Joe Jackson - The Collection (2001) Retail CD
This 18-track compilation of Joe Jackson takes in a well chosen selection of his oeuvre from 1978's Look Sharp! to 1989's Laughter & Lust. Much more than a poor man's version of Elvis Costello, this selection demonstrates the multiple sides of Jackson- whether cool new wave synth pop, classical instrumental or jazz-fusion that made Sting's Dream of the Blue Turtles look very, very silly (indeed). Nice to see the album opening with 1987's Nocturne, prior to the likes of Is She Really Going Out With Him?, It's Different for Girls & Steppin' Out (the latter as cool and perfect pop as Hall & Oatesmore… Out of Touch, Carly Simon/Chic's Why? & Talk Talk's It's My Life- though not unlike Genesis' Turn it On Again. Apologies...). Songs like Mad at You and Friday are somewhere between cool new wave of The Knack & Costello's Armed Forces (with a hint of prime Squeeze). The rest is as wonderful, from the sublime ballad Be My Number Two (one to put on those Nick Hornby tapes between Fall on Me & Cuddle Up), the knowing Happy Loving Couples (hate 'em!) and the zen pop of You Can't Get What You Want (till you know what you want). This is a great selection of Jackson's works, my only doubt would be regarding the mastering which is a little poor in terms of sound quality. Apart from that, this is the Joe Jackson album for every home!
