CD Reviews

A good compilation to get the idea
Taimo Kolsar | Tartu, Estonia | 07/24/2003

"I'm their fan since "Down To Earth" entered the UK charts in January 1987. The first album "Keep Your Distance" was a huge success partly because all four (Ben, Miguel, Nick and Julian) look good, partly because of producer Stewart Levine and partly because of the hidden fifth member Toby Anderson; But should have been because of great music. This compilation includes most of this album, but misses "Know What You Know" and "Red Lights" - I'd say all tracks from the first album should be obligatory. But inclusion of "Curiosity..." is worth of mentioning, I have seen similar compilations without this one. Their second album "Get Ahead" (1989) was considered a commercial failure, although it's worth of listening. Their third album "Back To Front" (1994) can be left to store, because some BMG sublabel, after taking the band over from Phonogram (or was it Polygram?), has definitely forced the guys into trying to please teenage auditory again with cover versions of ancient disco hits such as "Killing Me Softly" and "Hang On In There", though some good original tracks can be found there too. Luckily, this compilation is made of only the material of the two first albums (with exception of "Bullet", which was the B-side of "Ordinary Day", and "Ball & Chain"). Buy the record, and you get a chance to listen to the best sophisticated white soul of the eighties. If you want to get more or get it all, you should search for the albums instead."
What? No "Red LIghts"? You're missin' out!

"I am an avid Curiosity fan. I bought the first tape in the eighties when "Misfit" hit Mtv, (I'm only 29). I was one of the first to run out and buy the second tape, for "Name and Number". My only disappointment with this "Greatest Hits" is that fact that thee best song by Curiosity is "Red Lights" which can be heard on the first release along with "Misfit" and you can hear it as background music on the Movie "American Psycho" (when he killed the rich girl and the hooker), but wasn't on that soundtrack either. I still listen to that tape all the time, its classic, you can't date it. It is like Harry Connick, Jr. getting Jazzy, but he's not Harry. I can't figure out why it didn't make the cut here. Regardless, anyone who enjoys some relaxing tunes on a sunday drive...this is the one for you. And if Curiosity reads this....PUT SOME MORE MUSIC OUT...YOU'VE GOT SOMETHING SPECIAL!"
