Spectrum's budget-priced Silver Spectrum Collection features ten cuts from snide new wave/post-punk/singer/songwriter Joe Jackson, including the hits "Is She Really Going out with Him?" and "Breaking Us in Two," but as far as Jackson compilations go, this one is a dud. Listeners looking for an overview with more than two hits should pick up 2008's double-disc Gold collection, 2007's Tonight & Forever: The Joe Jackson Collection, or 2001's Steppin' Out: The Very Best of Joe Jackson.
