Album Review

Hard to believe, but Capitol's 2008 collection Idolize Yourself: The Very Best of Billy Idol is only the second Billy Idol hits album to be released in America, following the first — 2001's Greatest Hits — by just seven years. Greatest Hits weighed in at 16 tracks and Idolize Yourself spans 18, adding two OK new songs to the mix (the moody "John Wayne" and the ham-fisted "New Future Weapon"), swapping out a live acoustic "Rebel Yell" and a cover of Simple Minds' "Don't You (Forget About Me)" for the latter-day cuts "Speed" and "World Comin' Down," but otherwise this is built upon the same core 14 hits as Greatest Hits. This means that either compilation would serve the needs of most Idol fans well, but Idolize Yourself gets the edge, as the latter-day songs are just a bit better and it's also available in a deluxe edition with a DVD containing almost all of Billy Idol's music videos (two, "Hot in the City" and "Cradle of Love," are present in previously unreleased alternate cuts), which are essential to truly appreciating an artist whose fame was built in large part on his videos.

Save Your Money

Sounds like someone “Remastered” this on their Casio. I mean the first song has a major cut in it that my son could have made. Slice away without regard to what comes before or after. As for being “remastered, the master tapes must have really been crap if this is the best they could produce….OR, maybe, just maybe they remastered it them selves. Billy, sorry man…love the music but this was a waste of 10 bucks as I already have the songs…was hoping for higher quality. pfffffttttt. Next.

Who Remastered?

What a waste, the “Remastering” sounded like it was done by an intern that never seen a sound board before. It’s sloppy and uneven. The songs deserved to be done by someone that can do a decent job, this isn’t it. I never regret buying anything from ITunes but this time I regret spending even a penny on this. Sad, sad, sad. We should get our money back.

Along with Duran Duran, Billy Idol was one the first pop/rock artists to achieve massive success in the early '80s due to a then brand-new U.S. television network, MTV. Mixing his bad-boy good looks with an appealing blend of pop hooks, punk attitude, and a dance beats, Idol quickly rocketed to stardom, before hard living derailed his career and almost proved fatal. Born William Michael Albert Broad on November 30, 1955, in Middlesex, England, the youngster relocated with his family for a brief spell...
