The Best of Siouxsie and the Banshees is a decent look into the eclectic world of Siouxsie Sioux. The band, however, really didn't need to release another hits collection. Once Upon a Time: The Singles (1981) and Twice Upon a Time: The Singles (1992) are comprehensive enough to stand alone. Universal aimed to make this a stylish set with glossy favorites such as "Dear Prudence," "Peek-a-Boo," and "Spellbound," but lesser-known classics like "Candy Man" and "Dazzle" are missing.

While some of their best has been omitted, this is a fine selection of some of the greatest songs by one of the greatest bands ever. The remastering have done each and every track on this album complete justice, especially Israel, making Steven Severin's bass exude such smoothness and giving way to the stark sound of sleigh bells in the background, Christine and Happy House, both of which Budgie's masterful pang at percussion from a ting of a hi-hat to a pound of a snare, and Hong Kong Garden. But mostly, it delivers Siouxsie's unique voice in the most incredible way. From a howl to a cantique, no one can top her in respect to fusing both elements into one. This album is definitly a must. It includes the rare gem Dizzy and the rest, you'll listen to with new ears
