Essential for the 80's collector or a long-lost fan or both

"This is an anthology that was long overdue--the 'Furs' were never the most prolific of bands, but they certainly deserved better than to be relegated to a third-tier song on the slap-dash 'Wedding Singer' soundtrack in this day and age.Purists may be expecting more b-sides or live tracks, but whether you're the casual listener or the afficianado, this package has it all. If you're not entirely convinced that you need to spend your dollars so rashly, you can settle for either "Mirror Moves" or the earlier compilation "All of This and Nothing." I won't discount their later material, but it really is their 80's output that's the most interesting."
Definitive and worthy

"This is the definitive Furs collection. I do not see the need to buy every collection that's out there. Buy the actual albums instead. This one takes you from the early years through the nineties and offers off-the-beaten tracks and numbers that add some variety.Richard Butler is a tremendous performer who lends such edginess and beauty to the lyrics and the sounds. Working with various producers through the years makes this one fun in the sense of listening to so many songs on two discs. Lots of diversity."
The earlier material is great

"the first cd is great stuff, with richard butler's hoarse, john lydon-esque vocals mesmerizing within the context of a very good, adventurous, original band -- the live "mack the knife" is incredible. but the second cd is pretty bad, as they tried to repeat the surprise hit "love my way" and gradually turned into butler's backing unit rather than a dynamic collective. the lure of filthy lucre corrupts almost all of us as we leave our twenties, etc. they had a good run, far better than most, and a unique approach which still sounds excellent cranked up loud."
