Entertainment Reviews:

Q - 12/92, p.146
4 Stars - Excellent - "...30 years on, the entire Phil Spector canon still sounds pretty damn good...hearing 'Uptown' and Spector's other masterpieces now is almost orgasmic..."
NME (Magazine) - 11/28/92, p.30
8 - Excellent - "...Everyone from Andrew Loog Oldham to Vanessa Paradis have vainly attempted to recreate the Spector style. Everyone from the Walker Brothers to The Ramones have covered these tunes. But here they are in their unparalleled, untouchable, shivering brilliance..."

Product Description:

The Crystals: Lala Brooks, Barbara Alston, Darlene Love, Pattie Wright (vocals).
Recorded at Mira Sound Studios, New York, New York and Gold Star Studios, Los Angeles, California.
Includes liner notes by David Hinckley.
This best-of collection features 13 all-time favorite hits by The Crystals.
The Crystals were a crucial cog in Phil Spector's mighty girl-group machine. To listen to "And Then He Kissed Me" is to hear the precise pop moment when coy innocence crumbled and gave way ever so slightly to the adult onrush of carnality. The sugary vocals of Darlene Love and company, backed by the full-scale Spector sound, are almost girlish enough to make you believe that the pattern of pop music hadn't just been irrevocably stirred up. However, the cumulative effect of the aforementioned song--along with the curiously sadomasochistic overtones of the Goffin/King smash "He Hit Me (It Felt Like a Kiss)" and the bad-boy adulation of "He's a Rebel"--should be more than enough to mark the musical history being made here.
