This posthumous greatest hits compilation is a more than serviceable collection of this L.A. new wave combo's best moments, which were nearly always on their singles. Skipping non-chronologically around, the album includes everything from their loopy 1980 debut "I Like Boys" and the stunning early single "Mental Hopscotch" to early-MTV powerhouses like "Destination Unknown" and "Words."
Later, less commercially viable tunes like the excellent pop-rocker "Right Now" and the commercially minded "I Can't Think About Dancing" are also well represented. THE BEST OF MISSING PERSONS reminds all but the most anti-'80s folks that for all the adverse criticism this band took during their career, they were actually pretty terrific.
