5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars but ..., 17 May 2009
This review is from: Daydream Believer - The Collection Vol 1 (Audio CD)
Definiately five stars for this Monkees collection. I came to this album only knowing I'm a believer and daydream believer and small bits of theme from the mokees, and i was very impressed with rest of the tracks on this album. Agreeably some may be considered slightly cheesy, but tehre is a lot of good quality songs on this album which I never knew existed. As someone who was born in the 80's I do not know how many of the other songs on this album would be well known. But my advice is, whether you know them or not, give this album a try!

However, the but is that Last Train To Clarksville does not feature on this album. That song was one of the Monkees most well known songs and will probbly disappoint a fair few people that it is not on here. Also "Stepping Stone", possibly not as famous as Last Train but still very good, does not feature. To remedy the situation I would advise to get The Monkees Platinum Collection Vol. 2, alongside this album. Although the title is different it is effectively the second volume to this album. As galling as it is to be induced by a money making scheme of splitting up the most well known songs, it has made me appreciate more of the Monkees music than I previously would have done.

By getting both albums it covers pretty much everything of the Monkees you could wish to own. Although the Definitive Monkees has more tracks it still works out as more expensive and some of the additional tracks are really rather peripheral work, as even a couple of tracks on the platinum vol 2 cd start to waver in quality compared to the rest.
