"_____Desafortunadamente para quienes les gusta el rock en español, y especialmente Duncan Dhu, este álbum representa un verdadero timo. Yo escribí el segundo comentario en esta página y me retractó de mi recomendación. En España se emitió este album bajo el nombre de "Colección: 1985-1998" y consta de dos CD's y más canciones representado toda la gama musical de esta agrupación, incluyendo cuatro canciones nuevas. Recomiendo a todos que traten de obtener la emisión española de este album (¡es mejor!) ya sea a través de una amistad o un comercio Internet español; porque verdaderamente "Greatest Hits" no vale la pena por lo que dejaron fuera. ¡Y ojalá la industria y su mercadotecnia dejen de timarnos! También les aconsejo enviar una queja a la casa grabadora (Warner) por vendernos tal subproducto en los Estados Unidos de América."
More Jewels where these came from.

"Sophisticated guitar pop, halfway between the Boo Radleys and the Smiths (with scattered bits of Rock-a-billy, Funk and Flamenco). In barely half a dozen releases, Mikel Erentxun and Diego Vasallo (a.k.a. Duncan Dhu, from the Basque Country) have written and recorded some of the most beautiful pop songs of the last two decades. This Greatest Hits collection barely scratches the surface of their opus and I recommend you not only to play every song on this CD, but to also look for their previous albums. True jewels. All in Spanish."
Could have been better

"Duncan Dhu was among the good spanish rock bands of the 80's (but not the best) they made melancholic acoustic rock songs very close to the 50's rock n roll aesthetic and the song selection of this compilation was drawn from the spanish edition "coleccion: 1985-1998" which had a lot more songs, but wasn't printed in the U.S. and I have to say that they could have included more songs, but I guess that the people in WEA Latina (US) are cheap. You get just a few hits and 2 live songs, do not include live songs in compilatons, best of or greatest hits collections. Also the songs aren't in chronological order, and for this reason you can't perceive the growth of the band from 50's revivalists to dream pop genius. The live version of "en algun lugar" is way too inferior than the original version. Unfourtunally this is all we've got, so it's better than nothing from this great band.
Regarding the comment from one reviewer that Caifanes, Mana and all of the spanish rock groups owe to Duncan Dhu it's just plain IGNORANT the mentioned groups couldn't be more different. Duncan Dhu was a very good band, but not on the top league with the best like Soda Stereo, Heroes del Silencio and Caifanes."
