Product Description & Reviews
From being at the crest of the New Wave to anticipating the swing revival by over a decade, Joe Jackson's always been a "step" ahead of the pop music world, and this 38-track collection includes all the key tracks from his A&M releases (plus four post-A&M tracks) with 24-bit remastering and detailed liner notes derived from an interview with the man himself! Includes Is She Really Going Out with Him?; Sunday Papers; Steppin' Out; Breaking Us in Two; You Can't Get What You Want (Till You Know What You Want); Happy Ending; Look Sharp!; It's Different for Girls; Fools in Love; Be My Number Two; Right and Wrong, and more. The two-CD Steppin' Out trawls the recorded career of an ambitious artist whose work has ranged from reggae-inflected new wave to classical crossover. Cosmopolitan even at his most punky, former Royal Academy of Music student Joe Jackson found his greatest success with Night and Day, a blend of pop and Latin flavors that produced highly memorable tracks such as this retrospective's title song, "Another World," and "Breaking Us in Two." That very sophistication, however, has often proven the downfall of some Jackson discs and ultimately blurred his musical identity beyond the focus that, say, Elvis Costello has maintained through many stylistic shifts. Even powerful early music--such as several cuts from 1980's dub-wise Beat Crazy--is marred by sledgehammer irony, while excerpts from later albums are anything from tastefully bland to downright irritating. --Rickey Wright

Pump up the volume! No single phrase captures the sound of the 1980's better. Big, loud, bold, and brash - even the ballads had power! The 80's were the last golden era of Top 40 radio. This was a magic time when the best music was also the music that filled America's airwaves. Artists like Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, U2 & Prince were at the absolute zenith of their commercial careers, but that was only half the story. What made radio in the '80s so irresistible were the unexpected,

Founded in 1978, Echo & The Bunnymen are one of the truly seminal bands of the '80s. In fact, their swirling kaleidoscope of post-punk brooding, Doors-inflected psychedelia, and dreamlike textures sealed their reputation as one of the most influential groups of the last two decades. Between 1980 1987, the original lineup Ian McCulloch (vocals), Will Sergeant (guitars), Les Pattinson (bass), and Pete de Freitas (drums) released five groundbreaking albums.

CD > POPULAR MUSIC > ROCK Some would argue that this is the last great Bowie album, and certainly his only great album of the '80s. While it lacked the bite of its punk brethren at the time, it appealed to some fans of that genre and to middle-of-the-road rockers as well. Muscular playing met with no-frills production, and the product as a whole was infused with a gloriously arty style. ''It's No Game (Part I)'' opens the album, and is sung in Japanese, and ''It's No Game (Part II)'' closes, in
