The flamboyant, androgynous singer Boy George & Culture Club made some of the best new wave music during the early 80's. All their better-known smashes are here, including 'Do You Really Want to Hurt Me', 'Church of the Poison Mind', 'I'll Tumble 4 Ya', 'Time (Clock of the Heart), 'Karma Chameleon, 'Miss Me Blind', 'The War Song' & much more.
It's a shame no one knows about this album!

"I ordered this album about three weeks ago; but Amazon.com is having a tough time getting it to me. But I already know this CD will be OFF THE HOOK! Boy George and his Club of Culture recorded some of the most innovative and singable (is that a word) and danceable tracks in the 80's. Their songs were fresh and original. I swear to you young people; if you like the pop that's playing on the radio now, you will adore Culture Club. Cuts like Karma Chameleon, Mistake #3, Do You Really Want to Hurt Me and Church of the Poison Mind reverberate in my head and sound just as good as they did when they were all Top 10 songs. When talking retro, Culture Club is one of the most underrated groups around; but trust me...do yourself a favor and pick up this import! Amazon.com is selling it cheap; but it is worth three times as much as what they're asking! And I say that even before hearing the album. Pick it up...you won't be sorry."
Their 2nd best collection.

"This is a pretty sweet disc, and it does include most of the great "Culture Club" and "Boy George" songs, but I would easily get the "At Worst...The Best Of Boy George And Culture Club" first. Why, because it's cheaper, it's longer, and it includes "Victims", "Move Away", "The Crying Game", and "Bow Down Mister", all of which are missing here. It's just a matter of getting more for less. But this is still good of course, just not the best."

"I have a Canadian import of the budget CD where there's a shot from early '83 released by EMI's bargain basement byline CEMA. Imports are imports, even from across the lake!
This album is probably reissued more than other hits albums, with different covers. I did see the first compilation, "This Time", on a US Epic CD, which is rare, since by 1987, Virgin America was finally founded after Sir Richard Branson licenced his stars to various US labels; you know how it is! Anyway, all the songs you know and love are here; "Karma", "D'yer Really...?", you name it. Perfect for starters. Maybe there can be another reunion since Boy George is off his latest run-in with the law. I can't put his book down! He'll be 45 next week!"
