Released toward the end of the group's run on Arista, Greatest Mixes: The Best of the Thompson Twins really functions more as a retrospective than remix album. 1980s stutter vocal, used most famously in Duran Duran's "Reflex. Since there are at least five other Thompson Twins anthologies (including another remix album), Greatest Mixes isn't essential. But it's not bad for the casual fan, either, offering precious little depth and most of the band's hits. Of these, "Lay Your Hands on Me" might stand as most memorable. Sounding like the Smiths - if the Smiths were a Culture Club cover band - the track approximates the gospel-flavored mirth of Madonna's "Like a Prayer" with its undeniable chorus.

Thompson Twins The Best Of Thompson Twins - Greatest Mixes German CD album. 1. In The Name Of Love (88 Remix). I've always immensely enjoyed the Thompson Twins. Even though they were extremely "poppy," they had a fun sound which really worked for the time they were most prevalent. This disc does NOT do justice to the group. While some of the songs come away sounding as good as or better than the original most didn't receive that help. Fortunately I had already owned a bunch of their albums (yes, albums) and wasn't too disheartened by this
