20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Wang Chung gathers 11 of the English synth pop group's definitive songs, including their biggest hits "Everybody Have Fun Tonight," "Dance Hall Days," and "To Live and Die in LA," their last big single, 1989's "Praying to a New God," and the trip-hoppy "Space Junk," a track they recorded for the 1997 retrospective Everybody Wang Chung Tonight: Wang Chung's Greatest Hits. This compilation doesn't try to compete with the depth and breadth of Everybody Wang Chung Tonight, though it does offer several interesting album tracks like "Wait," "Don't Be My Enemy," and "Let's Go!," as well as the single "Hypnotize Me" from the Innerspace soundtrack. Overall, 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Wang Chung works as a concise time capsule of the group's best work and is ideal for casual fans.
