Product Description

Space - Greatest Hits

Amazon.co.uk

Arguably, the fickle limits of public taste and toleration deem that any band with a high novelty or jocularity quotient is unlikely to be taken seriously for long enough to warrant much high-street interest in a greatest hits compilation. Although Space's Greatest Hits arrives pessimistically early in their recording career--and, to compound matters, after a mooted third album (I Love You More Than Football) failed to manifest itself for retail--perhaps this is the exception. Truly, no other Britpop band hugged the Godfather of the genre--Ray Davies, of course--more endearingly to their collective bosom than Liverpool's Space, a band whose propensity for all-round Englishness reached rare levels of affectionate working-class satire on "Neighbourhood" and who, nevertheless, weren't shy of introducing castanets, maracas, Tijuana brass and easy-listening to Britpop's' bread-and-butter musical conservatism.

That they succeeded in injecting humour into their music without becoming to Britpop what Freddie and the Dreamers were to the British Invasion is highly commendable. Although Greatest Hits includes two previously unreleased tracks--the marvellously entitled "The Shit You Talk Is Beautiful" auguring particularly well for the future--it's "The Ballad of Tom Jones" (rarely has the word "knickers" been uttered with such lusty relish, thank you Cerys Matthews of Catatonia) and the groovy 60s vibe of "Female of the Species" (subsequently covered live by Tom Jones) that remain the most entertaining. And while "Begin Again"--on which Space morphed into a Latin-pop infatuated version of Al Stewart--and "Me and You Vs the World"--a Kinks chorus meets the Buzzcocks gone calypso--weren't very far behind, covers of the Animals' "We've Gotta Get Out of This Place" and a duet with Tom Jones (yes, him again) on the Ray Davies (yes, him again) song "Sunny Afternoon" were merely competent and workmanlike. --Kevin Maidment

If you like the band space then you will definately like this album; it has all the bands hits like female of the species,avenging angels and neighbourhood etc. But I would only buy this album if you dont have space's first album SPIDERS as most of their good songs come of the spiders album. I wanted to see if the other mixes and songs I hadent heard before were any good and they dont dissapoint. If you can get it for a fiver or less then do it you wont regret it!

I ordered this as I had a particular song floating around my head one afternoon, and it's now my favourite CD to play in the car!

I had totally forgotten some of the tracks on here - Neighbourhood, The Ballad of Tom Jones etc. Definitely one of those CD's which takes you back to certain times and places in your life :-)

Really enjoy listening to this, and would definitely recommend it.

Space are by far one of the best bands to ever come out of England. They combine great and catchy tunes with clever lyrics to make a winning combination. Their Greatest Hits contain some of their best songs, granted some of them aren't my favourites but tha majority of them are.
If you've never heard Space before, I suggest you get this album as it contains a good mixture of previous album tracks, although I do suggest you buy "Spiders" as that is their best album they've ever done.
Greatest Hits is a must for your CD collection.

Unlike any other Indie Band in the 1990's, Space managed to bring back the 60's spirit into a few of their songs!! you can't get any better than that!!!!!! Wish they didn't break up, Get the CD and you'll know what I mean :)
