1 stars A gathering of tunes from previous albums plus a few new ones. The new tunes are "Princess of the Universe" (nothing special, a rocker with a catchy chorus), "Monument" (ok), and "Fix Your Gaze" (the best). The reruns are popular and well-known songs such as "Hammer in My Heart", "Crybaby", "Mated", and "Play This Game". Basically, this is a greatest hits album from their poppiest period with a few "new" tunes thrown on for interest. But they really add little. Overall, nothing to write home about- typical Utopia of the 80's, power- pop, catchy choruses, perky lyrics, and, fortunately, tight band singing and playing. 1 star is all I can grant to this unneeded collection. If you like their newer sound, just get the albums. Or, better yet, try their live album REDUX, which features much of this collection done better.
