TOP 500 REVIEWERon 16 September 2015
'The Platinum Collection' provides a good selection of Bad Manners best known songs but is missing some of the bands best known hits. 'Can Can', 'Just A Feeling' and 'Lip Up Fatty' are all absent so this is far from a definitive collection.

The upside though is that the album is a breezy, light hearted collection with many highlights and it does contain some of the groups lesser known singles like 'Got No Brains' and 'That'll Do Nicely', which, were minor successes at the time at best.

The fun side of the band shines through most here and for a predominantly Ska outfit the array of different sounding songs/variety of tempos on offer here is surprising. The best two tracks undoubtedly open the album though and some of the songs towards the end of the collection are a bit weak but on a horrid rainy day, overall 'Special Brew' is just the ticket to cheer you up and bring back happy memories.
