I bought this CD second hand and it has to be one of the best buys I'veever made. This album brings together punk and new wave classics, and acts as a great introduction to the music from the late 1970s/early 1980s. It even reminds me of a time I wasn't even alive in, and that can only be a good thing. Anyone interested in music from this era should start with this album, and see how great music was back then. Even if you don't like all the tracks, I guarantee that 'Another Girl Another Planet' will become one of your favourite songs ever.

If you were born in the mid 1960's this CD will perfectly recreate your teens. A wonderfully diverse collection of raw, sometimes violent, always powerful tunes. I must've listened to this CD (and previously the tape) more than any other I own. GET IT !!!!

What a great little collection... I had this on tape and it lived in my walkman through the early 90's... I've subsequently downloaded most of the sourced albums, but it's a great little collection for the car.

A superb album so that we can all sit back with our Espresso Lattes with one eye on BBC News 24 and listen to what was going on in our rebellious past. Every track on this album brings back memories for me. HOWEVER!!! - why are Squeeze mentioned on the cover when they have no track on the album? Answers on a postcad please. Shame because were a great band - I saw them supporting The Tubes at Hammersmith Odeon and it is still one of the best double bills I've ever been to.

Punchy collection of the edgy best from the era, a true history lesson for those that were not lucky enough to be going down the local youth club on a Friday night at the time.
