I don't think that they have declined at all. They have produced some
brilliant stuff in recent years and have really developed, not just churning
out carbon copies of their earlier glories like other artists. I love
both "Nightlife" and "Release" as well as "Closer To Heaven". And although I
wasn't crazy about "Bilingual" at first, I have now fallen in love with that
If you're referring to chart success, well they haven't had a number one for a
while but they still manage to chart with all their singles. While it may not
be as high as it used to be, it is still quite respectable.
I love the Pop and Art distinction. Lets face it, chronological is boring in
its predictability and the Boys never like to be predictable. What I like is
that they have chosen the distinctions between the songs themselves which makes
it more personal, rather than some boring record company exec. I also like the
fact that the Boys chose their favourite mixes.
I will definitely be getting the limited edition album. It may not have much
per se for fans but it's a greatest hits package so what does one expect? This
is for the masses. But as far as greatest hits packages go, it has had a lot
more thought gone into it.
The only thing I would have liked was "Absolutely Fabulous" and "Was It Worth
It" but if they had run out of room then I guess those are the two that had to
go. I hope the videos for those two are on the DVD.
My two cents worth. :-)
