excellent value for money greatest hits
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 12/05/2008 13:14:05
With all the albums and various 'greatest hits' collections available what's the appeal of this particular release over other titles available for this early 80s synth duo. Now previously I had an audio cassette of the 1990 'Second Helpings' 'best of' album however although its also available on CD I feel that "The Platinum Collection" is a much more satisfying offering. Firstly there's a nice clear image of Neil Arthur and Stephen Luscombe starring out of the cover, always a good thing to show the band members whose work you've bought. Secondly the contents are pretty exhaustive with the eighteen tracks on offer having an entirely worthwhile, appealing 75 minutes. In amongst the tracks we have the Indian influenced "Vishnu" (a marvellously panoramic instrumental laced with occasional Hindi vocals) and the groups biggest hit "Living On The Ceiling" which has the same subcontinent feel albeit more focused and dance orientated. I love the majestic grandeur of "Waves", a restful composition that takes its time to wash over you. It seems that most successful groups are fans of Abba and Blancmange being no exception to this attempted, with in my opinion, some success to cover "The Day Before You Came" which is certainly a classy polished effort that is true to the original. When "What's Your Problem?" was first released as a single I really though Blancmange had sold out their hard edged synth credentials and whilst its atypical playful feel is a tad unsettling I guess it's a pivotal 'end of chart success' turning point in their career. The 'icing on the cake' to this CD collection is the price, such a worthy packed release for an extremely modest outlay. The only downsides over "Second Helpings" is that "The Platinum Collection" does not offer chart positions or single release artwork for the tracks that had individual commercial success. However these are minor blemishes on a marvellously comprehensive 'greatest hits' collection. If you want a definitive package highlighting the very best of 'Blancmange' then this is definitely the one for you!
