The Best of OMD is a compilation album by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, released in 1988. The record essentially delineates the group's experimental early years from their pop-oriented later work: side one features recordings from 1979–1984, while side two is drawn from the group's 1984–1988 efforts. It was a worldwide success, becoming a Top 5 hit across Europe and achieving 3x platinum sales in the United Kingdom and gold status in the United States.
is an excellent compilation of their polished music, starting out with less provocative material like the basic electronic wash of "Electricity" and the bare but ebullient fervor of "Enola Ga. As this set moves along, so does the craftiness of their work, which is evident on tighter sounding songs like "Tesla Girls" and "Locomotion," where the intricacy of their formula begins to take a more resounding shape.

With this album, OMD regained their commercial grounding following the poor reception and sales to their previous effort Dazzle Ships. It had a much slicker sound in contrast to Dazzle Ships's experimental nature, largely attributed to the band's acquisition of the Fairlight CMI digital sampling/sequencing workstation. The title track is an instrumental with heavy dub overtones and tape collages, "All Wrapped Up" is a calypso pop song, and "Talking Loud and Clear" features a soprano saxophone melody. The cover artwork was designed by Peter Saville.

it was the kind of song that if you hear it as a teenager in the throes of an unrequited crush you can get completely lost in the bittersweet sounds of the kind of longing and love that belongs exclusively to the movies.
