I grew up listening to Blondie and to find this album on CD, thus replacing my old vinyl copy, was a real treat. Each track on here is a gift in its own right. From disco-driven "Heart of Glass" to heart-thumping "Union City Blues", sneering (yet insecure) "Rip Her To Shreds" and timeless, erotic "Atomic" this Best Of ... album is a masterpiece. It is much better than the later released "Atomic - Best of Blondie" because it has the full versions of "The Tide is High", "Rapture" and "Atomic" and dispenses with the pointless 3 remixes of the latter track.
You will not need to use the "skip" button on your CD player when playing this timeless album.

When I was young, I loved Blondie but never owned any Blondie records. This CD contains all the classics I remember from years ago along with some great songs I was unfamiliar with. I'm no Blondie expert, so I can't comment on what should and should not have been included in a greatest hits CD. All I know is that each of these songs works quite well for me. The whole album has a terrific flow to it, alternating between several different styles of music--new wave, punk, disco, reggae, rap, you name it. Blondie was a trailblazer who redeemed the music of the 70s and paved the way for the great music of the 80s, 90s, present, and future. The variety and freshness of Blondie's musical stylings ensure the group's longevity and influence indefinitely.
"The Tide is High" has a reggae-type sound and evokes a real "island" feel; this song actually ranks as my favorite song on the CD. Of course, "Heart of Glass," "Rapture," "One Way or Another," and "Call Me" are terrific songs I never forgot over the years. "Rapture" actually introduced rap music to my ears--that ending rap was like nothing I had ever heard before; everyone I knew loved that bit about the man from Mars and the great guitar riffs at the end. The "Rapture" video is also one of the very first videos I ever remember seeing. "Hanging on the Telephone" has a driving rhythm that makes it impossible for you to sit still as you listen. "Sunday Girl" is a fast-paced, fun song with a strong beat and great vocals (including the French verse), as is "Dreaming." "(I'm Always Touched By Your) Presence Dear" is another surprisingly good gem, featuring a slightly softer side of Blondie. I basically love every single song on this album; Blondie's music has not lost a bit of originality, brashness, or power over the years, nor has the enjoyment I receive from listening to it diminished one single bit.

The Best of Blondie (released in the mid-80s) is still the finest Blondie compilation currently on the market (although now tricky to get hold of)and is certainly better than the tacky Atomic Blondie collection released in the late-90s. All Blondie's classics are present and correct in their original form, including Heart Of Glass, Hanging On The Telephone, Sunday Girl and the brilliantly innovative Rapture, surely their finest moment, which features the first ever rap by a female artist.
It sensibly sticks to their best songs whilst avoiding any filler-fodder or annoying remixes and the track order, while not chronological, is a fluid and well-blended balance of their material.
Perhaps an up to date and chronologically correct collection inclusive of their 1999 No.1 Maria and Island Of Lost Souls (their last interesting single prior to this), free of needless remixes, would be a worthy testimonial to one of the greatest and most prolific bands of the New Wave era. Until this appears, your best bet is this excellent compilation.

Debbie Harry whether you like it or not is what makes Blondie Tick, shame because the boys in the band do an excellent job but none of us punters can ever seem to remember their names.
Fact of life that and often the way, when ever I mention Mick Ronson to anyone rarely do they even know who he was but without him David Bowie and Lour Reed could have sank without a trace.
Meanwhile this is a must have album that documents and era well worth remembering.
We Men all fell in love with Debbie Harry but she never married any of us, perhaps she is much wiser than anyone knew?

My adult life has had as a background the idiosyncratic music of BLONDIE which unlike other fads never seems to bore or date. I watched her at the Maida Vale studio production recently she still has a great voice and her band still have a great sound - more mature but good.

This recording has all the original vibrancy and magic of the Blondie factor with the 'hook' which continues to play in your mind long after the player has been turned off - charismatic and quirky Blondie surrounded by superb musicians.

This definitely is the best Blondie compilation - basically all the big hit singles, uncluttered by extended 12" versions, pointless remixes or sub-par live tracks. Every song is an absolute cracker, and they do stand the test of time. Plus they're not in chronological order, so you get their punkier early material nicely juxtaposed with the later lush pop and disco and rap ventures. Every Blondie song you saw on Top of the Pops is here - 'Dreaming', 'The Tide Is High', 'Heart of Glass', 'Atomic', 'Call Me', 'I'm Always Touched by Your Presence Dear', 'Sunday Girl', etc. etc. With tunes this good, any quibbles are going to be down to personal taste, but I'd say that there are some omissions that make this the 'Obvious Best Of' rather than a best of that might throw you some stuff you didn't know but that is as good as the hits. From their earlier career debut single 'X-Offender' surely belongs here, maybe 'Detroit 442', and some of the album tracks from the mighty 'Parallel Lines' - 'One Way or Another' is a glaring omission, '11:59', 'Fade Away and Radiate' maybe. At the other end of their first run, final hit 'Island of Lost Souls' would hold its own, and it would be good if this comp could be updated to include 'Maria', 'No Exit' and 'Nothing is Real But the Girl' from the start of their comeback. Nothing they've done since would warrant inclusion, and crucially, none of the tracks on this album should be dropped to make way for the other stuff. So basically it is THE 'best of' in commercial terms, but with some carefully selected additions (and no pruning!) could become a genuine best of from all angles.
