As one might expect, ABC's entry in Universal's 20TH CENTURY MASTERS collection of budget hits compilations leans heavily on the group's stunning 1982 debut, THE LEXICON OF LOVE. Four of the collection's 11 songs come from that album, and a fifth is the relatively rare B-side "Theme from Mantrap," a vampy, cocktail-style piano-and-vocal recasting of the hit "Poison Arrow."
The remainder of this functional compilation is filled out by the two best tracks from the uneven Roxy Music-style follow-up, BEAUTY STAB, including the lovely, LEXICON-esque single "S.O.S.," plus three more cuts from 1985's HOW TO BE A ZILLIONAIRE. These are highlighted by a hi-NRG remix of the dancefloor-destined "Vanity Kills," and the group's last American hit, 1989's ultra-slick "When Smokey Sings." 20TH CENTURY MASTERS is directed more towards the hit-oriented casual listener, but the inclusion of "Theme From Mantrap," making its US CD debut, is a nice gesture to fans.
