With any B-Sides and rarities compilation, it's hard to know exactly what to expect. On the occasion, B-Sides are often just as likeable as their A-Sides, though more often than not, they're consigned to the flipside for a perfectly understandable reason.

'Saturnine Martial and Lunatic' is a patchwork quilt, speaking metaphorically. Musically, it's a huge, defiantly surreal smorgasbord of varying influences and styles - there's some severely experimental works (Schrodinger's Cat, My Life In The Suicide Ranks, Pharaohs, Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams) hidden amongst this treasure-chest, which, depending on your taste, you will either take or leave.

However, there are some incredible records on this compilation which I personally found hard to believe are mere 'sin-bin' consigments. Fans of TFF's rockier side, particularly 1993's 'Elemental', will be at home with the sublime 'Lord of Karma' and 'New Star', both which I'm sure would fair well in even today's charts. There's surprising fruit born out of 'Sea Song', a Robert Wyatt cover which was the B-Side to 'I Believe' - a mellow, yet impossibly catchy song which I'm sure will at least tempt your curiosity, if not seduce your ears. Bowie cover 'Ashes to Ashes', dance-influenced 'Bloodletting Go' and the quite frankly insane (and previously unseen on any other TFF LP asides the remaster of 'The Hurting') 'The Way You Are' are all also worthy of mention.

Though there ARE some incredible songs on here, for the majority it's a collection which will only satisfy hardcore TFF fans. Definitely worth a look by all accounts.

This is eighteen-track collection comprises B-sides; songs that failed to make the albums; cover-songs; jams and experimental works by the group that have been brought together on one CD. They range from `Johnny Panic & the Bible of Dreams' (which is `Sowing the Seeds' as rap-pop) to `Pharaohs' (the shipping-forecast chilled-out). We also have the quirky soul-pop of `Déjà vu & the Sins of Science' (accompanied by musical car door-slams - I think they once said that VW Golfs were best for this) and an honestly unoriginal rendition of Bowie's `Ashes to Ashes'.

The disc's sleevenotes come with some interesting commentary by Roland Orzabal (and Chris Hughes). As for the crass `The Way You Are', Orzabal writes: "I think this was the point at which we realised we had to change direction" Darn right!

Having bought all their other albums,and loving them all,this was quite a different album altogether.Most of the tracks are instrumental,some are potential b-sides and others just great songs that never made it to their various albums in the past.
If you love their music then i still recommend you get it,as it's an essential addition to their collection.
I've played it twice and it's already starting to grow on me!
