    Spin (1/99, pp.116-118) - 9 (out of 10) - "...[OMD's] pitiless singles compilation is kind of inspiring. It suggests that fabulous constructions never die--they just end up occupying space in our pop landscape like great buildings..."
    Entertainment Weekly (12/11/98, pp.80-81) - "Not as witty as the Pet Shop Boys, as kinetic as Yazoo, or as melodramatic as Soft Cell, OMD did help birth the concept of the synth-pop duo, and at their best...sounded like a cross between Bobby Vinton and Kraftwerk..." - Rating: B

    Though their albums were fully absorbing pieces of work that contained concise songs and atmospheric textures in equal measure, O.M.D. were regarded by many as being primarily a singles group. In the early 1980s, the groundbreaking British synth-pop duo churned out a bucketload of UK hits, each more accessible and unforgettable than the last. The low-budget electric piano that carries the main riff of "Electricity" hints at the band's lo-fi beginnings, and some of the early songs ("Enola Gay," "Messages"), while attractively melodic, still bear a trace of post-punk urgency. As they moved along, however, Andy McCluskey and Roger Humphreys became (momentarily) more experimental (the unconventional, ethereal pop of "Souvenir") and progressively more lush and stylized. Such later singles as "If You Leave" and "(Forever) Live and Die" suggest a summit meeting of Phil Spector, Depeche Mode, and AVALON-era Roxy Music. Decades down the line, the tunes collected on THE OMD SINGLES make it clear why these two lads from Liverpool were among the most memorable, substantive acts of the synth-pop era.
