From their beginning in 1980 through to 1993 New Model Army's career followed the familiar album-tour-album-tour routine of an established working band. By the end of that year though they were ready to take a break. What followed was a quiet period with individual members pursuing side projects but reconvening as NMA periodically for a few gigs or festival appearances. New songs were being written throughout this time and some of them were performed live, some were recorded, and some fell by the wayside.

By the time the next album emerged in 1998 some of the 'new' songs on it were already live favourites. Left behind was a group of (lost) songs, each perfectly good on it's own, but which didn't quite 'fit' on the album. Add to these castaways a few songs left over from earlier albums (plus one remix) and you have this compilation. Because the writing and recording of these songs spans a number of years during which the band was constantly developing their sound the listener shouldn't expect any common style or thread to run through the material. This can leave the album feeling a little disjointed if you listen to it from start to finish and is probably the reason for some of the negative comments I've read in other reviews.

The material on this album is varied, probably more so than on any of the individual studio albums which they tend to write and record in an intense burst. For that reason it makes interesting listening and shows the band stretching it's creativity and experimenting with sounds and styles not heard on their other material, again probably the source of negative feedback.

It's been a recurring theme with NMA over the years that some of their best songs are hidden away on b-sides where nobody will hear them.

I've been a fan snce the early days and I have no hesitation in recommending this album at all. Even on first playing this I was very impressed with virtually every track. The dance remix thing at the end is a turkey in my opinion, but Brother, Falling, Knife, Refugee, See you in Hell, Men of England, Trees in Winter I would easily put up against (almost) anything from Ghost of Cain or Thunder and Consolation.
If you're a fan, buy it. You're very unlikely to be disappointed.

I'm not sure what discs the previous "reviewer" listened to but this collection of "lost songs" is superb. Some of these songs were only performed a handful of times but many of them are just as good or better than some of the album tracks and the liner notes are interesting as well. "Falling" is a personal favourite along with "Rainy Night 65" and "Knife". For any true New Model Army fan (and I've been one for over 25 years) this is a great addition to your music library. At the moment it's the one I am listening to the most. The only disappointment is the awful remix of my favourite NMA song "Over the Wire". What were they thinking?
