5.0 out of 5 stars Sonic Boomtown., 10 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Back To Boomtown : Classic Rats Hits (Audio CD)
First of all let us just say love him or loathe him Bob Geldof is a great songwriter.
The Boomtown Rats were never cool as coming from Ireland were sneered at by the London set at the time. While I am on that subject Bob Geldof and Phil Lynott put Ireland on the musical map long before Bono.
What we have here is a collection of songs mainly from the first three albums, the single edit of "Banana Republic" and a couple of new tracks.This is a fine way to get to know one of the most overlooked bands of that era. The whole package is bursting with energy, attitude and passion.
I loved The Boomtown Rats as they were never cool but at one point they sold bucket loads of records.I grew up listening to all their albums and they hold a special place in my heart.
When you take out the cd you see an ad for a six cd classic album box set. Trust me when I say there are loads more gems to be discovered.
