Straightforward Singles Collection
J. Collins | 11/20/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Though this set lacks a number of UK and Japanese singles, it's still packed with just about all their best-known tracks. The track progression is chronological, and the only original albums without representation are "Shapes and Patterns" and the recent "Somewhere deep in the night." I guess if you think of SOS as hitmakers or singles artists, this collection will certainly satisfy. If your interest in SOS extends to their lesser-known work, you're better off collecting the original recordings intact. For convenience sake, this CD is a handy sampler to take on trips, or when you're not able to bring along your entire SOS collection. Check out some of the other SOS compilations before you settle on this one...they all have their charms.J"
Surrender To Swing Out Sister
Alan Caylow | USA | 06/13/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A marvelous British jazz-pop group from the 80's, Swing Out Sister, led by sultry singer Corinne Drewery, are best known for the bouncy US Top Ten hit, "Breakout." But there's a lot more great songs where that came from, as this Best-Of collection proves. Of course "Breakout" kicks off the disc, but there's many more tasty treats that follow, including "Surrender," "Twilight World," "Waiting Game," "Am I The Same Girl" (SOS's clever re-working of the old Young-Holt Unlimited hit, "Soulful Strut"), "Better Make It Better," and "Who's Been Sleeping." Drewery's voice is smooth & silky, and so is the group's music. Great smooth grooves & snappy tunes from start to finish. Even though their latest albums are only available on Japanese import, I'm glad that Swing Out Sister are still together to this day, 'cause they are GOOD. "The Best Of Swing Out Sister" is a terrific sampling from this classy group."
A Great Collection!

"I enjoyed every song in this cd, even though only 4 of the tracks were popular in Puerto Rico. The interpretation of classical songs like "Am I the same girl" and "La La Means I love you" are great. The orchestration, arrangements and sound in general are very good. The jazzy-pop style of Swing Out Sister makes you move and sing from the beginning to the end. And Corinne's voice is spectacular! I highly recommend this collection to everyone who wants to enjoy good music."
