Flawed, but still good
on 29 March 2005
Being a huge fan of the "Rooty" album and enjoying a few of their more recent releases, I went ahead and bought "The Singles".
My verdict? It's a mixed bag, I'm very much torn between the tracks. The commercialised singles like "Romeo", "Good Luck", "Plug It In" and the latest offering, "Oh My Gosh" appeal to me whereas some of their other stuff comes accross as heavy, repetitive and, to be frank, annoying. Another minus is the absense of one of my favourites, "Get Me Off". This was released in radio edit form in the summer of 2002 and I suspect it's failure to land them a place in the top 20 has something to do with it. This may be, but this means I can't get this song on any of their albums and therefore will have to hunt for the now-discontinued single.
All in all, a worthy purchase with several duff moments.
