80s music at its best!
For A Better Greatest Hits, Search For "All the Best"
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is a decent greatest hits package, but a bit disappointing if you know more about Tiffany's music. For one, "Back in the Groove Now" and "Mr. Mambo" are pretty poorly deserving of slots on this album. It might be hard to search for it as it was released only in Japan, but "All the Best" is an awesome greatest hits package with two great rarely heard Tiff tunes, including one she co-wrote. By the way, search "We Will Follow" on this site and you can find a great new Tiff cover of U2 called "New Years' Day." As for the disappointing Deb fan below, don't hate. If I must compare, I will say that Deb is good fun, but I do think Tiffany is more genuine and equipped with a lovelier voice. But I respect your right to disagree, of course."
Really great collection of songs

"Tiffany's biggest hit no doubt about it was "I Think We're Alone Now," but she is so much more than that one single. If you didn't follow her career after the first single you might want to check out this collection. "Radio Romance" and "Mr. Mambo" are upbeat songs that will give you that happy 80's feeling in an instant. "Feelings of Forever," and "Back in the Groove" are great ballads. I am pleased with this set and I think you will be too."
Pop music at its best

"Since Tiffany has made a comeback with "The Color of Silence" in 2000 we can hope that this "greatest hits" album was premature. It was compiled and released in 1996, at which time as far as the general North American public was concerned Tiffany's discography consisted of her popular debut album "Tiffany" and her second album "Hold An Old Friends Hand." In fact the only songs on this album not found on those two are "Back In the Groove" and "Here in My Heart" from "New Inside" (her third album which sold poorly), and "Mr. Mambo" which was originally released as B-Side to the single for "I Saw Him Standing There". There are no songs from "Dreams Never Die" which was only released in Japan. Nevertheless this is a great album and one of my favorites. It starts with Tiffany's very popular rendition of "I Think We're Alone Now" and concludes with "Could Have Been Me" which are perhaps her two best songs. It also includes her excellent rendition of Lennon/McCartney's "I Saw Him Standing There". It is also digitally remastered, and in my opinion makes a great addition to any CD library. It represents the best of '80's pop music."
80's Teen Pop At Its Greatest

"Right along with NKOTB and Debbie Giobson, Tiffany dominated the late 80's with pleasent teen pop tunes. Although her fame only lasted about 2 years, she still managed a lot in that time period. Tiffany's debut album went 4x platinum *quite an accomplishment back then* and yielded two #1 singles. "I Think We're Alone Now" *the remake of the 60's pop tune* was just about perfect and Tiffany sounded great on it. "Could've Been" was the other #1 and I rank it as one of the best ballads of the 80's. Tiffany pulls it off wonderfully. She also pulled off another top 10 hit from her debut "I Saw Him Standing There" which is also represented on here along with a minor hit "Feelings of Forever." Then in 1988, Tiffany released her sophomore album "Hold An Old Friend's Hand." The album wasn't as successful as her debut, but it was by no means a flop. It went platinum and gave Tiffany the top 10 hit "All This Time" which is right up there with "Could've Been." "Radio Romance" was also a hit cracking the top 40. It may not be right calling this a "Greatest Hits" seeing as how many of the songs were never hits, but even the non-hits are fairly good. "Danny" is a nice piece of ear candy and so is "Hold An Old Friend's Hand." They both fit in well with the distinguished singles. Although Tiffany didn't have the hits like other teen pop acts such as Debbie Gibson or the Backstreet Boys or even NKOTB, but she still had an incredible voice and this collection shows that she really was talented for her age."
