3.0 out of 5 stars
Money for old rope, 15 May 2003
This is a nicely packaged offering with a great booklet featuring interesting band member assessments of the songs contained. Unfortunately, there is way too much repetition (e.g. 3 similar sounding versions of the very average single Fine Time, 3 similar versions of Crystal and the o.k. single version and awful album version of Bizarre Love Triangle).
Basically, you need the program button of your cd player, particularly on the Live and Club discs - there are some atrocities on these, in particular a diabolical remix of Blue Monday.
There's too much overlap with Substance. This appears a release primarily for the dedicated fan. At least they didn't release a Substance pt 2 (the b sides definitely went downhill from the Technique era onwards).
