Pretenders has been named one of the best albums of all time by VH1 In , Rolling Stone ranked the album number on its list of the greatest albums of all time , maintaining the rating in a revised list.
In , Slant Magazine listed the album at 64 on its "Best Albums of the s". Pretenders was remastered and re-released in and included a bonus disc of demos, B-sides and live cuts, many previously unreleased. Pretenders was also reissued in by Audio Fidelity as a limited-edition audiophile gold CD, using the original master tapes.
However, this remaster suffered from unauthorized, heavy limiting supposedly applied after engineer Steve Hoffman 's digital master was created and approved for CD manufacturing.
The song "The Phone Call" is missing some of the telephone effects on this release because the effects were "flown in" after the master was completed for the song and, as a result, weren't on the original master tape. A shortened version of "Tequila" would be performed nearly 15 years later on the Last of the Independents. A cover version of "Brass in Pocket" and the master version of "Precious" are available as downloadable content for Rock Band.

Chrissie Hynde has a unique and fabulous voice and, as a huge fan of Jim Kerr and Simple Minds, she has always held a fascination for me as the ex-Mrs Kerr/5().
