AllMusic Review by

A succinct summation of the three-year history of Les 5-4-3-2-1 with its original singer. The group had no real "hits" to speak of, but all the best songs are here, save their Serge Gainsbourg cover "69 Anée Erotique." Better yet, the album includes some hard-to-find tracks among the album selections. There's a remix of "Fantastic Voyage" that ups the spacy echo, the opening theme they recorded for the anime "Cutey Honey" (here remixed), the single mix of "Bus Stop Sur le Trottoir," a new mix of "54321" (not a Manfred Mann cover), and a new track called "Magic Tambourine." A satisfying compilation, though not one that reveals the group in any new light.
