5.0 out of 5 stars thunderstruck, 19 April 2010
A 'best of' disguised as a soundtrack album. Not a greatest hits as a number of 'hit' singles are absent & the fact that half the tracks are Bon Scott numbers & the 30 years Brian Johnson has spent with the group on a career retrospective would have been better represented.
Enough of the carping; it is a power packed collection of their best tracks, live favourites & lesser known tracks. Not since 'Who made who' has a non-live AC/DC album collected from their 37 year career, as fans already have all the albums it shows how little they've changed that tracks from 1976 & 2008 sit together comfortably.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glimmer Twins, 29 Dec 2009
The Stones 1977 double live album was as per usual excerpts from a number of shows.
It features many of their biggest hits, some not on any other live album, a number of covers & the odd album track.
More of a blues album than any other live album, 'You gotta move' is followed by the melachony 'you can't always get what you want' are 2 highlights. They also play Chuck Berry's 'Around & around' before closing with 4 huge hits, but for the collector it is the rare tracks that have long since disappeared from their live sets that are the real pluses.

After years of great records & moderate sales, when he had a significant hit with "Secrets" he followed it up with equally impressive "Clues".
He kicks off with the title track "looking for clues" which was more dance than blues, the classic track on this album is the gentle "Johnny & Mary" - a Simon Bate's favourite which got it heavy Radio 1 airplay. The unlikley combination of RP & Gary Numan created the unique "I dream of wires" also included is another untypical song "woke up laughing" these tracks combined with trade mark RP material makes clues the most diverse album in his canon.
