AllMusic Review by

EMI's Greatest Hits collection doesn't stray too far from the play list that graced 1997's excellent Divinyls compilation Make You Happy 1981-1993. Both anthologies offer undeniable proof of the Aussie rock group's range and pop acumen, both of which never really connected with U.S. listeners outside of "I Touch Myself" (it probably didn't help that the band broke out at the same time as INXS). From new wave ("Science Fiction") to classic rock ("Boys in Town") to commercial pop ("I'm Jealous"), the Divinyls definitely earned their place in the "Australian Rock Hall of Fame," and this fine collection of songs is proof.
