'Are You Ready' was originally released on vinyl and cassette back in 1982 at the height of the band's success and includes two of their number one singles, 'Land of Make Believe' and 'My Camera Never Lies'. It was released on CD for the first time in 2000 following a long campaign by the fans. This CD version includes two previously un-released tracks: their version of Tina Turner's 'What's Love Got To Do With It' and the excellent 12" version of the Christmas 1983 single 'Rules of the Game'. The 12" version of 'When We Were Young' is also included, the first time this version has been available on CD. 'Are You Ready' also includes what I think is probably the best track Bucks Fizz ever recorded, 'Easy Love', which was never released as a single in the UK (why not?!), although it was in Europe. This really is Bucks Fizz at their very best and I would highly recommend this CD to anyone who has enjoyed the band's 'Greatest Hits' albums.

The curse of the 'difficult second album' didn't actually materialise for Bucks Fizz. Rather than simply take up where their debut left off, they took several steps up the evolutionary ladder and produced some of the finest work of their career. The no.1 singles, "The Land Of Make-Believe" and its superior follow-up, "My Camera Never Lies," emphatically identified the group as a pop force to be reckoned with. And, crucially, the rest of the album met equally high standards. This was a stylistic giant step forward and the set was rich in potential hits. "Now Those Days Are Gone," with its intricate harmonies and graceful arrangement showed that there was a more adult edge to their sound and it became one of the group's best loved singles. The shimmering disco track, "Easy Love," the excellent ballad "Love Dies Hard" and the smart bounce of "20th Century Hero" could easily have made waves in the singles chart too. Only the title-track and "Another Night" harked back to the fluffiness of their first album. Bucks Fizz had moved on in a very determined fashion. None of the eight bonus tracks lovingly tagged on to this release really challenge the quality of the original album - although "Taking Me Higher," a B-side written by the band, could well have justified its place as an 11th track on the original release.

Following my campaign on the Official Bucks Fizz Web Site, I managed to get BMG to agree to this release. Having been involved in this project from the offset, I for one am proud of the final result.
This truly is the Cream of Bucks Fizz. Recorded at the height of their career, it features two number one singles together with the top ten ballad, 'Now Those Days Are Gone'. Also featured are two previously unreleased tracks including the 12" version of the single, 'Rules Of The Game' which has been sought by Fizz Fans for years.
For continuity, two B-Sides from the number one singles are also featured here however it's a shame that the B-Side 'Takin Me Higher' has not been kept on Master Tape, otherwise it would have also been included. The classic song, 'When We Were Young' in it's extended form is also here, being one of the fans most popular choices. Although this should have appeared on perhaps a later release, these are not guaranteed and it would have been a shame to miss this perhaps 'one off' opportunity.
All in all, this album is full of wonderful memories for anyone who bought it back in 1982. Even if you didn't buy it back then, this is still a good choice when purchasing a Bucks Fizz CD. There are too many 'Greatest Hits' CD's on the market which although are good buys, they still don't give you a taste of the groups versatility and professionalism on their album tracks.
It used to be 'NOT COOL' to like Bucks Fizz, but those days have gone now and I suggest you swallow you're pride and purchase this legendary album.

Face it, it was never cool to like Bucks Fizz. But cool be damned - all it ever does is hamper enjoyment. "Are You Ready" really is, as the sleeve notes suggest, Bucks Fizz at their best. Following the so-so début album, this collection pushed all the right buttons, including as it does, three gems of singles in "My Camera Never Lies", "Now Those Days Are Gone" and "The Land Of Make Believe". From Andy Hill's zingy production, to the band's great harmonies, to - admit it - darn good songs, this album works very well. True, the title track is not their finest moment but what about gems like the shimmering disco of "Easy Love"? Or the ballad Ronan Keating would give a testicle for, "Love Dies Hard"? Or the bouncy "20th Century Hero"... And none of these were even singles! ! If you like Steps or, say, 5ive (anyone notice the similarity between the guitars on "My Camera..." and "Keep On Movin'"?) you'll probably enjoy this.
The bonus tracks are nice to have and will satisfy the überfans (although,admittedly, the B-sides included actually sound like mere B-sides, unlike, say, "Taking Me Higher" - which should be here - or "When The Love Has Gone"). Even if Tina Turner hadn't gazumped their take on "What's Love Got To Do With It", I doubt this stodgy recording would have made it to the final cut of the excellent "I Hear Talk" album for which it was recorded. I'm pleased to finally have the 12" of "When We Were Young" on CD but it makes me worry that BMG will not re-issue the rest of the back catcalogue (because this track should really appear on "Hand Cut"). As for the cover...
