I'd have to disagree with the prior review - it's a great overview of the most well-known, earlier albums of Tori's career. Sure, some tracks have been remixed or re-recorded, but that just makes it a unique collection even for long-time fans and collectors. Regardless of your personal opinion about the Professional Widow remix, it was her only UK no. 1 hit, and does have a place in her history (as well as being an extremely recognizable mid-90s dance hit) - though it does sound out of place next to her other tracks. Overall this is a nice way to get introduced to Tori, for those who don't feel the pull to "start" by immediately jumping into her first 5 albums simultaneously, even with the inevitable missed and debatable inclusions.

All tracks remixed or re-recorded. The remix version of "Professional Widow" is plain awful. Stay away from this release and get the single discs instead
