Latest & Greatest may sound like a typical "best-of" collection, but don't be fooled, these are new recordings of songs both familiar and under the radar. A cover of Led Zeppelin's "In the Light" starts things off, and it does little to dispel all of the "Zeppelin wannabe" talk that circulated around the band in their late-'80s heyday, as vocalist Jack Russell does a better Robert Plant than the man himself. Their three biggest hits, "Rock Me," "Once Bitten Twice Shy" and "Save Your Love" appear here as above average re-recordings, but fans looking for meat should stick with 2001's Greatest Hits collection. ~ James Christopher Monger
