If you are already a fan of FYC and are looking for the best of, then here it is.
It contains all the tunes you remember from days of yore, which is what you want - however it also contains a few new tracks (probably because there aren't that many hits to go round)which aren't so good.There is a remix of Johhny Come Home which should never have been done !!!!
But, like I said if you want to get the hits, for a good price then get it - the hits are as fantastic now as they were then !!

Once you hear Roland Gift's soaring poetic voice you realise what a unique band the Fine Young Cannibals were. Although they only released two albums 'Finest' contains the very best of both, plus two unreleased cuts - 'The Flame' and 'Since you've been gone'. A great mix of rock,R&B, mowtown and dance - something there for every occasion.

Disappointed, there's only four tracks I liked. Still good quality! I remember hearing it on tv a few years ago and thought I must get it. Was waiting for my birthday so my sister could get for me. When the time came she, couldn't get get it anywhere. I was looking through Amazon and couldn't believe my luck! Am pleased I got it.

A FYC compilation was always going to be a lumpy affair. With a back catalogue of two very different sounding albums a chronological order couldn't work so the songs are worked in to create a collage of both albums with some new songs to justify the price label.

From the self titled debut are singles `Johnny Come Home', `Funny How Love is' and the surprisingly successful cover of the Elvis standard `Suspicious Minds'. Also culled from the debut are the majestic `Blue' and equally political `Couldn't Care More'.

Second, and more successful, album `The Raw and the Cooked' gives us the brilliant singles `She Drives me Crazy' and `Good Thing' as well as Buzzcock's cover `Ever fallen in Love' as well as the priceless `Don't Look Back' and `Tell me What' with the standard only slipping with `I'm Not the Man I Used to be'.

The remainder of the album are three new songs which are pretty good particularly single `The Flame' and `Since you've Been Gone' however in the company they are sat with they seem al little weak.
A fantastic album and wonderful obituary to a truly great band.

Most of the singles are here. The Fine Young Cannibals tracks "I'm Not Satisfied", "Tired of Getting Pushed Around", "It's O.K." are not on the collection. Only one version of two to the song "She Drives Me Crazy" is present. It is a shame also that the Roland Gift singles "It's Only Money" and "Crushed" are not also featured. Hope to see a DVD of the Videos out soon.

Everyone with a heartbeat ought to be familiar with this knockout band which spent the mid to late 80's in the Charts of the world with their music featuring the excellent voice of singer, Roland Gift. One can make no excuse for the pun when saying the man is just so gifted to have been born with such an endearing and beautiful voice, sending shivers up and down the spine like an uncontrollable elevator. The music, of course, complements his vocals beautifully, making this album absolutely ideal as background music when you have friend's around, or for deeper listening when on one's own. At such a disgracefully low price, every home should have a copy of this superb Greatest Hits album.

Having been a big fan of the Beat, I therefore kept in touch with what the various members were doing afterwards. General Public were excellent, but had no success in the UK, but as we know FYC did well and deservedly so. I first saw them on The Tube & was immediately hooked. Shame they only made two 'proper' albums!
This compilation covers their career pretty well - my only gripe is the omission of the single 'I'm Not Satisfied'; Ok, it didn't make the top 40, but then neither did 'Blue' or 'Funny How Love Is'. Instead you get two (in my humble opinion) album fillers: 'Couldn't Care More' & 'Tell Me What'. I'm a bit biased because those two usually get skipped on my CD player.
Overall though, it does what it should and is a very good summary of a superb band.
