Album Review

For all intents and purposes, The Essential Bangles acts a replacement for 1990's Greatest Hits, as it features remastered sound and 90 percent of the same material. Like Greatest Hits, the disc contains 14 songs; the difference selection-wise is that "Live" (an All Over the Place album track) and "What I Meant to Say" (the B-side to "Eternal Flame") are included instead of "Where Were You When I Needed You" and "Everything I Wanted." This slight difference is of no substantial consequence. The disc strikes a good balance between the group's most popular moments and their brightest, with their range — from "Going Down to Liverpool" to "Hazy Shade of Winter" to "Walk Like an Egyptian" (the unfortunate novelty hit) — put on display. You are strongly encouraged to verbally throttle anyone who refers to "Manic Monday" as anything less than pure bliss.

In the process, they became one of the handful of all-female bands of the '80s to win both critical and commercial success. The critical success came first -- with their self-titled debut EP and full-length album, All Over the Place -- and popular success arrived once they polished their sound, added some synthesizers, and deviated slightly from their trademark jangling...
