FIRST:let me tell you that I received my copy from Amazon Germany.They released this title a week in advance from Amazon UK.I couldn't wait any longer for this release!!!
SECOND:The best videos of OMD are all here!Great picture quality and sound.All tracks are in STEREO.You will find a great surprise to enjoy earlier clips like SOUVENIR and ENOLA GAY in STEREO.In the VHS Greatest Hits edition these clips were in mono.So, now we can enjoy these clips in a brand new way!!!
The DVD authoring was made by ABBEY ROAD INTERACTIVE,the same guys responsable for the DURAN DURAN Greatest DVD and SPANDAU BALLET CD+DVD.Andy Walter restored the audio, and he did a great job!
So,buy it!

Every single OMD video ever made. What more can I say? Many of these have never been released in any format. I would have given my eyeteeth for this collection, now all I have to give is a few quid. Highlights for me are Maid of Orleans, Talking Loud and Clear (which was very popular on the video jukeboxes in pubs in summer 1984), Dream of Me and best of all Never Turn Away. These are the cream of a fantastic, unbelievable collection. Of course, most fans will buy this for the DVD, but don't overlook the CD, some of the tracks have been digitally remastered.

As a life long fan this was a must buy for me. I was't too interested in the CD (as like many i've got all the tracks a few times over) it was the DVD i wanted. Infact really this should really be called 'Messages - The OMD videos' with a audio CD thrown in for free. I've now replaced the ageing VHS tape and am delighted to have been able to that. For the newbie an excellent audio and visual combination to start you on your way!

Yes, yes, it is a rehash of the Best Of OMD from'88 and The OMD Singles from '98. BUT, and this is a big but...this new package contains ALL of the bands promo videos spanning their entire career.

Some of the videos show their age (although cleaned up nicely for this release), and are worth watching for nostalgic purposes. However, some of the newer vids are stunning - I will make particular mention of Walking on the Milky Way, Dream of Me, and Then You Turn Away - the purchase price is worth it for these tracks alone.

As a bonus, you get 20 remastered tracks on CD - not one of them a duffer (which makes this greatest hits package virtually unique, against most other artists).

Bargain purchase.

OUTSTANDING.... what an awsome cd this is.. 4 uni mates having a mashup on 2 keyboards, drums and a good old bass guitar... 1980 was the time of the OMD craze and im greatful I was a part of it... the electro pop had begun.. Im mid 40s and I urge all youth to bye this piece of history.. SUPERB

What a Bargain! How anybody can moan about this is beyond me.

£2.99. Delivered. A Greatest Hits CD. A 31 song Video DVD. Ripped MP3s of the CD. Some of the videos are of poor (ish) quality but it was the early 80s and VHS quality video was all we had. Enjoy the music for £2.99 and the rest is a bonus. If you are an OMD fan you'll enjoy this bargain-I know I did.

Buy it.

The cd is very good with the remastered tracks etc, and it contains pretty much all the chart entries (few absentees, but there you go) to keep anyone happy BUT this is a must-have for either OMD fans or anyone who was around in the 80s because the dvd contains 31 videos (yes, THIRTY ONE) running through everything they did, plus loads of tracks I'd not seen or heard before. As such the videos act as a reminder of just how much changed in a short space of time regarding what was expected in a pop video, technological tricks and gimmicks, and the group's image - and the vids also act as a reminder of life back in the 80s and to a lesser extent the 90s. They brought back memories which would otherwise have left me, and for that I'm even more pleased with this collection.

This is a great addition to anyone's music collection, and I'd strongly recommend it even if you think you're not much of a fan.

Very fast delivery and have enjoyed listening to and rekindling memories of when I was growing up and listening to one of my fave bands, OMD. I have Architecture & Morality in vinyl and loved it but haven't played it for decades until I recently caught the video of Souvenir, powerful music and hauntingly beautiful. I now listen to all my OMD hits in my car while driving to work and back.
