By Andy Sweeney TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 1 Feb. 2014
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Until they release their new album later on in 2014 (hopefully), this compilation includes everything you need to know about one of the most individual, unique act of the nineties. Space were a strange mix of pop, rock, rockabilly, techno, music hall and pretty much anything that took their fancy at the time. Tommy Scott's interest in film soundtracks was one of the driving forces in their music and their general oddness and slightly off-kilter sounds were the very things that attracted me to them in the first place. The first two albums "Spiders" and "Tin Planet" (the vast majority of which are present here) were nothing less than brilliant, although I think even hardened fans would always have a couple of tracks they really didn't care for on both, such was the eclecticism of the act.

As a singles act, they released some absolute corkers - and they're all here. "Neighbourhood", "Female Of The Species", "Ballad Of Tom Jones" (featuring Cerys Matthews), "Me and You vs The World", "Avenging Angels"... if you can think of a Space song that bothered the charts, it is on this huge two CD collection. However, the album tracks, B-sides and rarities on offer here make it a real treat to those who haven't delved much deeper than listening to them casually, although there are some tracks which can only be described as indulgent noodling too. These don't harm the overall feel of this compilation, though; there are gems in abundance here and the handful of stinkers are far outweighed by the shimmering pop and the everyman genius of the lyrics offered by the vast majority of the material.

Had this on tape and being able to have it back in the car is a real treat. Classic tunes, great tracks throughout and a voice that really makes you listen with seriously good music to boot. Not to be missed, you maynot know the tracks by name but you'll certainly recoginse quite a few.

i know a lot of labels have tried to cash on mid-nineties indie with 'the collection' best ofs etc, even the criminally underrated Gene have one, but i've never seen anything like this: space have 4 greatest hits CDs, and only ever released 3 albums (the third album which is excellent by the way, is never a part of these compilations too). All i really want is 'Love You More Than Football', but can never get hold of it. I saw this comp in HMV and wondered if they'd kinda bundled everything on it, but sadly not. There is loads on here i'm unfamiliar with, which may be a bad thing as it could be there 'too quirky' side (Invasion) or just more nonsense like Fran In Japan.

Might be worth a punt tho

I first heard this group on a tape I bought for my sons. As a product of the late 1950s I still enjoy the groups who actually know how to sing. It is good to have this cd now that the tapes have been played to death!!

If you like a bit of space you'll love this! It is packed with all their top hit songs from the 90s.
I bought my new copy from a trader on Amazon at a real bargain price, it was shipped out to me within 2 days....

Recently saw SPACE at Fruit in Hull, went with an open mind to listen to live music. The band didn't fail and were superb, that is why I decided to purchase this CD as it has all their hits and more. Worth buying!

Half these songs are great - bang the tunes out on the motorway. Thinking about it, I don't think Space lasted very long? Half the tunes a bit 'experimental'. But for the fiver or so I paid for it, and the skip button, a great buy.
