Not for "background music". In a pensive mood, these 4 discs are excellent - from the problems of famine, trade injustice, the lack of support for AIDS sufferers, there is also the more upbeat, and slightly comical song. My favourites would be Harvest moon, Attitude Chicken, Great Song of Indifference and In the Pouring Rain. I was lucky to catch his Dublin gig in December 2005 - don't miss him if he's playing in your neck of the woods - he's an entertainer, and a man I have the utmost respect for!

I saw Bob Geldof live in Dubai last week-end and was elated to discover one of the most talented musicians out there. The variety and richness of the music, the strength and attitude of the songs, the sharp-edges he still has at his tender age. It was sheer joy to discover this man's music simply beyond Mondays and Rat Trap. This full pack of CDs is his solo work which I would argue is as powerful as Boomtown Rats. Keep the music going Bob, love it.

Bob Geldof will forever be known for his work in the fight to free people of the World from poverty, hunger and injustice, yet he is also an incredibly entertaining musician. Scream in Vain, Harvest Moon and Pouring Rain are my favourites in this compilation, they are so passionate about hunger, and the AIDS epidemic. I was lucky to see him live during his Winter 2005 tour, he turned the political tide and performed like a "Rat" and that's why I went to see him. This compilation is suited to all age groups, not just for us 30 somethings, Geldof is first and foremost a musician and it's that, we should remember when he takes on World leaders! Keep writing Bob, good music never dies!

There Ain't No Rearview Mirror In My Car. 27 Jan 2006
By Jason Stein - Published on Amazon.com
I can't believe no one has written a review on this compilation yet! Bob Geldof's solo work is great--he's a lyrical poet and musical shapeshifter all in just four short albums.

This package has all four of his solo albums digitally remastered with bonus tracks. The only shame is that no one thought of remixing it into 5.1 surround sound! That would have been awesome.

Deep In The Heart Of Nowhere (1986): I saw the video for "This Is The World Calling" on MTV (Yes, when they used to play videos) in November 1986. I got this on cassette for my 14th birthday. The version of "This Is The World Calling" on that cassette is different from the cd versions, but not by much. This is my favorite Geldof album and it sounds fantastic digitally remastered. The track order on the cassette was different from the track order on the original cd and this remastered version. I always kind of liked the sequencing of the cassette and the version of "This Is The World Calling" on it as well. Standout tracks include "I Cry Too", "When I Was Young", "This Heartless Heart", "The Beat Of The Night", "Night Turns To Day" and "August Was A Heavy Month". The four bonus tracks are okay and do not detract from the rest of the album.

The Vegetarians Of Love (1990): I got this on cd when it was released in August 1990 (I Think). A major music style shift with a more stripped down effect. Still, I think this is also a great album, and my second favorite from Geldof. Standout tracks include "Love Or Something", "The Great Song Of Indifference", "Thinking Voyager 2 Type Things", "Big Romantic Stuff", "The Chains Of Pain", "A Rose At Night" and "No Small Wonder". The seven bonus songs here are probably the best of the four albums.

The Happy Club (1992): I got this on cd when it was released in April 1992. This remastered version omits "Yeah, Right" from the original release, but I went back and listened to it and felt that it was a good idea to leave it off the digital remaster. The track order is slightly different too on the digital remaster, and I think it works much better. Standout tracks include "Attitude Chicken", "The Soft Soil", "A Hole To Fill", "My Hippy Angel", "Too Late God", "Road Of Germany (After BD)" and "A Sex Thing". The three bonus tracks are okay.

Sex, Age And Death (2001): Obviously and intentionally bleak what with the suicide of his ex-wife and Michael Hutchence between albums. I don't like this one as much as his others. Standout tracks include "One For Me", "$6,000,000 Loser", "Scream In Vain", "Inside Your Head" and "10:15". The nine bonus songs are, again, just okay.

The reason to get this for those, like me, who already have them individually is that they're all digitally remastered and come with extra tracks. The booklet is informative with a review of each of the four albums followed by all the lyrics to each original album's tracks. There are no lyrics to the bonus tracks. All in all, much more than I'd hoped for and you can get it cheaper if you order it from Amazon.uk
I like Bob Geldof very much 20 April 2013

Verified Purchase
This collection brings the essence of Bob, mainly because it has "no small wonder" that is very significant for me, the words, the guitar solo, I enjoy it a lot since the first time I heard it.
