While the graphic design on Headed for a Heartbreak may not exactly be modern art at its finest, the contents inside Collectables 2006 greatest-hits anthology of Winger captures the band at its peak during the prime years of hair metal in the late '80s. All of the group's biggest hits are present including "Headed for a Heartbreak," "Easy Come, Easy Go," "Miles Away," and "Seventeen." There's no real fancy packaging, liner notes, or remastered sound quality, and die-hard fans may be better off seeking out the 2001 Very Best of Winger package for a more comprehensive look at Winger's career. However, those wanting just the hits won't go wrong in picking this disc up for their collection.
