Greatest Hits

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Moira McCormick
When they burst onto the post-punk rock scene in 1980, the Psychedelic Furs' heady, lysergic swirl of guitars, bass, drums, sax, and the husky, haunted voice of Richard Butler was unlike anything that had been heard since the heyday of the Velvet Underground. It was intoxicating, and their arrival kicked off a mini-wave of trippy British guitar bands, including Echo & the Bunnymen, the Teardrop Explodes, and the Chameleons UK. This is the Furs' first official greatest hits package though a 33-track retrospective, Should God Forget, was released in '97, and it's a breezy encapsulation of their career to date.

Barnes & Noble - Moira McCormick
When they burst onto the post-punk rock scene in 1980, the Psychedelic Furs' heady, lysergic swirl of guitars, bass, drums, sax, and the husky, haunted voice of Richard Butler was unlike anything that had been heard since the heyday of the Velvet Underground. It was intoxicating, and their arrival kicked off a mini-wave of trippy British guitar bands, including Echo & the Bunnymen, the Teardrop Explodes, and the Chameleons UK. This is the Furs' first official greatest hits package though a 33-track retrospective, Should God Forget, was released in '97, and it's a breezy encapsulation of their career to date. From the raggedly ominous sound of their earliest albums to the slicker fare of later years, Greatest Hits includes 17 songs, most of which have made some kind of impression on the Billboard charts. The set opens with the trance-inducing, rhythmic drone of "Sister Europe," touches on the Furs' first big U.S. single "Pretty in Pink" this is actually the original version, which didn't chart here, FM radio and dance-club staples like the percussive "Love My Way," comparatively tender numbers such as "Heaven" and "Heartbreak Beat," and more. Also included is a previously unreleased live version of 1982's "Only You and I." Liner notes stress that this album isn't a memorial: The Psychedelic Furs plan to follow this up with their eighth studio album.
All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
Paul Weller once said "I never understood why the Psychedelic Furs didn't sell more records." Richard Butler broke up the band in 1991, leaving the Psychedelic Furs' synth-tinged, horn-revered sound to fade away in the surge of '90s grunge rock, and their chances of becoming a global success were never fully developed. They achieved moderate success in their native U.K. with songs such as "All That Money Wants" and "President Gas," but only the American college charts paid attention to what the band was trying to do. All of This and Nothing 1988 was released shortly after the Psych Furs' big break in America thanks to the popularity of "Heartbreak Beat" and the John Hughes soundtrack classic "Pretty in Pink." The extensive, overwhelming double-disc Should God Forget: A Retrospective followed in 1997, offering lost grooves, B-sides, and outtakes aside from the hits. Columbia's own Greatest Hits package features a 17-track setlist, handpicked by Tim Butler. The collection streams through the band's career of 14 years, including all the favorites and cult classics, such as "Love My Way," "Dumb Waiters," "Sister Europe," and "Heaven," as well as the previously unavailable single version of "Mr. Jones."

    Can be considered a classic!

    I have always been a fan of '80s pop and I was researching this band online and I found this album. I listened to the tracks and they sounded great. I already knew the songs "Love my Way" and "Pretty in Pink". I love those songs to death so I wasn't suprised that this album is considered a classic. You will love this album. I recommend tracks 1-17...wait...THAT'S ALL OF THEM!!!

    Album is "Pretty" good

    A lot of the songs sound the same, although there's nothing wrong with any of them...
