AllMusic Review by

Part of Universal's European triple-disc career retrospective series, Collected rounds up 55 tracks from the shape-shifting singer/songwriter, from the new wave/punk attack of early offerings like "Got the Time" and "On Your Radio," both of which came to life in 1979, to live sessions from the early 2000s. It's a lot to chew on, but for fans caught between 2008's excellent two-disc Gold retrospective and 2007's 97-track Japanese issued Steppin' Out: The A&M Years, 1979-89, this priced-to-move (and lovingly crafted) three-disc set should do the trick.
