Lacking Key Songs.

"I have not purchased this collection. I love Shooting Star and I am reviewing this as a consumer looking to upgrade their record collection to DVD. I can see omitting a few lesser songs that some people like, over other songs that other people like (like "Stranger" from the first album), but it is unthinkable to omit major hits from an anthology collection. "Flesh and Blood" is a major song from the "Hang on for your life" album and easily one of their best songs in general. There are many other songs that should have been scratched to make room for this. Even worse is that "Do You Feel Alright" is also missing. One of their all time best songs and THE biggest song from the "III Wishes" album. It was to "III Wishes" what "Last Chance" was to the first album. It's an unforgivable omission. What good is an anthology if you still have to buy the individual CDs to get all the hits?"
A nearly flawless collection

""Anthology" expands on Best of Shooting Star: Touch Me Tonight: by including songs from Shooting Star's later albums on a second disc. This compilation covers the years 1980-2006. It's only true flaw is that "Flesh And Blood" was left off, which is real shame since it's their second best song (after "Last Chance"). The packaging is rather cheesy, but it's really hard to fault a compilation as excellent as this for that."
