Culture Club tells their story to VH1

"Culture Club's 1998 reunion is a two Cd set:1, a live; 2, a compilation of all their hits. This was definetey something alot of us have looking foreward to for a long time. Sadley, Helen Terry was not there to attend this event (don't ask me why, I'm just as clueless as you might be). Howver, Zee Cowling took her place quite well (with her rock n'roll strength in "Church of the poison mind," and emotion in "Victims"). All the other band mates are there, and Georges beautiful voice sounds ever so strong. He can still bring a tear to an eye when singing the timeless "Do you really want to hurt me?." Packed with some new songs:"Strange voodoo," (from their new album "Don't mind if I do") and "What do you want?" And of course the other CD is great with all their hits, (including 2 of Georges solo songs) closing it with the song of their first reunion attempt, the beautiful "I just want to be loved." I really like this alot. I think I speak for everybody, and myself when I say, or ask: WHERE IS THE VIDEO?!"
A wiser, more sanguine Boy George takes command of his music

"Boy George's voice is in top form with a slighty smokey quality and a wiser more mature delivery that is reminisent of Sinatra's exceptional post-Ava Gardner recordings of the '60s. The live disc of new recordings of classic Culture Club songs and three new tracks show a singer/songwriter who is more acutely in touch with the emotions that once overwhelmed him. Bitter love songs of betrayal and disappointment that were originally recorded in the 80s with a dominant dance beat and a strangely unimpassioned phrasing and delivery, are here rerecorded with George's vocals for once soaring over the music and at last, his heart finally in it. The new single, "Voodoo" showcases the band's smooth mix of R&B and jazz and has a freer flow, musically, than many of the earlier signature reggae- influenced pop tunes, showing Culture Club's clear desire to reassert itself as something more than a novelty revival act.The second disc is a straight greatest hits CD, although the outside packaging is very unclear."

"The studio disc is great but the Live one was very weak&boring.the vocals were off.but the studio one sounded great.Time(clock of the Heart) is still the cut.Do you really want to hurt me has a classic Bass Line.miss me blind&just wanna be loved are Great songs.some Great songs that have endured."
