The Human League gehören zu den herausragenden Protagonisten der elektronischer Musik. David Bowie sagte einst über die Band „I’ve seen the future of pop music“.

Im kommenden Jahr feiern The Human League ihr 40. Bandjubiläum. Zeit also für eine Werkschau mit allen wichtigen Veröffentlichungen der Briten. Natürlich sind auch die vielleicht bekanntesten Songs „Beeing Boiled“ und „Don’t You Want Me“ dabei.

Die „Anthology“ erscheint als Doppel-CD, 3xLP sowie limitierte 3CD/DVD Super Deluxe Box (Amazon). Die Box enthält insgesamt 30 Songs, unveröffentlichte DJ-Edits sowie exklusive und bisher unveröffentlichte Remixes. Auf der DVD befinden sich 21 Promovideos und 25 BBC-Auftritte.
