Shirley Bassey: Greatest Hits No stars How we rate: our writers tend to review music they like within their preferred genres.

Riding the tail end of her Propellerhead-ed revival and the never-ending revival of the Bond films, the sassy Ms. Bassey is back with a retrospective of her decades of well-dictioned themes. Bassey plays her trump cards and also bluffs a few hands on tunes ranging from her unrivaled 007 three-fer of "Diamonds are Forever," "Moonraker" and "Goldfinger," to splashy show tunes like "Big Spender" and attempts at pop coverage—like a note- and gender-bending take on The Beatles’ "Something" and a bluesy shuffle through The Doors’ "Light My Fire." In addition to her self-explanatory chart-topper "History Repeating," the collection also revamps the vamp’s career with some impressive remixes by The Propellerheads, awayTeam and Wild Oscar. Who knew "Love Story" could be so up-tempo?
