"This year, I have mainly been listening to...The Human League! Being an old Eighties New Romantic, the League are a band that have always been high in my consciousness, but until this summer I had seen them as being very much in the past. On summer holiday in North Wales, I came across their 2003 double album release of 'The Very Best of the Human League' in a chuck-out box, and it has been a constant on my car stereo ever since. This new collection of 'Original Remixes and Rarities' takes this retro feel a step deeper. It was great to hear again such classic b-sides as 'Hard Times', 'Non-Stop' and 'You Remind Me Of Gold' in particular, and to also have extended versions of some of their greatest singles on disc for the first time.
With the possible exception of the opening track, 'Being Boiled', a classic but a bit out of place to include here, this is a great compilation. There's always a long wait for new Human League albums, but this release will keep the many die-hard fans ticking over in the meantime."
"Personally, I've always wanted an extended version of Human, as the regular single is under 4 minutes. The version of the song on this collection is 5:05. I do like it. I just wish it was 10 minutes longer. Guess I'll have to get software and figure how to extend it (or just loop it with RealPlayer V.10!). The rest of the mixes on this CD are also good. Could it have been better? Sure. But as I paid under $8US for the disk, I have absolutely no complaints and feel that I got my money's worth! Four stars!"
"Many people waited years and years for this thing to come out. If only for The Sound Of The Crowd (12" Version) it is worth to buy. I must say that the track-listing isn't quite right here. I saw it on several other sites. Track 3 isn't Love Action (Instrumental Mix) but it's Hard Times (Instrumental Mix). Track 4 is Non-Stop (B-side of Open Your Heart), track 5 is Don't You Want Me (Special Extended Dance Mix), track 6 is Mirror Man (Extended Mix), track 7 is You Remind Me Of Gold (Mirror Man B-side), track 8 is (Keep Feeling) Fascination (Improvisation), track 9 is Total Panic (Fascination B-side), track 10 is The Lebanon (Extended), track 11 is Life On Your Own (Extended), track 12 is Together In Electric Dreams (Extended), track 13 is Human (Extended) and finally track 14 is Heart Like a Wheel (Extended). So, as you can see, there is no Love Action (Instrumental Mix), Open Your Heart (12"Version) or Love Is All That Matters (Jam & Lewis Mix). Instead of them, you'll get some really cool B-sides and remixes. "
