AllMusic Review by

Each Indeep album is avoidable for the percentage of filler, so Collection, released on Unidisc in 1991, is all you need -- unless you're a DJ desperate to expose some buried album cut that no one else paid attention to. This has everything you'd expect and more, including the number two club single "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life," "When Boys Talk" (number 16 club), "The Record Keeps Spinning" (number 32 club), and "Buffalo Bill" (number 81 black singles). Apart from the chart hits, there's nothing too memorable, and most of those cuts are either hampered by cloning attempts (the sub-Prince of "You Got to Rock It," for instance) or the kind of tacky saxophone soloing heard in too much mid-'80s pop. Still, there's no mistaking the fact that "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life" is an essential '80s dance track and should be obtained in some form. You might be better off hunting it down on a various-artists compilation.
