Great British Pop from the Early 80's

"Yes, Bucks Fizz were a manufactured group but they had great songwriters/producers like Andy Hill who gave them a highly listenable catchy sound.Though some of the songs from their early albums sound dated, their best material is from the Hand Cut and I Hear Talk albums. (I would love to see these re-released on CD!) Okay, so it still sounds like 80's music but for pure unpretentious pop, Bucks Fizz were the best of their time."
A decade of UK hits

"In the US, Bucks Fizz was one of the lesser known of the UK artists in the early-mid eighties. In the UK, they were HUGE. It's too bad they were never popular here, because they had some great songs. This particular CD was a disappointment though. I would have given it a better rating had it included "When We Were Young", "You and Your Heart So Blue", "Rules of the Game" and "New Beginning". I never really cared for "Magical", "Piece of the Action" or "London Town" and with the exception of "Piece of the Action", none of these were as big of hits in the UK as the missing songs they should have included in this compilation. However, it is still a good retrospective of their music, though it sounds very dated now. I am glad the producers of this CD did include "My Camera Never Lies", "Run for Your Life", "One of Those Nights" and "I Hear Talk" as these tracks are among the groups best. Overall a good buy for the price. I Wish someone would release the "Hand Cut" and "I Hear Talk" albums on CD!!!!"

"A great album for those who like '80 music. Bucks Fizz really made some great songs which are all on this CD. I really had a lot of fun listening to this. Hearing this CD you can tell why they were quite big in the early eighties and why they are still there."
