Format: Audio CD
It's perhaps telling that only one review of this has been submitted so far - maybe other viewers have felt the same twinge of disappointment as myself, particularly after the high standard set by those RT folk with the superb Electronic / Rock'n'Roll / Post-Punk compilations.
Two different lots of people are going to be out to buy this really - firstly a younger Indie crowd who want a kind of ready-made 'Nuggets-style' compilation, choc full of gems from the golden era of the UK indiepop scene circa '86 to '88 and secondly a load of old bowlheads like myself who lived through the whole thing and want something to stick in the CD player instead of having to dig out a load of their battered old 7" singles.
This compilation curiously hits the mark for neither set of people really, with it's hit and miss inclusion of some Pre-86 stuff that's readily available on CD anyway and most importantly it's omission of SO SO many fantastic singles from this period ( that aren't available on CD anywhere ) in favour of some really rather lacklustre newer stuff.
Hell, I really am picking holes, because there's still a whole heap of great music on here and I appreciate that not everything out there would have been readily available for inclusion, but overall, some Quality Control needs putting in place for Volume 2. A wider net of compilers needed, maybe ?

Format: Audio CD
The absence of the mighty BMX Bandits from this compilation is inexplicable and almost unforgiveable, but everything else about it is just superb. You could scarcely ask for a better representation of the C86 era in one collection, and even though I devoured the scene at the time, there are classics here unknown to me (The Field Mice's fantastic "Landmark"), and by bands I never even heard of at the time (such as the splendid Juniper Moon). It even includes one of the best songs of all time that nobody's ever heard of, the majestic "When You're Sad" by AR Kane (though in a version new to me). If you have any curiosity about this time at all, or just want to relive it again without the bloody Chesterfields, don't miss this.

Format: Audio CD
The Rough Trade compilations are always obligatory purchases, Indiepop Vol.1 (title!!!) being particularly compulsory. As ever the two disc format is great value and contains curios as well as classics: 46 tracks of an indie disposition patrol these waters...
This is indiepop pre-Britpop, an era which mangled British retro bands who wanted to be The Beatles or The Kinks on major labels with the indie-tag. This is, er, old school indie- you know, the kind that members of Belle & Sebastian were reared on. Notable contributions come from Felt, The Wedding Present, The Jesus & Mary Chain (this & Lost in Translation should kickstart that Psychocandy-revival!), McCarthy, AR Kane, Lush, pre-Realise MBV, The Pastels, Magnetic Fields, Velvet Crush & The Darling Buds (the latter ended up trying to be Transvision Vamp, appearing on kids TV & promptly vanishing). It's all interesting & fun, even if it includes Bis and Pop Will Eat Itself; amusing to hear early Primal Scream in their C-86-stylee (pity that the hard to find Velocity Girl wasn't put on here. & shouldn't there be some Orange Juice, Microdisney or Go-Betweens? Smiths even? ). Still Josef-K's classic Sorry for Laughing (as covered by Propaganda) and The Monochrome Set's eponymous track show us exactly why Franz Ferdinand are so unoriginal (that's if you haven't heard Dirk Wears White Sox!!). & it's very canny to include The Vaselines' classic Molly's Lips, one of the greatest pop-songs of all time- put it against anything (Can't Get You Out of My Head, I Travel, She Belongs To Me, Felicity, Lazy Line Painter Jane, The Light Pours Out of Me, Jump etc) & it stands up (The Beatles? Give me a break...).

Format: Audio CD
A very off putting selection of tracks most of which never even made the Indie charts-not that this is the main problem-but a collection which names itself Indie Pop without the Family Cat or is not at least half full of Tweepop- can't be taken seriously.It would have been better if they'd just reissued the Beechwood comps.
Including the band with the worst name in history -whose initials are MBV-kills this one for me
As Rough Trade itself when it was a record label had a Top 10 Indie single by Virginia Astley.There was certainly more important stuff around than what's on this oddball comp
The newcomer to Indie would be given the wrong idea

Buy it, love it. 2 Dec 2005
By Page Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I had to edit my review of this album, because after having it for over 6 months, I love it even more than I did at the beginning. I'd give it 5 stars, but I can't seem to change that. Before this album, I wasn't very familiar with indie pop. I thought the songs were fun, but they all kind of blurred together. After listening to it more and more, I was hooked. I keep finding, even now, songs on the compilation that I didn't know I liked and that I want to listen to more. Although I wish there was more of a n international representation, this album is full of simply great pop songs dating from the late 70s to the 2000s. If you like poppy music, this might very well be a "wonder how you lived without it so long" album. I highly recommend it.
