CD Reviews

Oddball Collection with some great moments
J. Collins | 01/02/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This compilation of the Bananas spans the first eight (or so) years of their career, though it doesn't include many of their biggest hits. The "cut-off" point is the material from "Pop Life," and this album includes the diamond-hard dance pop of Stock Aitken Waterman's "Ain't No Cure," probably their most frothy and fun entry in the Banana's catalog. A few of the groups lesser known singles ("Robert DeNiro's..." is one) are here, along with some interesting album tracks ("I Can't Let You Go"), and a handful of 'Rama Rarities. "Scarlett" has a nice bouncy edge, but the girls' vocals are pretty sloppy; "Ghost" is likely the worst cut, with solo vocal lines so flat that you can't help but understand why the girls usually sing in unison. No, there's no copy of "Venus" or even "Cruel Summer," but there are more than enough "hit" moments in this collection to satisfy your average BananaFan."
