Thanks in part to Robert Palmer's hand in the process of compiling Addictions, Vol. 1, this early best-of is a fine peek into the musical passions that made Palmer tick. The 13 songs that make up the collection are mostly first-rate, and at the very least they present to a newcomer the eclecticism and style that made Palmer so consistently interesting. Since its genesis was 1989, the highlighted albums are Palmer's Island releases from 1978 to 1988: Double Fun, Secrets, Clues, Maybe It's Live, Pride, Riptide, Heavy Nova, and the soundtrack to Sweet Lies. Appropriately, the thundering, menacing "Some Like It Hot" from the Power Station's debut is included, though it's somewhat of a mystery as to why the band's T. Rex cover, "Get It On (Bang a Gong)," doesn't make an appearance. Only that song and "I Didn't Mean to Turn You On" seem like obvious omissions. The latter would appear on the remix-heavy Addictions, Vol. 2, but the former wouldn't appear on a career sampler until 1997's The Very Best of Robert Palmer. Otherwise, the collection is nearly perfect.

Pressure Drop is Robert Palmer's second solo album, released in 1975. Palmer is backed by Little Feat and other musicians. The title track is a cover version of the reggae hit by Toots & the Maytals. However, many other songs on the album use New Orleans funk … along with smooth, dated disco ballads smothered in strings. David Jeffries' review says that the album is considered too blue-eyed and polished for fans of Palmer's more gutsy moments but concludes that Pressure Drop has grown into the great overlooked album in Palmer's discography. The album peaked at #136 in the US.

The British singer-songwriter Robert Palmer got his big break as the original vocalist for pop-supergroup Power Station. In late 1985 Palmer released his hugely successful song "Addicted to Love". The video for "Addicted to Love" - with Palmer singing in the foreground and five Nagle-esque models dancing and pretending to play instruments in the background - caught the attention of the world and became and iconic symbol of 80s video art. This CD is an excellent overview of Robert Palmer's long career. (Another title for this CD is "Robert Palmer - Millennium Edition").
