If I could give it zero stars I would.

Same as all the other reviews - horrible discoish re-recordings (and Amazon should highlight this a little better I think).

I just hope the original singers get some royalties from my wasted cash.

I am afraid this is not worth the time, much less the money, spent! No liner notes, no information on the band or the recordings, whatsoever. And what's worse, these classic tunes appear here with a production treatment that includes new instruments, especially on the rhythm and beat of the tracks. The result is an apparently "updated" collection that does not stand the pass of time half as well as the original recordings.

A very deceiving album - you type 'crystals best of' or 'crystals collection', and it comes up with this. Why this should be the first CD on the Crystals Store is beyond me. These are NOT the original versions - they are totally pointless remixes that you would imagine only ever listening to in bargain-basement clothing shops. But because of these weird dance-laden mixes, the voices sound almost totally different. I would not even give this CD 1star. Avoid like the plague - there are plenty of original best-of that are good further down the pages!

PLEASE DO NOT WASTE MONEY ON THIS JUNK!!! It's all 1990's style re-recordings with awful, soulless computerized backings, with some terrible mindless dance re-mixes. It doesn't state this anywhere on the packaging!!!
A CD for the landfill!

The Best ofThis CD is nothing like the sound of the original crystals. There is nothing in the Amazon description to say that they are not the original artists. I feel a fool for not reading the reviews before purchase. DO NOT BUY THIS CD. You are wasting your money.

This is rubbish. No original recordings. Poor 'upbeat' modern remixes copies of some classic original tracks. There is nothing on the Amazon description of this CD to suggest that it is not original recordings. I've been conned!
