The good thing about the Platinum Series is that they form a solid and honest introduction to an artist. The previous reveiwer is right, they are not a complete Greatest Hits - possibly a deliberate record company act to leave a hook dangling for further purchases. What they do is give an open minded listener the chance to make their own mind up about an act.

This compilation contains some material that is very very good - more than enough to off-set the weaker points. The first single Johnny Come Home provided the electric shock of Roland Gift's voice and an unberaringly haunting lament in tune with the 80s. OK, Suspicious Minds wasn't the greatest cover ever, but the edgy reworking of the Buzzcocks' Ever Fallen In Love is up there with the best. As for 'Blue' - possibly the finest and most tuneful protest comment on the Thatcher years you'll ever hear.

This is a good compilation at a budget price. FYC were not a run of the mill 80s band and you won't have anything similar to them in your collection if you don't own the original albums. Give it a go.

Missing from this "platinum" collection is good thing, One of their most catchy and fondly remembered tracks. The record company surely meant to rip off purchaser. The band have made some F A B songs, just a pity they couldn't have given us what it says on the tin. Any whipper snappers who will have heard good thing on the Cheverolet Captiva advert currently doing the rounds, would likely look to their greatest hits for this track, rightly expecting the song to be on it.

Disgraceful.

Save your money and purchase their albums instead.

I bought this after having had a few glasses of wine one evening and was a little disappointed, not so much a reflection on the music, there are a couple of song that would be on my list of all time favourites, just that many of the others wouldn't make the list!

A great CD by one of the 1980s finest artists. Came well packaged and ready to listen to. Jonny Come Home is my favourite.

After browsing through amazon on search for some 80s gems I came across this FYC release which has only little to offer. It's neither a holistic approach, nor a good compilation to get accquainted with Roland Gift & co. I both own their debut release and "The raw and the cooked" on vinyl which both inherit everything the FYC has ever released (apart from a remix album and a single release from 1996 which can be neglected here). Please don't get me wrong here: The FYC still belong to the creme de la creme of the 80s music scene and I still hold both album releases dear to me. But why on earth do they make crappy compilations like this, mashing up two fantastic albums? It would have been different if they had included b-sides, demo tapes and live recordings in order to paint a more distinguished picture of the band. Newcomers and fans beware: Better get the original albums!
