Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This review is for the scarce Canadian 15 track issue - which features 4 extended versions (3 as bonus tracks). This is possibly so far the only CD location for the original extended mix of "Game Above My Head", as the Joseph Watt re-edit appeared as a bonus track on the more recent re-master of Mange Tout - this compilation features the mix on the Waves 12".

The tracks are all singles, plus the odd b-side, and the session track "Your Time Is Over" (from Mange Tout era), so this is a very strong collection of all their hits up to "What's Your Problem". If you want later singles then the yellow blancmange covered compilation, or the Platinum Collection, will include a few extras, although they also tend to have some fillers.

Whilst Neil still carries the name, and some of his more recent solo material is pretty good, this compilation covers the duo's really essential single cuts.

One of the better electronic bands of the 80's.
This best of compilation is recommended. Great sound and not a single dud on this compilation.

Up there with 80's electronica of Heaven 17, The Human League, OMD, Depeche Mode and Soft Cell.

Get it.

It brings back the memories of when I was 18 all over again. at the time I'm struggling through college, the long bus journey, the endless lectures, but at the end of the day I could sit down and relax to the sound of Blanmange.
From the shrill sounds of "waves", which could give deer levels of relaxation to the cover of the classic bacharach / Abba Blancmange version of "The Day Before You Came".
A very wierd name for a band, but remember they made it to number 1 with "Living On The Ceiling" (describes how I felt sometimes at that age.
I wonder if they will ever make a come back with what was at the time revolutionary synthasised music, I remember them clearly as if it was yesterday as I listen to the "Best of" CD from Amazon, their first of many appearances on the world renowned TV programme "The Tube" Pure music listening pleasure - GJL

4.0 out of 5 stars Lite, Fluffy and Refreshingly Fun 24 Feb. 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're at all interested in early eighties synth-pop and you missed Blancmange - do yourself a favor and check them out. What distinguishes this duo is the appealing fact that they didn't take themselves too seriously, unlike their angst-ridden, vanity struck contemporaries. Sure, Steve barely cracked a smile - but he was busy with his synths and drum machines and trying to keep the whole thing together. Neil simply enjoyed every minute of it - a big stupid grin on his face as he'd wrench out a deceptively simplistic guitar solo that would have made a 70's guitar god weep. But underneath the self-deprecating humor there was some pretty good music going on and I'm still enjoying Blancmange years after I've discarded the Visages, Numans, Modes and Yazoos. They were unpretentious - and their music was all the better for that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sound of the early 80's 24 Nov. 2002
By Peter Uys - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Neil Arthur and Stephen Luscombe formed Blancmange in 1979 as a clever little synth duo. They started hitting bit in 1982, with the 3rd single Living On The Ceiling selling over 300 000 copies and propelling the Happy Families album into a lengthy chart run. Second Helpings includes 9 of their chart singles and a couple of interesting B-sides. Arthur's dulcet voice and the Depeche Mode-like synths are a pleasant combination, almost but not quite putting Blancmange on a par with the aforementioned synth wonders and contemporaries like Ultravox. A valuable retrospective on the sound of the early 1980's.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only way to get classic "Don't Tell Me" 10 July 2006
By M. Berzins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Since it's unavailable on most services, this album remains one of the few ways to get the classic song "Don't Tell Me". You pay for all the extra songs. Best to buy this used, get it in your iTunes, and ditch the CD.
