What a shame Squeeze never realised their commercial potential. A serious image problem (ie - they never had one) being the only explanation I can find. One thing is for certain; their songs were not to blame. Just listen to the brilliance of most of these tracks if you need any proof. Their entire career is represented here with the exception of anything from their best album "Play" and last album "Domino" (neither released on A&M). Although the only real hit on this compilation is the title track, the album's content is meaty enough with a few quirky surprises thrown in for good measure: The beautiful Vanity Fair (1981), the laddish It's So Dirty (1979) and reggae-tinged By Your Side (1985) have little in common stylistically, yet all point to a sharp observational wit on the part of Chris Difford and an astounding melodic versatility courtesy of Mr. Glenn Tilbrook. The album finishes with the excellent "Electric Trains" (1995), the single that Radio 1 refused to playlist because they assumed their audience wouldn't relate to its "middle aged" theme (growing up). This was to prove one frustration too many for their record company and despite one record on their own label since, they have pretty much called it a day. Still... this is a must for the curious and a stop gap for the fans waiting for Tilbrook's debut solo album due later this year.

That's a fair question in my opinion, or to make myself clear: What kind of of compilation is this? Well, it's not a "greatest hits", it's not a "very best of" or an "ultimate collection", and it's not a rarities/B-sides compilation. But what it really is, that's harder to say. It could be some compiler's favourite Squeeze tracks but it might as well be the first 19 tracks randomly chosen by a CD jukebox filled with Squeeze CD's. If the latter is the case we could have at least five or six more compilations like this one before every Squeeze song has been picked. I don't see the point.My 3 star rating is not based on the musical content, but on the compilation as such. Saying that 3 stars might be one too many.

If your a Squeeze fan then this is one of their greats. The 'First Thing Wrong' was 'Annie' had to go 'Up the Junction' to 'Talk to Him' about his 'Points of View' and he said 'Goodbye Girl'. The only thing left was 'Annie' had to get her 'Gun'.
