It seems odd that a group that really only released two albums' worth of material in the span of about 18 months should warrant two best-of collections released only three years apart. Nevertheless, Promises, Promises: The Very Best of Naked Eyes beats the competition by offering 20 tracks, including all four of the hits, most of the album tracks, a few B-sides, and two versions of "Promises, Promises" -- nearly all of the duo's recorded output. And while anything more than four songs is probably overkill for all but the new wave-obsessed, it is nice to have it all available in one package.
