5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful 30 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Pastels were my favorite band from Scotland until The School came in (though they don't share any other point). This collection has a lot of remastering or remixing which doesn't count as an anthology, though it is a collection of past recordings. I guess the band thought it was more faithfull to their spirit to keep it creative at reworking the sound (not completely, just to a better effect). In some way that proved they were still alive and not about to be locked in a Pop' Art Museum.
To me, this band remains the closest to the Velvet Underground I have ever heard. The Pastels weren't so "twee". They were originals, free, rolling in the spirit and the rare grace of Youth. They may share that with Talulah Gosh. When I think of the Velvet Underground, I think of an original sound. I think of stuff like "Some kinda love", "One of these days", "I'm sticking with you", "Temptation inside your heart", you know. Stuff with an incredible charm. The Pastels had that charm. Listening to this collection today, you catch a taste of endless freshness. The way they paint "Truckload of trouble" on the cover also keeps a fresh touch of childlike artistry and fancy. It's a whole thing. They weren't cheating, whining, fainting, posing. Willingly naive and arty, but real and true, as the sound of the band does attest.
