5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it and buy it now! 8 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
Fluffy haired pop princess they were not. Masters of their craft they were and what a craft it is. This is a collection of some of the most powerful tracks this collective produced. We have claustrophobic power with enormous impact. A sound that has often been parodied but never matched. The keyboard guitar combination is superb! Step outside the comfort zone, buy this and enjoy!!!

Amazing collection of songs. Where psychedelia meets punk. This group has inspired a lot of bands such as the Charlatans / Inspiral Carpets etc...

1.0 out of 5 stars Error 26 Nov 2009
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
These reviews bear no relation to this album which is a REGGAE album by PRISONERS not a compilation of tracks by Medway band THE PRISONERS.

Just thought I'd point that out, Folks.
