Released by popular demand, 'The OMD Singles' included most of the group's popular songs that were released from 1979-1996. However, although the songs included are- as fans will expect- generally of the highest quality, the track listing isn't. Omissions of important songs in the group's career, such as 'Secret' (the group's second song to chart on the US Billboard Hot 100) and 'Red Frame/White Light' (their first single to chart in the UK, and a fan favourite) make it more of an extended version of the 1988 'Best of OMD' album, rather than a complete singles album, which would probably have been what the majority of fans would have preferred.
As a compilation album overall, this offers a good introduction to OMD- although nothing more than that. To really understand and appreciate their music fully, it is studio albums such as 'Architecture and Morality, 'Junk Culture' and 'Crush' that are essential to listen to
