Boomtown or Strange Town,
This review is from: Back To Boomtown : Classic Rats Hits (Audio CD)
It's a greatest hits package so all the songs you expect are here and for that reason it can't have a low score.
That said, The Best of the Boomtown Rats (2005) compiled on the back of an internet poll of fans offers a better glimpse at some of the gems from the groups albums (Neon Heart and I Can Make It (if You Can)) and the best of their later work (Dave and Drag Me Down). On that basis it offers a better introduction to the casual fan.
As ever, there's always a personal favourite missing from these things (Kicks and Talking in Code anyone?), but hey that's for more dedicated fans and a reason to dip into the groups back catalogue, and in particular their first three albums.
