Many old-time indie fans from the early 90s may be surprised to discover that Toni Halliday and Dean Garcia are still very much alive and releasing music as Curve.
As a counter to the first, rather hysterical (and elitist) review on these pages, it should be pointed out this is not a collection that's been released solely for the benefit of die-hard fans. This double-CD set attempts the envious task of summing up the last 12 years of a band who have never once compromised their art for extra sales, while attempting to appeal to both old and potential new listeners alike.
Even if you ARE a die-hard Curve fanatic, there is plenty here for you. All the tracks have been newly mastered and sound better than ever before. The presence of all three tracks from the super-rare German-only "Superblaster" single (a CD that fetches three-figure sums on Ebay!) are worth the money alone. And new track "In Disguise" is utterly sublime and proves that Curve are still pushing frontiers and are not the one-dimensional has-beens that the moronic New Musical Express continues to brand them (their recent review of this album suggests that they only listened to the first 5 tracks then switched off).
To newcomers (or old fans who thought Curve had dropped off the radar in 1994), if you're unsure whether to purchase this or not then do yourself a favour and hunt down a cheap copy of the incredible "Gift" from 2001. Then come back and apply. You will not regret it.

This is a serious collection which nicely documents Curve's career until 2002. The tracks on disc 1 are single A-side releases that chart the evolution of Curve from the kind of indie synth pop sound of "Ten Little Girls" and "Coast Is Clear", through a kind of Goth-pop with tracks like "Horror Head" and "Faît Accompli", through to proper loud with the utterly outstanding "Missing Link" and "Pink Girl With The Blues", almost through to industrial with "Chinese Burn", and then full circle again to "Want More Need Less" and "Perish". It's a white knuckle ride that is all over way too soon and leaves you wanting much, much more. In the first 6 tracks I can hear influences from bands such as Depeche Mode, The Cure, and Siouxsie & The Banshees. While there are echoes of various influences throughout, there's no doubt that Curve created something completely new that no-one else has ever quite managed to replace. At the time of writing there have not been any new Curve releases since this collection, and many Curve fans sorely miss the musical gap that Curve appear to have left.

Disc 2 is largely a collection of B-sides although there are a few tracks that originally appeared on compilations back in the nineties. If you've ever tried to track down some of the ultra-rare Curve single releases (or even some of the Curve albums) you'll appreciate that disc 2 is a bit of a God-send. It would be extremely expensive to purchase the entire back catalogue - and even with unlimited funds you'd still struggle to find several of the rarer EPs or single.

This does not deserve any critisism. A band with as good a back cataloue as Curve cannot possibly put all the best tracks to please all on the compilation. (As for those NME people who wrongly say all Curve sounds the same isn't it ironic that you only promote bands that fit whatever fad you decide to latch onto, garage rock anyone?) What they have put on this album certainly should not disappoint anyone and if you are new to Curve this will draw you in to their hypnotic power and send you off searching for their other amazing records which satisfy your senses to infinity.
Hearing remastered versions of classics like Horror Head and Superblaster remastered re-enforces their serene power even further at high volume! Tracks on the rarities b-side cd are still blowing me away now and each day a new one jumps out - today its Sinner and In Disguise which come after the euphoric cover version of I Feel Love.
Hope this album takes Curve to more people. FIll your room and life with Curve!

I was 13 when I first heard Curve. I turned the radio off afterwards. Somehow the next song couldn't be as good as Ten Little Girls. Hearing it again now back-to-back with Fait, Pink Girl, Chinese Burn and Perish makes me re-live events since then as if Curve supplied theme music to my life. Whilst there are some amazing songs missing from this compliation, and some rare ones too, it stands as an excellent indication what this band are capable of.

The Way of Curve is an apt title. Their music is almost a frequency that you can't quite hear and yet sometimes, on some tracks, you dial it in straight away and scream it until the reverb ends. Missing Link was, it seems, written specifically to be played inside a crash helmet, at volume, late at night and whilst traveling at high speed.

The later tracks seem cleaner against those recorded over 10 years ago. A more distilled sound, if you want. Chinese Burn and Hell above Water are forthright assaults when compared with the masked fury of Die Like a Dog and Horrorhead. Curve's sound has certainly evolved: where Arms Out fools you with false hope, Sinner just knifes you then leaves.

This was not released as a greatest hits album: Curve were still together at the time of recording. So rather than listen to this record and, as their own PR company suggests '..remember how good they were', listen to it and think about what might have been if things had turned out a a bit more favorably for them.
