This budget-priced German import features ten cuts culled from Adam Ant's early-'80s heydays, including the hits "Goody Two Shoes," "Kings of the Wild Frontier," "Stand and Deliver," and "Prince Charming." There's not a bad track to be found here, but the amount of material missing eclipses the collection's strengths. Fans looking for a better retrospective from the new wave/post-punk buccaneer would be better off with Epic/Legacy's Essential Adam Ant or Music Club's two-disc Dandy Highwaymen: The Best of Adam & the Ants.
