Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 11/3/95, p.66
"...any reissue with 'Career Of Evil' and later-period, power-gliding hits like 'Don't Fear The Reaper' and 'Burnin' For You' still belongs in any pop-metalhead's collection."
- Rating: B+
Q - 1/96, p.143
4 Stars - Excellent - "...Blue Oyster Cult were the first American heavy metal band and their curious blend of ditch-water dull pub rock (initially), lyrical curveballs (all the time) and musical sophistication (later) ensured them respectable American success..."

All the Blue Oyster Cult you'll ever need? Well, yeah, more or less; this two-CD chronologically arranged best-of gathers most of the band's best material from the period between 1972 and 1986. The Cult has always been something of an anomaly--brainier and quirkier than most metal bands, and unafraid to take chances, as witnessed on the potentially disastrous live version of the MC5's "Kick Out the Jams" included here. The second CD, which kicks off with "Don't Fear the Reaper," and moves on to the group's poppier material, is marginally less interesting than the first CD's mutant sci-fi metal, but no matter--taken as a whole this is a first-rate career retrospective.
