LOOK OF LOVE: THE VERY BEST OF ABC skims off the tastiest cream by this early- 1980s synth-pop band. Drawing from old-school R&B, the New Romantic movement, and (for singer Martin Fry, in particular) the innovations of '70s glam crooners Bryan Ferry and David Bowie, ABC forged a stylish--and often danceable--brand of pop in which saxophones and synthesised drums peacefully co-existed. Lesser-known cuts like the exotica-tinged "S.O.S". and later work like 2001's mid-tempo groover "Peace and Tranquility" prove the ensemble remarkably consistent in sound and songwriting.
Of course, it is the group's chart hits that stand out here, and for good reason. The collection's title cut, and "Poison Arrow" (an early MTV video sensation) are near-perfect pop songs. Likewise, the lilting electro-ballad "Be Near Me", the Smokey Robinson homage "When Smokey Sings" (which appropriates the riff from "Tears of a Clown"), and the catchy bounce of "How to Be a Millionaire" push all the right pleasure buttons. A winner as both a hits collection and a comprehensive career overview, LOOK OF LOVE is the definitive ABC disc to own.
