The Motels' volume of Capitol's Classic Masters series does an excellent job of summarizing the group's hit-making peak in the early '80s. Not only are their big hits "Only the Lonely," "Shame," and "Suddenly Last Summer" here, so are MTV favorites like "Take the L" and select album tracks, plus a nice representation of their nervy, early days as an underground L.A. new wave band. In addition to this, leader Martha Davis contributes the track-by-track liner notes and the sound is first-rate, making this arguably the best Motels hits package assembled to date.
