This is great collection of solid songs from a band who have been greatly ignored in the music world. With a reputation for being boring and hanging off every word Paul Weller says OCS where shunted to the back of the class when Britpop was king and nearly forgotten when it imploded.
But this is a band of great quality both lyrically and musically. The Riverboat Song may forever be tainted by the association with one C.Evans but Hundred Mile High City, Day we Caught the Train, Travellers Tune, July, Huckelberry Grove are great tunes. The live version of 'Robin Hood' is fantastic.
But for me the highlight of this is the limited edition live CD which showcases OCS's talents in the live arena, on 'Profit in Peace' when the crowd sing back at the band 'We don't wanna fight no more' there is real sense of occassion and the epic nature of 'Get Away' is given real justice as it here spread over 9 minutes. 'Hundred Mile High City' just sounds amazing.
Overall a great cd that is improved by the live element.

Finally the band have put all their best onto one cracking greatest hit album. The album opens with the well known riff of the excellent riverboat song, continuing with the best songs off Mosley Shoals, Marchin' Already, One From The Modern and Mechanical Wonder. The limited edition version has some great performances and shows the band at their live best. The highlight has to be the little known Robin Hood live at the Albert Hall. All the songs here are fans favourites and real highlight songs of the last 10 years. A must buy for Ocean Colour Scene fans and fans of indie.

From one of the most underrated bands in the past decade comes a great album. Every single track is brilliant. You have some old anthems, Riverboat Song (TFI theme tune), and The Day We Caught the Train, and some really melodic beautiful tunes, Beautiful Thing. The booklet itself is a treat, with a comment from the band about every song, and what it means to them. Basically fantastic - a must buy for you die hard indie fans out there!

Ocean colour scene are amazing. Fact. Trust me, this would be the best money you've ever spent (with the possible exeption of Revolver but I'm assuming you already have it)
There are big hits here like The Riverboat Song and The Day We Caught The Train that everyone will know. However, lurking in the midst are some of the best songs you've never heard. Mechanical Wonder for example, everytime I hear it it sends shivers down my spine.
The limited edition version also features the live CD capturing the lads doing what they do best.
If you love music, and I mean really care about it, you should buy this. It is a collection of songs which show songwriting ability, emotion, superb musicianship and the refreshing fact that they are not trying to be weird.
Classic songs, classic album.
p.s. check out "Get blown away"
