This aptly titled compilation of Shed Sevens' greatest hits is the one to buy if you only intend to have one of their albums in your collection.

Although Oasis and Blur (both bands of which I love) dominated the Britpop music scene, Shed 7 were always very popular back in the day. As the informative CD booklet states: the band scored more top 30 singles in 1996 than anybody else.

All of the band's hit singles from 1994-1998 are collected, including the famous title track which was played to death at the Olympics, and other radio friendly tunes like 'Getting Better', 'On Standby' and the beautiful 'Chasing Rainbows'. Two tracks that you possibly might not recognise are the funky 'Disco Down' (although it was released as a single off the back of this album and peaked at no.13 in 1999) and 'High Hopes', both were new songs especially for this collection. Also, the band re-recorded their debut hit 'Dolphin' and early album track 'Ocean Pie', and these new versions are included here.

With virtually every song a classic, 'Going For Gold' is a timeless reminder of one of the best, if somewhat now under-rated indie rock bands of the nineties.

Why do people see shed 7 as a poor mans Oasis? They make their own music and great it is too. I bought this album before seeing them live at leeds t+c club which remains the best gig i ever saw which was suprising to myself. There is not an average track on this album and there are some stunners too."Disco down","standby", "she left me..","where have u been tonight", "its gettin better", r all fantastic songs smoothed out by the melodic chasing Rainbows and high hopes. It backs these up with the Smiths-like "Mark" and great rythms such as bully boy, ocean pie and dolphin 69. Shed 7 were as good as oasis but shouldn't have been compared to them because that wasn't their aim.They made Progress never sold out and never deceeded like some bands id l like to mention. ONE OF MY BEST ALBUMS!

In fact nice one to all below. It is so good to read proper reviews about one of the best bands the UK has ever produced. You've got it in one about this is what you should have been listening to when the press were going ape over wonderwall (they should have given the Bluetones a listen too). This album covers so many good songs from the staple tracks like bully boy and disco down to true indie classics like on standby. Noel Gallagher slagged them off recently on the box so of course loads of people followed suit. It's brilliant that they have re-formed, I missed their last farewell gig so hopefully I'll catch them this time around. One of the best voices in the business backed by equally good musicians, I'm over the moon a proper Indie band are back to show these poxy heard one you've heard 'em all bands how it's done.

It was only recently that I saw Shed seven live, and after that I had to get their best of album Going for Gold. There are some fantastic songs in this album with the most notable being "Disco Down" and "Where have you been Tonight". Now that I have got the album, I can't stop playing it, they are truly the most underestimated band in Britain.

This is one of the true great Indie albums of all time. Every song is a classic. Although it was released a bit to early in their career, it does have 95% of their best work ever on it.
This album is a must for anybody wanting true Indie guitar rifts with excellent tunes

This music takes me back. Listened to it and couldn't believe how many song I knew. Not one of the biggest bands of the 90's compared to blur or oasis but with catchy songs and great guitar rifts, one of the best. Reliving my youth all over again.....

Format: Audio CD
For those of us who liked Britpop and saw beyond Blur V Oasis to thedelights of Pulp, Cast, Sleeper, Elastica and all sorts of other bandsmade up of one word, this album is going to bring flashbacks from leftright and centre.
From rock beasts like Getting Better and Dolphin to ballads like Ocean Pieand Chasing Rainbows, this is one of those Greatest Hits albums thatgenuinely deserves the title. Its one of those albums packed withsingalong tracks that make you say "Oh Yeah! I remember that one!" or "Didthey do this one too? I love this track!" and so on...
To get an idea of what everyone else was listening to in 1995 when BBCNews were obsessed with Wonderwall, buy this...
