A rather interesting singles compilation from Soft Cell & Marc Almond, the collection features the Soft Cell singles to Where The Heart Is, then some Marc Almond singles, including his duets with Bronski Beat for I Feel Love and Gene Pitney for Something's Got A Hold Of My Heart. For Soft Cell fans, the SC singles on this release are, apart from Torch, not the original singles, but re-recordings by either The Grid (A Dave Ball vehicle) or Julian Mendelsohn, with Marc singing new vocals. The album states that Tainted Love and Say Hello Wave Goodbye are '91 versions (both were released as singles in 1991), but as I said, apart from Torch, the others are re-recordings as well. Marc's vocals are much more deliberate and controlled in these recordings, which is quite nice, but don't really compare to the soaring vocals of the original versions. However, there is something of interest for Soft Cell aficionados, but those wanting a more classic greatest hits package should look elsewhere. One interesting track included is an extended 8min version of Say Hello Wave Goodbye '91 by Mendelsohn; whilst nothing can come close to the original 12", this version isn't bad at all.

The Cd is a bit disappointing. Tainted Love is not the original recording, nor the 12" version, but some cheap remix of the song. It was their pinnacle song, so with a rubbish version of that track on this album, it devalues this collection in its entirety. Torch is the one track that is a stand out.

Marc Almond had this really good knack of pursuing the Northern Soul archives and adding his own spin on certain records of
that era. Young or old, purchase this CD, you won't be disappointed.
