AllMusic Review by

Heaven 17 achieved moderate success in the 1980s and their kitschy new romanticism established them alongside the likes of Bronski Beat, the Human League, and Yaz. Combining lush vocals and quick synth beats, some of their biggest hits also became dance club mainstays. The Remix Collection highlights Heaven 17's sultry appeal on nearly a dozen remixes. Cult favorites like "Temptation" and "Train of Love in Motion" are switched up for something chic, and the sexy remix version of "(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang" struts with light house breakbeats. The Remix Collection isn't outstanding, but new wave pop fans might be pleased. It's all very reminiscent, and for the nostalgic feel alone, fans might enjoy it.
