VH1: The Best of Where Are They Now

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Dave Gil de Rubio
Although VH1's Behind the Music probably gets more mentions around the water cooler, there's plenty to be said about its little brother Where Are They Now? The performers featured on this collection were drawn from a pool of artists whose heyday and images are inextricably linked to the '80s and might be considered one-hit wonders in some quarters. Leaning heavily towards British new wavers such as the English Beat "Save It for Later" and Bananarama "Cruel Summer", this album features a smattering of American contemporaries including the Cars "Good Times Roll", the Motels "Only the Lonely", and the Hooters "And We Danced". There's also a slight international flavor...

Barnes & Noble - Dave Gil de Rubio
Although VH1's Behind the Music probably gets more mentions around the water cooler, there's plenty to be said about its little brother Where Are They Now? The performers featured on this collection were drawn from a pool of artists whose heyday and images are inextricably linked to the '80s and might be considered one-hit wonders in some quarters. Leaning heavily towards British new wavers such as the English Beat "Save It for Later" and Bananarama "Cruel Summer", this album features a smattering of American contemporaries including the Cars "Good Times Roll", the Motels "Only the Lonely", and the Hooters "And We Danced". There's also a slight international flavor to these proceedings as Wales the Alarm, Scotland Big Country, and Australia the Divinyls all get represented on this roll call of past-their-prime acts. While the inclusion of Mr. Mister's "Kyrie" and the Dream Academy's "Life in a Northern Town" slows the pace a bit, the Burundi-flavored rhythms of hits by Adam Ant "Goody Two Shoes" and Bow Wow Wow "I Want Candy" will keep your toes tapping as you ask yourself where they are now.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
VH1's The Best of Where Are They Now? gathers 16 of the best singles from the missing-in-action artists profiled on the channel's long-running show. The Waitresses' "I Know What Boys Like," the Divinyls' "I Touch Myself," Mr. Mister's "Kyrie," and Big Country's "In a Big Country" are some of the best examples of the true one-hit wonders featured on this collection, while Squeeze's "Pulling Mussels From the Shell" and Bananarama's "Cruel Summer" merely present these group's biggest hits. Strangest of all, though, is the inclusion of the Cars' #41 hit "Good Times Roll" -- the group went on to score bigger and better chart successes before fading away in the late '80s; tracks from Bow Wow Wow, the Motels, the Dream Academy, the Hooters, and Adam Ant are more in keeping with the album's one-hit wonder theme. At any rate, The Best of Where Are They Now? is a better-than-average collection of '70s and '80s pop and new wave hits that have endured longer than their creators' careers.
