AllMusic Review by

Recall's Greatest Hits/Light Inside Colin Blunstone compilation includes the former Zombies' 2000 Greatest Hits collection and 1998's Light Inside on two discs. The latter, a set of new material co-penned by Nik Kershaw, consists of mostly over-produced adult contemporary pop in the vein of Sting and '80s-inspired rock anthems that echo Top Gun-era Kenny Loggins, while the former boasts a pair of the singer's finest singles from 1971's One Year ("Say You Don't Mind") and 1972's Ennismore ("I Don't Believe in Miracles"). It's scant at best, trading out many of Blunstone's better moments for lame remakes of Zombies classics like "She's Not There" and "Time of the Season." Listeners would be better off picking up 2002's Japanese import I Don't Believe in Miracles: The Best of Colin Blunstone or the recent reissues of either One Year or Ennismore.
