I can remember my first taste of Adam Ant as a kid in the early 80s and I still feel that they have incredible and extremely diverse musical talent. I was fasinated with them at an early age....their music was not only sexual and controversial (with early tracks such as ''Whip in My Valice'' and later hits such as ''Strip'' and ''Desperate, but not Serious'', which were pretty controversial at the time), but they seem to have a wide variety of musical influence. They started out with the punk influence on their first album ''Dirk Wears White Sox''...and then branch out with the spanish/mexican influenced ''Los Rancheros'' and some almost ska-like songs with heavy brass and even try their hand (although not the greatest effort) at rap with ''Ant Rap''. While the last album represented on this compiliation, ''Vive le Rock'' was probably not as widely received, the lyrics are still unique as always and the music is different than anything of its time. Although this group is long gone and forgotten by many...I still love them! At one time, I had all of their albums on either LP or casette and, although I would like to have them ALL on CD...this album includes an excellent compiliation of their greatest efforts. I would DEFINATELY recommend this to any Adam Ant fan or music fan in general who just wants a taste of what Adam Ant was all about. While this group is often forgotten, they are still incredibly talented musicians!!!!!!
