Billy is Truly an Idol
Despite posing like a bad boy (whether he is or was really one, we don't know for sure), Billy Idol is a good singer and always had good intentions. His collection of tunes is one of the landmarks of the 80s, when music used to be more interesting in general than it is nowadays (with some exceptions, of course).
This 2001 compilation of "Greatest Hits" reunites not necessarily his best, but at least his best known songs. Classics such as "Mony Mony", "Rebel Yell" and "Cradle of Rock", as well as the ballads "Flash for Fantasy", "Eyes Without a Face" and "Sweet Sixteen" are here with 10 other tracks, including a nice Simple Minds cover of "Don't You (Forget About Me)", another classic of that decade.
All tracks are 24-bit digitally remastered for the very delight of every Pop Rock fan of the 80s.Read full review
