All their biggest hits, decorated by some great album tracks as well! Get Catatonic!
on 25 July 2017
A quick look at the back of this CD would suggest this would either be Catatonia's best album or the one with biggest hits and 'other' songs, thankfully, it's a bit of both!
The immediate tracks that stand out are : 'Mulder & Scully,' 'I Am The Mob,' 'Road Rage' and 'International Velvet,' all stellar tracks, all instantly recognisable, all guaranteed to give a fan of so called 'Britpop' a healthy hit of nostalgia and memories as well as aural pleasure! What makes this album great as opposed to 'good with hits,' is the strength of the lesser known tracks. 'Goldfish & Paracetamol,' 'Part Of The Furniture,' and 'Game On' are all great and might even prod your memories, while even lesser tracks like closer 'My Selfish Gene' have at least one defining moment, in this case, having one of the most wince inducing choruses you're ever likely to hear, bile and spleen...
The production is great, musicianship classy, and a lot of replay value to the album and it's songs, try listening to the intro to the title tracks and try and spot how many different things are going on at once!
