This is a terrific compilation and a great introduction to The Rainbirds, one of the most cruelly overlooked bands, and in Katharina Franck, one of best singers, of the 80s/90s. The CD does a good job of covering the various changes in style of The Rainbirds' early years, from pop/rock through to edgy electronica and gets it right with the songs. There's nothing here I'd discard and with one exception all their best songs are included.
The one major omission is 'Love Is A Better Word' from the 'Call Me Easy...' album. It rated a single and video release and is one of their best, so I'm mystified as to why it was dropped. If it had been included, this would have been the perfect Rainbirds compilation. Even so, I've had so much pleasure from this album that I still rate it at 5 stars. Just remember to get 'Call Me Easy...' to get that missing song.
