They didn’t waste much time cashing in on Robert Palmer’s death with this 19-track compilation, complete with a short bonus DVD containing the infamous “Addicted To Love” video and a handful of others. If you’re a fan of Palmer’s bombastic ’80s style, you will approve of the selection. If you think Palmer’s best work came on the rootsier ’70s LPs he made with assistance from Little Feat and The Meters, then you’ll be disappointed. All the hits?and not much more.
