Finally, a worthy Proclaimers compilation that goes a long way towards doing justice to their back catalogue! 2002's "Best Of" was a brilliant single-disc selection of songs, but this double album is the definitive place to come if you want to discover the truly magical music of Charlie and Craig Reid. I will set my stall out straight away... I have every Proclaimers album there is, so it could be said that I'm a bit of a fan. To reward the hardcore fans (or to entice completists to buy it, whichever way you want to look at it), there is a brand new song on here, the excellent, upbeat "Not Cynical". There are also the 2011 remaster versions of their earlier singles, which gives the earlier material a little more equality with their later recordings when it comes to sonic punch and the powerful vocals and beautiful harmonies really do create the most sublime aural fireworks throughout this whole release. This is a collection of some of the most truly intelligently, lovingly and beautifully crafted songs you are ever likely to hear in your life.

So, for the uninitiated, what is there to discover from this album? Well, you have absolutely magnificent songs of love, such as "Sunshine On Leith" (one of the greatest songs ever written), "Life With You" (such a joyous, glorious piece), "I'm On My Way" (is there a more infectious song about new love in existence?), "Spinning Around In The Air" (the key change in the last verse makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up in rapture) and "Let's Get Married" (which speaks the language of love in a way virtually everyone can relate to). There are songs of heartbreak, from the amusing but genuinely stirring pathos of the simply fantastic "What Makes You Cry?

All the big hits on here but funnily enough in some ways the likes of 500 miles, sunshine on Leith, etc have been so over played that I actually am enjoying the best of some of their more recent material all in one album.

Think people forget how good these guys are at producing catchy melodies and great music.

A must!

Oh yes a truly excellent collection by two of the most tuneful, passionate, literate and witty musicians that the British Isles has produced in the history of popular music. They've also included the ever so wonderful 'I'm Gone', so it's a definite 5 stars.

This cd is great because the songs were picked by the guys playing their story from beginning to now. To my ears, no-one can match the Proclaimers!!!!

Have always liked the Proclaimers. What a talented duo. After seeing the film Sunshine On Leith and loving that particular song, was looking round for a CD with it on. This is a double CD with all there hits on, so good value for money st £9.99 and fast delivery.
