The Best of Starship contains two of the group's three big hits -- "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" and "Sara, " but not "We Built This City" -- plus the lesser-known Top Ten hit "It's Not Over (Till it's Over)" and a number of album tracks. In other words, it's not really the "best" of, especially since "We Built This City" is missing. For some listeners, that oversight will be bearable if they consider the cheap price this budget-line disc fetches. Still, even casual fans would want all three hits on one disc, and that's what makes The Best of Starship far from a bargain.
