4.0 out of 5 stars Stop complaining, 26 Oct 2002
This review is from: Forever Delayed (Limited Edition) (Audio CD)
Let me just start by venting my anger about all these people who slag off this greatest hits package because its 'too commercial', and theres not enough from the Holy Bible on it. I too wish it included more songs from pre-Everything Must Go. But, this is a greatest hits album, not a best of compilation. If you want that, get your copies of the first three albums and make a tape/cd of your favourite tracks.
I'm usually not bothered by greatest hits albums, unless its of a band whose albums i dont own, and of whom i just want a taster. However, i will be buying this for the new songs and the remix cd. As another reviewer points out, they could have put b-sides on, and although i haven't heard them all, the manics b-sides i have heard have been pretty poor. b-sides are songs that aren't good enough to make it onto an album.
The songs that have been included on this album are essentially the greatest hits. complaining that the manics have sold out by putting too much recent stuff on it isn't going to make a difference. the manics aren't suddenly going to recall all the cd's, burn them in a big skip and come up with a compilation of the first three albums and a design for life. if you dont like the album, dont buy it. it's like people who get offended by a tv programme, but insist on sitting through so that they can get even more offended and complain a lot. In about ten years time there will probably be another greatest hits compilation including the stuff they do in the future. That will include even less old stuff, so please just realise that it is not 1994 anymore. dressing like the cheapest tart (whether you are male or female) in the world does not make you a better manics fan than someone who has only got into them in the last two/three years. There are many different types of manics fan, and this compilation was never going to please everyone. However, i believe that this is the best the manics could have done, and there is enough here to please everyone but a sullen few who refuse to grow up.
