Of course, "Greatest Hits" is not equivalent to "Best of". The Sister's strength was in creating albums that were full pieces of music, to be listened to as a whole. Take songs out of context and the recording suffers a bit. Also, many of the best songs were never released as singles (Marian, Floods I and II, Some Kind of Stranger... off the top of my head), so of course, they don't get a look in. Finally the track list is in reverse chronological order, which will give a bit of a skewed listen to first-time experimenters with the band.

But.

Let's face it, all the songs here are, individually, very good. It's weird to hear tracks from such differently orientated albums juxtaposed together, but it's a great record to stick on in the car and just revisit a selection of the Sister's fine (if not finest) tracks. Advice though, if you know you like the Sisters of Mercy, just buy all the albums, they're all worth it :).

Overbombing covers a slightly patchy time in the Sister's career from First And Last And Always through to Vision Thing and their newer singles. This means that classics like Lucretia nestle alongside promising newer material such as Under The Gun, but also the slightly iffy Detonation Boulevard and Dr Jeep. For the long term fan its only real appeal is the first two tracks which are not available on other albums, but for a newcomer its quite a good introduction.

Some SoM purists have sneered at this compilation (just check out some of the reviews here) but do not be deterred: this is one seriously good selection of proud moments. There's a real energy and power as the setlist rips through Under the Gun, Vision Thing, Mine, Lucretia, Dominion and This Corrosion at breakneck pace. Stick it on, and let it unroll right through to the end - no fillers here.

People are being very picky if they are downgrading this wonderful collection on the basis of a track listing which is, I'll admit, a bit lazy. One brilliant song after another from a period when the Sisters were slighly more commercial and certainly more 'rock' than in their original incarnation. Remember when Eldritch smuggled his mad world onto Top of the Pops? This will take you back.
And if you don't like the track order, play it on shuffle or something.

Love this. Has all my fav songs and listen to it in the car a lot! Had a driver shout through his window whilst sitting at traffic lights saying how he loves The Sisters of Mercy and started singing! Lol. Item arrived promptly and I would recommend this seller.

If you are a sisters fan you will have most of the tracks already - but this is still a handy one to have up your sleeve if say, you are trying to introduce someone to the band, or just want to have a few sisters tracks on hand in the car, for example.
