5.0 out of 5 stars New Wave Education Oct. 8 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For those looking for a primer in the new wave era of the 80's, here's a band that provided the key foundations. A compilation of their four or so albums, this band left the new wave era too soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars What took me so long? July 30 2004
By krista
Format:Audio CD
I've explored and like lots of types of music including synth pop, punk, techno and trance, folk, ethnic, disco, psychedelic, classic rock, classical, medieval, 40's swing, and alternative country, but my first musical love is 80's new wave, the music I grew up with, influenced by the disco and popular music of the 70's. I'm just rediscovering it now. I just got this album and think it's great. I recognize many of the songs from my youth growing up in Canada, and find the Spoons are a first rate new wave band.
They've sensitively placed a short instrumental as an opener piece, which sets the stage nicely for Novaheart. Novaheart is a smashing song with it's encompassing synths and swathe of angelic female vocals, walking basslines, dancey percussion and the deep, smooth vocals of lead singer Gordon Deppe, likenable to Philip Oakey of Human League perhaps. Fans of groups like Flock of Seagulls, Human League, Duran Duran, and Eurythemics will likely also like the Spoons. All tracks are quality stuff, though "Tell no Lies" is a little on the perky side. Overall the album has a darkish, artfull, thoughtfull feel, and is over all too soon for me. I'm just sad it took me so long to buy an album by them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect April 8 2009
By Paul
Format:Audio CD
Sadly most of the Spoons catalog has been deleted but this greatest hits package will give you an excellent sampleing of their music during the "Ready Records" years . Considered by many (myself included) the greatest Canadian New band of all time, this collection is absolutley perfect. The Spoons are one of those rare bands that never released a bad song and as such this collection could have easily been turnned in to a two CD set, there is no fill on this album at all. From their earlier material like "Red Light",and "Nova Heart" to their later more pop oriented chart topping hits like "Tell No Lies" and "Old Emotion this CD is a must have for any fan of the New Wave genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally on C"D"! March 5 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Spoons was, without the shadow of a doubt, the best canadian's pop group of the eighties.Despite several great singles and albums, they did not have the chance to make it big elsewhere in the world. A shame!This compilation brings back some good memories and is a must for people who loved new wave and pop music from the early eighties. I say "early" because there is nothing on this C.D. after 1983. It probably means that the record company couldn't put the material published elsewhere after that. It's sad news because the other 3 albums the Spoons made are as good as the first 3.Nevertheless,some of their greatest hits are here: Nova heart, Tell no lies, Romantic traffic,Old emotions. I personnaly think that a few songs shouldn't be there: Talk back,Conventionnal beliefs, Nova heart (entended mix). Songs from the L"P' "Arias and symphonies" (surely one of the top five albums of this decade) would have made a better choice: No electrons, A girl in two pieces, South american vacation. But forget this questionnable selection!It is a good way to keep in touch with 80's and with a genius songwriter, Gordon Deppe.
3.0 out of 5 stars 80's British style alternative music Jan. 5 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This band is from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. I first heard of them back in the early 80's when I lived in Dublin, Ireland. They had a big hit with one of their songs, I cant think what it was called now. They are a very good band and well worth checking out this c.d if you like 80's music. I now live in Oakville, Ontario and have bumped into the lead singer of the spoons a few times in the bar scene. He now is with a band called curios...they are quite good but only a pub band
4.0 out of 5 stars Fan of the 80's? Get this CD... July 1 1999
By Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Well, even though I was 4/5 years old when these songs were hits, I did remember some of them, when hearing them on a local music station (MuchMusic) on afternoon. When I couldn't get their biggest hit (Nova Heart) out of my head, I thought I'd go buy the greatest hits CD. Well to my surprise, I actually ended up loving the whole CD! I think this CD is a must for anyone who calls themself a fan of 80's music.
