comments above) and also got it for a bargain £3.99

You are totally missing MY point. This IS a review on the release of Goldfrapp's "best of" which is not very satisfying for me as a fan. I have every right to criticize it the way I like. I'm not talking about the music here, because it's undisputedly great music. But I've already got all the albums and cd singles, that's why a compilation containing only the songs I already own is UTTERLY POINTLESS F O R M E.
(Of course, the music videos should be on an ACCOMPANYING DVD, not on the CD, but that's my point, there should BE a DVD in a deluxe version of this release - "if you want the videos, buy the DVD" - wasn't that just what my comment was about? The fact that THERE ISN'T A DVD! Do you need it to be written out in detail to understand a comment? Hello, keep up!!)
Goldfrapp are wrapping up their relationship with EMI. The fans would have deserved not only a cd compilation, but also a video collection to go along. Other artists have done it before.
Please keep away from your conceited smarta** comments on other people's opinions...and by the way, I'm glad that you won't be watching videos while driving. 'Shows you are not a total idiot after all.

Hahaha this made me laugh. Your so-called point was missed by everyone, since you didn't make it in your first post! You note that you are not talking about the music...but perhaps you should be since this is an audio CD and as you say, not a DVD. Sounds to me like your comment should be directed at EMI, not Amazon.
