Question is - why would you want to buy this? Anybody who has heard any of Warrior Soul's output would quickly realise that they are onto a good thing and buy every thing they ever produced, including the imaginatively titled outtakes Cd: 'Outtakes' - I won't mention it's other title as it's not printable, suffice to say it rhymes with 'trucker'. So why buy a `Greatest Hits' which omits such classics as 'Charlie's Out Of Prison', 'No,No,No', or 'The Golden Shore'? Well, firstly everything pre Space Age Playboys has been re recorded. In essence the song arrangements are identical but the bottom end has been pulled out massively. The bass is way up in the mix and clanks instead of hums, which gives more of a jamming sound to the songs. Secondly the guitars have a fuzzier, harder edge and thirdly, despite a few omissions noted above, it is really the crème de la crème of Kory's output. Beefing up the pre Playboys songs allows the whole to flow, as the production catches up with the latter days cleaner sound and Kory's vocals are in relatively good shape, which is also a worry if you buy some of his later output. So this is worth a few quid to get the early stuff revamped and actually produced (particularly with regard to the bands seminal first album, which sounded dreadful due to the fuzzy and bloated production) but ultimately it will lead you to the full canon of Kory's faultless bloodline.

In case you don't know what it sounds like, think smart high energy rock/metal with a massive slab of punky exuberance (not in a bad way - think Iggy Pop) coupled with intelligent and often political (read anti Republican, anti religion, anti war, anti establishment) lyrical content, which as a description does it little justice as it's that good.

The highlights are basically everything that doesn't come off the flawed Chill Pill album and are topped by the clanking version of Wasteland....

HI all kory clarke isa genius that the world missed.I bought the first warrior soul album in 1988 could not belive what astonishing mix of punk and power it contained. I have just listened to the Mob Research cd and can confirm the man is a genius. There is not abad cd in the Warrior soul back catalogue, despite his voice changhing over the years. Buy them all they are great.

ABsolutely terrific band - Kory Clarke is a genius. If you like your punk rock loud, wild and sleazy this is for you! They should be massive but there you go - the now ubiquitous X-Factor conveyor belt of braindead mush is stupefying the kids and rock n roll as an art form seems pointless in the hands of idiots like Pete Doherty and Johnny Borrell. This is how it should be done - with conviction, and a swagger so cocky and sexually charged it would get your granny reaching for the KY...

Outstanding compilation from a dearly missed band. The production of this album stands out and so much is added to earlier songs in this compilation. If you're an existing fan it's well worth the purchase. If you like hard rock/punk rock then check this out. It brings back memories..! :-)
