This is one band that is totally underrated. The darkness of the lyrics, simple and easy messages in all its bitter lustful and lonely sounding songs.

I have introduced numerous friends to this band and this album gives a good broad run of the bands music.

The The music is music you go back to again and again and each time you will hear something new. If you have ever wavered and wondered whether to get some of their music, get this. This should then lead you to realise what you have been missing and get the rest of their history.

I cannot recommend them any higher.

Having been a fan for over twenty years of this magnificent 'band', I was pleased to learn that this, a singles retrospective was to be released featuring all the singles from the early eighties through to the singles releases from The The's latest album 'Naked Self'.
Matt Johnson (the man behind The The) was, and is, a musical genius. He is the master of creating perfect pop songs, with lyrics and music that blow away the term 'pop', and leave you wondering why such masterful creations didn't elevate him to superstar status (not that he ever craved such a status).
The first track, Uncertain Smile, was lauded as one of the singles of the year when it came out in the early eighties. With Matt's blistering lyrics and music, the song builds and builds, and just when you think it is reaching its final crescendo, Mr. Jools Holland, keyboard virtuoso, treats you to four minutes of THE best piano music you are ever likely to hear. An excellent track and one to play to your friends to prove that the eighties were more than just blokes in make up and spandex trousers.
Track 2, Perfect, does what it says on the tin. A marvelous slice of perfect pop, which was originally a single release, but only released on the cassette version of 'Soul Mining' (The The's second album release) so is a welcome addition here.
Track 3, Sweet Bird Of Truth, is from 'Infected (The The's third album) and is a dig at the 'bomb first, ask questions later' brigade. Quite prophetic as twenty years later things have probably changed for the worse, not the better in this respect. An excellent track, making you feel that you are the pilot on this mission, and blood will soon be on your hands....

If you have heard or seen any THE THE over the years and want to see what all the fuss is about them, then this is a good introduction to them. For anyone interested in remixes there is another version of this collection with remixes (worth getting if you have an interest in remixes).
