5.0 out of 5 stars
Best of.......Oh Yes !!!, 8 Nov 2008
You really do not need to say too much about this band, they have spoken for themselves over the years and, I might add, in a slightly understated way that has not been too much in our face, which is how it should be. One of the best and most balanced bands the UK has seen.
A great album packed full of great songs. To Stereophonics fans they will know what they are getting and will, I hope, buy this out of respect of the pleasure that Kelly and Co. have given us over the years. If you have had your head in the sand all this time and want to hear what the boys can offer then the 40 tracks that this album offers what what must be one of the best value music buys this ....decade !!
And the 2 new tracks "You're my star" and "My Own Worst Enemy" do not dissapoint with the latter being a great unexpected surprise in my opinion.
Trying to put a compilation together from such a back catalogue is never going to be easy and you are never going to get the exact choice to suit exactly everyone's taste. There are 40 songs there...to knock the album because it does not contain a couple of certain tracks that certain people might want is a little blinkered.
