Album Review

This budget-priced import collection from Polygram International features 17 tracks from stylish English new wave outfit ABC. Like most ABC compilations, Hello! An Introduction to ABC includes the group's two biggest international hits, "Poison Arrow" and "Look of Love," along with a handful of lower charting singles. What sets it apart from the others is the inclusion of nine tracks that never made it on to any previous domestic releases, including "Love's a Dangerous Language," "King Money," "Unzip," "Bite the Hand," "One Day," "Avenue Z," "Minneapolis," and "I'm In Love with You." That said, fans just looking for the radio hits would be better off with 2001's Look of Love: The Very Best of ABC.
