Ear bleeding sound on a pointless compilation
, 3 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Greatest Hits, Vol. 1: The Singles (Audio CD)
I question the point of this release as apart from the re-recorded version of Name and one new track all the songs are from the previous three studio albums. Why they chose to re-record Name is beyond me as the original is far superior. Also, why no tracks from A Boy Named Goo and Superstar Carwash? This is just a cheap, badly put together compilation of their most recent and commercial songs. Nothing wrong with the tracks that are on here but ignoring half of your catalogue does not make a great overview of your career so far.
The other negative is the sound quality. Appalling. The 'Let Love In' album is one of the most compressed CDs on the market with digital clipping so harsh that it renders the sound almost unlistenable. This new compilation just continues this trend by making the sound harsh, painful and devoid of any musicality. One of the worst discs I have ever heard. If this is how an artist feels their art should be portrayed then they really should question their faith in their abilities. A real shame because the music itself is great.
