The Best of the Motels

Since The Best of the Motels, released in 2003, contains the Motels' biggest hits -- "Only the Lonely" and "Suddenly Last Summer" -- it is all that the average casual fan of the band will want, but it is only a ten-track budget compilation that has neither the breadth nor the presentation of 2005's Essential Collection. In fact, nearly every other Motels compilation (including 2002's Classic Masters and 1990's No Vacancy: The Best of the Motels) has this one beat in terms of value. The charting singles "Little Robbers" and "Forever Mine" are not included here, so the compilers made some poor choices.

Wow, it's so great to listen to a group from the 80's, such a golden decade, and The Motels are still just as exciting now. The recent and current batch of Pop Divas can thank Martha Davis for getting the ball rolling. Such a sexy voice and a great band to back here up. You won't be dissappointed with their hits, especially Danger, Total Control and Shame, along with there top hits, Suddenly, Last Summer and Only the Lonely.

This is definetly an album that deserves a 5 star score. I loved this song since I was 7 and I'm 13 right now. So you can tell that I am an old-school listener. This albums has some pretty impressive songs and my favorite one is 'Suddenly Last Summer' its breath taking you'll love this song and album.

Just the sound of Martha Davis in Total Control and Only the Lonely will just completely blow you away. This album is worth all the stars in the world.
