The Very Best of Bonnie Tyler falls short of being a definitive collection, mainly because it only covers her RCA recordings. That means such hits as "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and "Holding out for a Hero" are missing, but her wonderful Rod Stewart homage "It's a Heartache" is present, along with 15 other songs in a similar vein. Even if some big hits aren't here, the disc is a good summation of the first part of her career.
