"OMD was probably one of the most overlooked bands of the early 80's. They hit it big with 'So in Love' and 'If You Leave', but before then were many albums of unsurpassed orginality. Many of those songs are captured here. Many versions are equal to their studio counterparts, but some are even better. 'Annex' and 'The More I See You' fair very well and the version of one of their early hits, 'Enola Gay', is in my opinion, better than the original. This is a great disc for anyone who appreciates OMD's unique music. Most of these songs are 20 years old, yet they still sound great. This is a must-have for any fan!"
"OMD has always been one of my favorite bands since I bought their first two albums around 1980. This is the era before OMD "hit it big" on the US Top 40 charts; the era in which they were the most creative and new. The musical selections here are right on target for what they were doing during these early years. It's nice to get the rarely heard "Annex." This has a very pleasant version of the beautiful "Of All The Things We've Made" as well as two other songs from their ground-breaking "Dazzle Ships" album. It is interesting to see how far ahead of their time they really were. Most OMD fans already realize that. This collection just proves it even more."
