Greatest Hits
tom Burleigh | Brooklyn, NY | 10/11/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This beautifully packaged Greatest Hits single cd set is a 17 song career overview picked by none other than Tim Butler of the Furs. Contains all the Johnny Rotten com '80's Butler sneers and the classics one expects when using "Greatest Hits" as a title. Plus, a previously unreleased live version of "Only You and I" and interview w/Richard Butler & John Ashton. For the casual fan, newcomer or one in need of a quick fix - this is perfect. For the seasoned veteran, I'd suggest the in-depth 2 disc set, "Should God Forget. A Retrospective." "Greatest Hits is basically a shorter version of "Should God Forget (note same covers/different colors)."
A curious overview

"For a single CD compilation "Greatest Hits," this does little to freshen the band's previous greatest hits package, 1988s "All of this and Nothing." The classic Furs cuts are here, but for a survey of anything after 1988, this offers a poor compilation of what's best from "Book of Days" and "World Outside." Those curious about the Furs would do better to invest in the 1997 Sony/Legacy "Should God Forget." As close to a box set as your going to get,this 2-CD retrospective has all the essential Furs hits of "Greatest Hits," some great previously unreleased gems, and the decent cuts from the Furs most recent studio work. Rumor has it the band is in the studio recording a new album (6/01), and their recent US tour (2001) has Richard Butler in fine vocal form and appearing to enjoy being on the road again. Bandmates John Ashton and Tim Butler are a tight ensemble. Whatever CD you chose, the Furs have been an overlooked and underappreciated band of the 80s. Long live the Furs!"
Over-remastered

"It's terrible when they take good music and "remaster" it, or remake it to sound like current commercial music. Electric noise, excessive bass/treble are emphasized here. Vocals and clarity are de-emphasized. It's a good collection of songs, but the remastering ruins it. Instead get the collection "All of This and Nothing"."
