Recently re-formed My Life Story has shoved out this "Best Of" seemingly in response to that event. Normally these sorts of packages signify the end of a career, not the possible renaissance of one but this band does not deserve sniffy disdain. A terrific singles band and a phenomenally vivacious live act this collection is, if anything, way way overdue.

Comprising 17 tracks which include two previously unreleased tracks -"The Dice Man " and "Here Comes The Big Weekend" this collection handily collates virtually all the camp highlights from their patchily brilliant albums "Mornington Crescent " , "The Golden Mile" and "Joined Up Talking". Anyone who is unaware of this band is either in for a treat or will feel like someone has coated their tongue in a paste mixed with lard and dog excrement depending on how you view effervescent pop songs played with admirable brio and no little technique by a glorious 12 piece orchestra. I'm quite partial myself so when this lot fetched up in 1993 with their debut single " Girl A ,Girl B , Boy C", a typical flamboyant pop diamond, I was happier than an England footballers wife/ girlfriend let loose in an exclusive hand bag shop . Even better they went on to top it with some of their following singles, which incidentally usually made the top forty. "Sparkle " was I believe released twice( Once Under the title "You Don't Sparkle ( In My Eyes)"), and has one of those infectiously hummable melodies and a string arrangement that is so unrepentantly joyous it would make Jack Dee buy a pogo stick just so he could bounce around enough to do the song justice. "12 Reasons Why I Love Her" meanwhile stomps around like a Transformers Villain overdosing on candy.

A joyous collection of pop-tastic orchestral reflections on contemporary life. Tracks such as 'King of Kissingdom' will make you smiley and bouncy, 'You can't uneat the apple' never fails to move me to tears. The hidden track is a fabulously over-indulgent extended '12 reasons why I love her', enough to brighten anyone's day. If you ever enjoyed a My Life Story track then this album is a must, especially as the entire back catalogue has now been deleted. For those who are not familiar with the band - think the genius of the Divine Comedy with a large helping of Britpop. Spine-tingling stuff.

Just an annoying CD. I put it in my car stereo to sooth my M25 commute...and it gave me road rage instead. I love most genres of music, but unfortunately could not warm to "Sex & Violins", so just can't recommend it...sorry! My Life Story was a quickly forgotten 90's "pop band" and I know why now. IMHO, this is an overindulgent mess of an album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding.... 24 April 2012

My Life Story was a Brit-Pop band from the mid 1990's.
Sadly overlooked during their time, they released 3 different CDs and this one is a 'Best of' set.
All the songs are very catchy and full of strings and orchestras .
Highly recommended!
