5.0 out of 5 stars The music bargain of the last millenium 10 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
Despite decades of cranking out great music and masterful live performances, The Blue Aeroplanes remain undiscovered by most aficionados of jangly pop.

Let this collection put you right.

Listen to Jacket Hangs and hear what track 1 intros should sound like.

Play on through Huh! and Colour Me and thrill to the fact that you have paid about the price of an EP, it's all been brilliant so far and there is still about an hour to go.

Weightless...And Stones link seamlessly and beautifully...

Jack Leaves will charm your soul if you have one...

Just buy it, fill out your 5 star review, and share the joy.

5.0 out of 5 stars If Swagger is unavailable... 22 Feb 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The highlights of this album are the tracks from Swagger, plus a couple of others, but is consistently strong. If Swagger (six stars!) is to remain unavailable (and I can't find it anywhere except in a second hand store in Portland, OR), then this is an essential purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best bits of their best two albums 20 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
First, the eulogies. The Blue Aeroplanes were (and still are, as I believe they're still active somewhere) one of the most interesting and original bands of the late 80's / early 90's - like England's answer to REM, but spikier, artier and with more contemporary songs. Not really indie enough for the indie scene, but not mainstream enough to go massive, they remain, for me, one of the highlights of a five year stretch of astonishing british music from 1987 - 1992 and one of the few bands from that period that I still listen to. And they were awesome live, with a four-guitar lineup and Bez-style dancer.
They've had some half-soaked "best of's" out there before, but this compilation, therefore, really does represent the best songs from their two best albums, with proper consideration given to a song sequence that might please fans and newcomers alike ("Jacket Hangs" first, "Weightless" leading to the tremendous "...And Stones".) Quirky, poetic guitar rock at its very best.
From madness to melancholy, it's all here. And for having the balls to keep it interesting, this record deserves every one of its five stars. A "must have".

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Underrated British Band Ever 11 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of the most original UK Rock bands ever. That they never got the credit they deserved is down to bad luck, the music press' inability to pigeonhole them and to be fair some less than brillianty recorded music. They were always a band that needed a large recording budget to do them justice, which they only really had on their two major lable albums, Swagger and Beatsongs both well represented here. However there is loads of other great stuff present on this compilation. Do yourself a favour and take a punt on this if you're unfamiliar - The Areoplnes were the best live band in the country for around ten years and were once called 'Better than REM' by Sounds magazine!
