I think it goes without saying that The Christians were underrated as a band. From the same city that spawned The Beatles this outfit explore timeless issues of social problems, love and hate in classics such as "Harvest For The World", "Ideal World", "Words", and "Bottle". I would think that not everyone wants pop to preach, but when it is done like this then it makes compelling listening. Sadly, The Christians short-lived famne was confined to the late 80s, but with this compilation you are left in no doubt as to why much of todays pop is empty pap.

I have been listening to The Christians since I was little and Garry Christian's voice has always been extremely soothing and smooth. These days it's rare to hear music that actually tries to address something as most of it seems to be rubbish about clubs and backsides! The Christians are classic music and if ever you get the chance, go and see them live!! If you want something that is going to make you think about what you are listening to and will also give you a taster of real music then buy this! Makes a great addition to the other Christians albums!

This selection shows that The Christians are one of the best kept secrets of the 1990's. The music varies in mood. It has lyrics that are intelligent, meaningfull, and a breadth of vision that others can't emulate. The singing of Gary Christian puts him as one of the best singers of this decade. The close sung background harmonies give a strength of mood and emotion that under pin strong tunes and rhythms. The rhythm section drive when needed and support some of the more poignant moments, like in the song 'Father' with subtlety and feeling. The last track, a cover of Bob Marley's 'Axe' is beautifully executed. A great band and a great selection. It's a pity they do not record more.

For all that nowadays The Christians are a band most likely to be mentioned in the "Whatever Happened To...?" sections of music journals, their music has aged very gracefully and has clearly been an inspiration to a whole generation of younger musicians. This collection provides a welcome opportunity to review the material of a band that had a few moments of fame in the late 1980s, then disappeared more or less without a trace after three fantastic and woefully under-rated albums. The biggest surprise, perhaps, is that the music has aged so well. The keyboard on their signature tune, "Forgotten Town", sounds perhaps a little tinny now, but the sheer vitriol in songs like "When the Fingers Point" and the anti-apartheid classic, "Ideal World", sound somehow all the more relevant in the days of anti-paedophile vigilantism and the Stephen Lawrence inquiry. This was always The Christians' greatest talent: to dress up sharp social comment in a package of sweet soul music, lush harmonies, and melodies which later generations of northern soulsters such as the Lighthouse Family have often striven to imitate, and seldom come close. All the classics are on this collection, as well as some more minor hits ("Greenbank Drive" and "Perfect Moment" being two of the sweetest, most uplifting songs I've heard in years) and the unexpected gem of a close-harmony, Gospel rendition of Bob Marley's "Small Axe" to close the set. This is music well deserving of another visit. It will help you chill, but it will also make you think.

I never really listened to the Christians when they were popular in the eighties, but went to a gig where they were playing recently. I thought they were better than the band we had come to see (Go West), Gary the front man was very amusing and they were great live. I went home and bought this and Colours, both of which are very good, unlike their latest CD which we bought at the gig.

Bought this as an xmas stocking filler for my daughter. I've always loved the Christians and she had heard Hooverville on the radio, and liked it. Xmas morning she put the album on ~ before long "There You Go Again" was on repeat play. All good songs, very well written and performed. Recommended.

Bought this and Colours after seeing the Christians recently. They were terrific, better than the band we had gone to see (Go West).
Gary Christian was very amusing and their set was great, just wish it had been longer! Both CDs are really good, better than their recent CD which we bought at the gig.
