Album Review

Given that t.A.T.u. only had two albums to their name when The Best arrived in the fall of 2006, it might seem like it was a little early for a greatest-hits album — which is both true and untrue. For most acts, such a quickly arriving hits compilation would be a little premature, but by 2006 the duo's lesbianism shtick was not only exposed as nothing more than a marketing gimmick, but they had also parted ways with their label, Interscope, which meant that their act was outdated and that they no longer had the support of a major label, so it was the perfect time to chronicle the half-decade where they were a Europop sensation. The Best does this exhaustively, offering up the hits — "All the Things She Said," "Not Gonna Get Us," "How Soon Is Now," "Friend or Foe," "All About Us," plus the new single "Gomenasai" — plus a bunch of remixes and some album tracks. Since a little t.A.T.u. can go a long way, it's best to get all the big hits in one place; the rest of the record might still be filler even on a hits disc, but at least it has all the big songs, which The Best certainly does, and that should satisfy any listener who considers the Russian duo a guilty pleasure.

t.A.T.u.'s Best Finally Here...!!!(Part Of It)

After exactly one year of releasing their second album "Dangerous and Moving", t.A.T.u. comes back with a greatest hits collection. When I heard of this collection I was really confused, how can t.A.T.u., a band that has only released 2 albums, be able to release a greatest hits collection? As far as I'm concerned I thought you needed four to five albums to release a greatest hits collection, but I guess I was wrong. This collection gathers 20 (15 on iTunes) t.A.T.u. songs; 6 of which were released as singles; 2 from t.A.T.u.'s first album "200 KM/H In The Wrong Lane"; 4 from their second album "Dangerous and Moving"; 3 un-released remixes, the Russian Versions of "Not Gonna Get Us" and "All The Things She Said"; and 3 un-released tracks. It is quite amazing that t.A.T.u. came up with this track list. It truly gathers the best of the best. From the number one hits "All The Things She Said" and "All About Us" to the amazing "Not Gonna Get Us"(not included on iTunes Version) and the cover from The Smiths - "How Soon is Now?"(not included on the iTunes Version). "Friend Or Foe" and "Gomenasai" are pretty good, even thought their promotion was not very good, the songs manage to be great singles. The mixes from "Cosmos (Outer Space)" and "Craving (I Only Want What I Can't Have)" are flawless, each with their unique touch. "30 Minutes"(not included on the iTunes Version), "Show Me Love"(not included on the iTunes Version) and "Perfect Enemy" were always great song, which didn't make the cut for a single release, but are powerful enough to make it to this collection. The new single "Loves Me Not" was always one of my favorites from "Dangerous and Moving"; it is a hard rock/pop/dance track, with simple, but powerful lyrics. Now, the unreleased tracks ("Null and Void", "Divine" and "Ne Ver Ne Boysia Ne Prosi"(not included on the iTunes Version) are each very different. "Null and Void" is the English version of "Obienzianka Nol", I think they did a great job on this one, I always loved "Obienzianka Nol" and wondered if it would be a mistake to translate it to English, and to my surprise, it wasn't. The lyrics are as cold and dark as the Russian version and it's meaning it's very powerful. "Divine" is nothing special, but somehow I like it. The only word on the song is divine, which could get a little annoying after some spins, but actually you want more and more. It's like nothing you've ever heard before. "Ne Ver Ne Boysia Ne Prosi" is t.A.T.u.'s Eurovision song from 2003. The song was once released in t.A.T.u.'s How Soon Is Now? CD-Single. The song is actually really good, even though it is in Russian it gets to you, it's very catchy. I could have not thought of a better collection than this. This is for me, as far, if not the best, one of the best compilations ever. It is a shame that iTunes does not include the original version which contains 20 songs, but they really should think about it, for now on look out for t.A.T.u. next album in 2007. Add this to your collection and enjoy it. Believe me; you won't be disappointed.

Great Vocals

These girls have amazing, strong voices. Their songs are catchy, upbeat, and fun to dance to.

t.A.T.u. is amazing

t.A.T.u. is absolutely one of my favorite groups of all time. I love the songs "All About Us" and "Loves Me Not", which both have a rock/pop feel to them. My least favorite songs are "How Soon Is Now?" and "Divine." They both probably have about 50 words in the whole song and they just repeat the same lyrics over and over again to get a 3 1/2 minute song. There are some songs that aren't on here from their first English album, 200 Km/h in the Wrong Lane, that I really think should be on this album. They are "Stars" and the EXTENDED version of "Show Me Love." Only the radio edit is on here. But overall, this is just great! I can't wait for their new album in 2007!
