Billy Idol seems to be the most irritating figure in rock for all of his caricatureish punk posing - however, he seems to be one of the funniest of post punk's characters... as a music craftsman, he fares even better; the less you see his naughty face, the songs get even better.

'Greatest Hits' for all of their anthology's worth undoubtedly grab listeners by their balls - but why should it stop there? While the first twelve songs respectfully grow inside you (especially the irresistable 'Eyes Without a Face', 'Sweet Sixteen' or 'To be a Lover'), clumsy renditions at the end of this compilation destroy the 'greatest' concept. From 'Dancing With Myself' all the way down to 'Cradle of Love', Billy remains truly vital without dropping particular bollocks.

Sadly 'bollocks' we hope to 'nevermind' (take one and only 'Flesh For Fantasy'), come ever after - 'LA Woman' fares so-so, but 'Shock to the System' is rather pathetic, pale copy of equally bad 'Speed' which, for some consolation, isn't included here at all. Continues a predictable filler, 'Rebell Yell' in its acoustic delivery sounding like a fine demonstration of Billy the entertainer, but the original is truly unecessary a beat down by such 'live and acoustic' weak arrangement.

The worst is the closing number, a cover of 'Don't You Forget About Me' (should we?) - a dreadful, pumped up attempt this side of Marilyn Manson. The only thing to thank Billy for is he did it first. Manson's execution would certainly sound much, much worse. And anyway, if 'LA Woman' and 'Don't You' are 'greatest hits' they certainly aren't Billy's to brag about.
