25: The Very Best of a-ha

by: a-ha

Released to celebrate the band’s 25th anniversary, the double-disc 25: The Very Best of a-ha is not for the casual listener. At 39 tracks, it is quite exhaustive, so anybody thinking that there was no more to the band than “Take on Me” will likely grow restless, but those fans who have stuck with the band through a quarter century will find this to be a worthy tribute, as it mixes up the expected -- “Take on Me,” “The Sun Always Shines on TV,” “Scoundrel Days,” “Crying in the Rain” -- with the unexpected in the form of several exclusive single remixes and DJ edits. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
