Where do you start with these guys? My first Simple Minds album was New Gold Dream which is another must have.I picked this CD up trying to fill the gaps and really liked it. They have so many different sounds and styles and they are all here (except for New Gold Dream. Their is a different version of Promised You a Miracle which is great with a little more bounce. Just about any person who grew up in the 80's would like this CD as their is something for everyone here. There newer material on disc two was somewhat more mellow but works great at dinner or on a roadtrip. I have a ton of respect for these guys as their songs shaped my childhood and made me feel good. 5 star all the way!!

"best of simple minds" is an effective double cd collection that covers all of band's most important tracks up to around year 1999. i enjoyed it and it made me get their other albums. i think it is a perfect album for someone who knows only few simple minds songs and wants to know their music better.
from the cold new wave sound up to warm and emotional pop-rock Simple Minds remained a fresh band that has their own recognizable sound. of course they had some weaker spots ("biko" sounds much better in Peter Gabriel's version,and what the heck is the last track?) but who is perfect? even the lack of presence of some tracks doesn't change the fact that it is the best and most ineresting Simple Minds collection avaible.

I agree with all of the other reviewers that this is a great compilation of one of my all-time favorite 80s bands, but where is "New Gold Dream?" If it's a greatests collection, this band's greatest tune is missing. Listen to Flashbackalternatives.com for more great Simple Minds tunes.

This album captures the distinctively mellifluent, textured, Kraftwerk-inspired new wave sound that Simple Minds made their own in the 80s. "Glittering Prize", "Waterfront", "Promised You A Miracle", "All The Things She Said" (a damn site better than that awful TATU record of the same name), "Don't You Forget About Me", all those early classics are here.
If this record does have any shortcomings, it's that it features too much of the political dirge from the late 80s/early '90s era, when they briefly lost their way. The second disk, however, does feature "She's A River" and "Hypnotised" from their renaissance in 1995, when they dramatically returned to form.
Given that they released the dreadful covers album Neon Lights a couple of months prior to this compilation, it looked as though they'd finally gone to the point of no return, so the timing of the release of The Best Of Simple Minds could't have been better - reminding folks about what a great act they weree in their heyday.

By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on May 14 2003
Format: Audio CD
Disc One of this retrospective is more interesting than the second disc which draws on the period from the late 1980s onwards when Simple Minds were losing their edge. My favourites remain the atmospheric eurosynth number I Travel, another early one Life In A Day, the hypnotic Love Song plus the megahits Don't You Forget About Me, Promised You A Miracle and Glittering Prize. Their distinctive sound merged atmospheric synths with a kraftwerk-like beat and were very cinematic and evocative. Unfortunately the decline is all too apparent on the second disc where the synths meander aimlessly amongst the political sloganeering. So if you're a fan, get this for Disc One to have all their greatest hits together.

This is indeed the best compilation of my all time favorite band Simple Minds. This is a double CD packed with all their hits that you are familiar with in the 80s and 90s.
You could not ask for more! From "Don't you forget about me" to "Mandela Day" each song is a piece of art.
Simple Minds rule!
A Must!
