Great collection of the Pretenders hits from 1979 to 1999 and documentary
17 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cool, funny, strange, interesting, entertaining, and strong music just like the Pretenders. A non-chronological collection of the Pretenders greatest hits videos for 20 years. It begins with "Brass in Pocket" and ends with "I'll Stand By You," including videos for "Talk of the Town," "Message of Love," "Human," "Kid," and the ultra-I'm a cool rock star video, "Night In My Veins." The 45-minute documentary, "No Turn Left Unstoned" is as irreverent and interesting as the band and the title. It's a bit confusing and disjointed at times but always cool and colorful, metaphorically speaking. U2's Bono interviews Chrissie Hynde at short moments throughout the documentary, and their conversation seems a bit awkward but we can forgive them that because they're Bono and Chrissie Hynde. If you've seen the videos aired over the years and the documentary on television, it is still a great rock collection to own or watch. I've worn my copy out!
