This is part of the dubious 'Platinum Series' of compilation albums (which also includes Echo and the Bunnymen and The Communards), and none is more dubious than this one. Featuring a motley collection of the old, the new, the bad, the unexpected, b-sides, covers and classics, it's not what you would label a 'platinum' collection.

However, there are plenty of brilliant songs here that are worth listening to. The latter-day early-90s Mondays is favoured a bit too much, but you get 'Step On,' '24 Hour Party People' and one of the many alternate versions of 'Wrote For Luck' here, as well as an excellent cover of Thin Lizzy's 'The Boys Are Back In Town' and the brilliant, string-augmented 'Judge Fudge.' Then there's the Beatles-aping 'Lazyitis...'

All in all, this wry re-imagining of what a Happy Mondays best-of should be like is a little wonky, misses a few obvious numbers, but is still worth buying; especially for a fiver.

I love the Mondays and I love this. A mega collection of songs that are less familiar and as dirty and funky as you could wish to hear. Double double good!
True rock 'n' roll spirit -You gotta love it!

Top music by a top band! Great album though feel that a few of the 12" versions should have replaced the single versions,just my opinion though!

A quirky collection that makes a nice change to listening to a particular album. A fan will not be disappointed.
