Not a bad collection of this edgy girl group's best sides, particularly "Remember (Walking in the Sand" (which got a new lease on life when it appeared in the movie Goodfellas) and, of course, the classic title track. This is hardly a definitive career retrospective, however, as it's missing "Give Him a Great Big Kiss," "Sophisticated Boom Boom," and "Past, Present, and Future" (among others). On the other hand, many of the more extensive collections -- this one has only ten tracks -- lack "So Much Love," "Shout," and "Goodnight My Love." Although Polygram's Leader of the Pack does include "Give Him a Great Big Kiss," it's missing "Remember," so this one is probably the better bet. At the very least, there's no filler here.
