Pretty good collection of tunes from The Teardrops. The first seven songs are brilliant - each one leaps from the hi-fi at an almighty pace! However, then we come to 'Rachel Built A Steamboat' - it has to be said that this track is AWFUL. I find it difficult to understand why it was included, particularly as it completely ruins the effect of the previous 7 songs. However, the rest of the album is fine and there is only track 11 'Windowshopping For A New Crown Of Thorns' to complain about (again, why was this included? As something that people may not have heard before, maybe? Who cares, give us something that we'd like to hear). If these 2 bad tracks could have been replaced by say 'You Disappear From View' or 'Sleeping Gas' etc etc, then this album would have got a full 5 stars. Shame really - however, a fine compilation from a fine band!

all teardrops fans will want this cd because it includes rare b sides previously unavailable on cd.
rachel and crown of thorns were only on long deleted 12" singles.
which is obviously the only reason this cd exists.

The Teardrop Explodes were my out and out favourite group when I was about 15, and both Kilimanjaro and Wilder were played endlessly up in my bedroom. This album is basically the best tracks from both albums with one or two others that I hadnt heard before. Not everyones cup of tea, but if like me you loved Julian Copes manic lyrics and would rather have everything on 1 cd instead of buying the 2 albums then this is the one for you. The three singles are on there, plus "Strange House in the Snow" which if I'm not mistaken was a B-side. My favourite track has always been "Bent out of Shape" and a shame "Tiny Children" never made it, but if you want to reminisce about brown leather bomber jackets and boots then buy this album.

I bought this CD because I liked the big hits [eg Treason, Reward and Passionate Friend] and thought that I may therefore like the rest of the tracks. Unfortunately, they are pretty dire and forgettable.

I saw this CD and had flash backs to the eighties. Made the decision to buy this based on that and I remember vaguely liking them back in the day. CD was in great condition and arrived on time. BUT my memories were vague for a reason and that was because Teardrop Explodes are just plain crap.

Who buys collections? 10 Mar 2003
By igumby - Published on Amazon.com

So, yet another collection of Teardrops classics hits the streets. But who buys them? This should actually be titled selection rather than collection & it's a bit eclectic too. Who needs a collection like this? I consider both this bands original albums as essential & both were well re-issued recently featuring almost their entire output generously spread over both discs. Surely more satisfying than owning less than half of their recorded work & not neccesarily their best. However, for those new to the band, it would probably serve well enough as an introduction & will surely leave the listener curious enough to hear more & will thus, go ahead & buy the original albums anyway. A great piece of marketing therefore so hats off to those poor souls at the record company desperate to make ends meet & who so obviously deserve our hard earned cash! BUY IT! DON'T BUY IT!
