The much-delayed 10th album by Blondie is an admirable effort. It has been released with a second disc of re-worked versions of Blondie’s greatest hits. A radical take on Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s Relax, Sugar On The Side and a great duet with Beth Ditto on Rose By Any Name are the highlights. Two listens to the re-worked hits disc, though, was enough to tell me they should have left those classics alone.
