4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Collection of Quo's Hits, 27 Aug 2014
By 
This review is from: Pictures: 40 Years of Hits (Audio CD)
This album was originally released in 2008, to mark the 40th anniversary of Quo's first hit single, Pictures Of Matchstick Men. It is a very good album, with some storming songs and most of their best singles. However, I do have several reservations. First of all, the track listing on the back of the box is not numbered, which makes it a bit awkward when you look at the box and want to skip certain tracks. This can become very tiring, especially if you want to skip more than one song, because it means that you have to count the tracks to find out which track number you want to skip. Also, although this album was advertised as containing all of Quo's Top 20 hits, there are several noticeable omissions. Where are Going Down Town Tonight, Dreamin', Running All Over The World and Anniversary Waltz Part 2, all of which made the UK Top 20? Another problem with this album is it also contains songs that were never big hits and didn't even make the Top 20, for example, In My Chair, Mean Girl, I Didn't Mean It and Fun Fun Fun. Beginning Of The End is also included, which didn't even make the Top 40, so it can hardly be considered to be a hit and also It's Christmas Time, which only just scraped into the Top 40. So, this album would only really appeal to a casual Quo fan, who would only be interested in the biggest hits and who would not be bothered by such flaws and who would already own all of the songs, anyway. So, four stars from me, for this very good, but flawed album. I think Quo still have yet to release the definitive hits album, if they ever do. Nice try, though.
