5.0 out of 5 stars "best of" from one of the most underrated bands in the UK
This is a great introduction of one of the most underrated British bands of the 1990s. It contains all 11 of the bands' singles, as well as a smattering of album tracks and b-sides, alongside their cover of The Jam's "Town Called Malice" from the "Fire and Skill" tribute album.

3.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets
"As good as it gets" is a collection of timeless classics but at the same time fails to deliver a round up view of Gene's entire releases. Gene were a prolific band fronted by charismatic lead singer Martin Rossiter who doesn't have to stand comparison to good old Moz, being an artist in his own right.

Lead singer Martin Rossiter has recently released a solo album which is well worth a listen - and I was fortunate to see him live at a venue in leicester which prompted me to research earlier albums and come up with this 'best of' selection. I have thoroughtly enjoyed the mix of tracks, some you might recall, good lyrics that you can hear and enjoy their poetry.

My two favourite tracks are included, Fill her up & As good as it gets. This CD reminds you of how good they actually were! Another band under appreciated.
