This budget-priced Kim Wilde collection boasts 19 of the English new wave singer's best cuts from her 1978 to 1983 tenure with RAK Records, like "Chequered Love," "Cambodia," and the international hit "Kids in America." This material has been covered before (and better) on EMI's 1996 Gold Collection, and fans looking for '90s hits like "You Came" and "You Keep Me Hangin' On" will come away disappointed. Listeners looking for the best of both worlds would be better off with 2001's The Very Best of Kim Wilde, which covers the artist's entire career.
