Here is where you unlock Todd's prodigious output. This astonishingly good anthology is "The Best of the Best' from the great man, no less. Todd may not have invented the 'Mr Broken-Hearted' style of songwriting, but this compilation amply illustrates how he took it to another level (a tear will well up in your eye now and then). Todd's albums are infamous for experimental content to a greater or lesser degree, which can occasionally spill over sadly, into indulgence, but here experimentalism is absent, this is focused and very beautiful. If you're unfamiliar with Todd's extensive catalogue, have no fear, because this cherry-pick of Todd's work will knock you out. Buy it and simply put, you'll be buying Todd's most essential songs, over two hours of his 24-carat tunesmithery from his golden years. Nowhere is Todd better showcased than right here in this two cd set. Not only that, but a sprinkling of the songs have been improved from the album versions they originate from, fine tuned and tweaked by Todd himself, and of these few tweaked songs present on this 'best of,' by comparison the original versions on their respective albums sound variously; weak, out of tune, or incomplete. This emotionally moving and spectacular collection is a must have, irrespective of whether you're a "Todd freak" or not. Pound-for-pound, these two cd's are Todd's most essential release ever.

Writer of rock anthems and soulful ballads, synthesizer pioneer, technical wizard, one of rock's great innovators, complete nutter.....Todd Rundgren has been called all of these, and probably rightly.
He is almost unknown in Britain, apart from one very minor hit ('I saw the light') in 1972, although his milestone production of 'Bat out of hell' lurks in thousands of record collections. The patron saint of multi-instrumentalist studio solo artists, his production sound, vocal and keyboard techniques have been very influential and remain much imitated - Queen and 10cc are two bands whose best work owed a lot to his pioneering recordings. His desire to experiment also resulted in the inclusion of zany, cartoon-influenced songs and bizarre studio techniques which gained him a name for being wacky and unpredictable. However, this perhaps diluted his reputation as a writer of melodic, soulful pop songs, many of which can stand with the best work of any better known songwriter.
Fortunately, this compilation majors on the more memorable songs from Todd's classic period of recording throughout the 1970s, and with a few exceptions omits what might be termed his more 'crazy' material. It's basically a non-stop run of hits-that-should-have-been, and at over 2.5 hours in length is excellent value. Although the multi-tracked analogue synthesizers sound rather dated now, Todd's use of them was very innovative at the time, and the appeal of his vocal harmonies shines through anyway. Only at the end of the collection does the music lapse briefly into tedium, when Todd's inspiration seems to wane after a decade of frantic recording activity.

As The Pearlfishers astutely pointed out on one of their records Todd is God. If there's one criticism of him its that because of his prolific activity he can be a bit erratic. For the none devotee this compilation brings it all together perfectly. If you only ever heard the following tracks forever on repeat you would be blessed by one of pop's God-like genii: I Saw The Light, Sweeter Memories, Torch Song, Hello It's Me, Zen Archer, Last Ride, Freedom Fighter, Love Is The Answer, and the brilliant Tiny Demons (containing one of the best ever guitar solos). Commence.
