A disappointing collection from a great band
on 6 May 2000
As a 'Best of' collection this isn't that great. Many of the tracks are gems but there are quite a few of their best tracks missing. There are some single B-sides included here but there are better ones which could have replaced them. Two of the extra tracks from the vinyl issue of the official release of 'Fishing For Luckies' are also present but even that doesn't help the album as one of the tracks isn't that great and the other is the very poor new version of their classic B-side '29 x The Pain'. The band didn't sanction this release and it's easy to see why. A sloppy track selection for a band who deserved a better representation of their music, it gets three stars due to the excellence of the tracks from the first two albums but it could have been so much better with a bit of thought.
