AllMusic Review by

In the 1990s, the two most prominent Kajagoogoo compilations (amidst a bunch of hastily patched together budget-line jobs) were this one and 1993's Too Shy: The Singles and More. Both compilations are very similar and are representative of the group's career -- all the while anthologizing some of Limahl's solo material -- with only a three-song switch-up in track selection. Too Shy: The Singles and More pays more attention to Limahl's solo career; this disc opts to go a little deeper with Kajagoogoo, since "Charm of a Gun," "Kajagoogoo," and "The Power to Forgive" are included instead. For most, the differences won't matter, since both compilations have "Too Shy" and "Never Ending Story."
