  • This compilation gives a career overview for the Furs within a single-disc framework. It should, since the songs were hand-picked by bandleaders Richard and Tim Butler. Focusing on the "hits" aspect, the band's edgy, post-punk debut gets short shrift, represented only by the moody, Bowie-ish "Sister Europe." The more expansive but equally angular TALK TALK TALK gives three classic cuts (though "Mr. Jones" is presented here in the slightly different single version).
  • The Furs got poppier on the Todd Rundgren-produced FOREVER NOW, which is represented by three cuts. According to the scheme of this collection, the band's biggest pop success (MIRROR MOVES) receives the most attention, and its tunes (including "Heaven" and "Heartbeat") show the Furs' mixture of grit and polish at its most alluring. Those wishing to dig deeper should seek out the two-disc SHOULD GOD FORGET, but first-timers will find that this collection works quite nicely.
Professional Reviews
Q (5/01, p.137) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...The 6-track run of 'Pretty In Pink', 'Love My Way', 'President Gas', 'Here Come Cowboys', 'Heaven' and 'Heartbeat' is fantastic: worth the money alone for any fan of decadent romanticism, mocking sarcasm and Catholic guilt..."
