Synopsis

Album Details
Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh Left the Original Lineup of the Human League after Having Differences with Phil Oakey. They Recruited Glenn Gregory (Who's Vocal's were Remarkably Similar to Oakey's) and Heaven 17 was Born. Their First Single Together, "we Don't Need this Fascist Groove Thing", was an Immediate Hit, a Political Call to Arms Against the Rise of Conservatives Both in the UK and Us. They Continued Forth with "i'm Your Money", "at the Height of the Fighting" and "Penthouse and Pavement" and their Career was off to a Swift Start. It Went Into Hyperspace with the Megahit "Let Me Go", which Hit Big on Both Sides of the Atlantic. This Collection Gathers all their Hits from their Enitire Career Run on a Single Convenient Disc.

I BEG TO DIFFER!
Calvin Pollock | Toronto, Ontario Canada | 07/22/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This might not be the best compilation, but anyone who hasn't heard (/of) these guys must have slept through the 80s! Who could forget the timeless "Let Me Go", the groovy "Play to Win", the happenin' "Penthouse & Pavement", the funky "Fascist Groove Thang", the furious "Temptation", & "Crushed by the Wheels...", and on and on... All of these guys, before and after the branching off of Human League, DEFINED British Electronic Pop!"
