4.4 out of 5 stars
Format: Audio CD|Change

on 6 December 2011
'Standards' is definatley one for the car and is a good basic covering of the Neath rockers career spanning from early rebel rousers such as '68 Guns' and 'Where Were You Hiding (When the Storm Broke)' to the more commercial Rain in the Summertime' and epic 'Unsafe Building'.

'Absolute Reality' is the pinnacle track here and relly kicks in mid album. This is in fact (in my view) the Alarm's best track ever encapsulating what the band was all about sitting alongside the more well known 'Spirit of 76' and 'Strength.'

The album does dip a bit with 'So This is Christmas' and a 'New South Wales' yet the Alarm manage to pull this out of the bag as the Welsh male voice choir add suitably to the bands punk origins. And of course it all naturally all leads to 'Going Out in a Blaze of Glory!'

The sooner this band is back on the road as the full Alarm then the better. My hands are held up high!

A collection of Mike Peters and his men at their very best. Powerful, emotive, anthemic songs with passion and guts!

This album does not have Devolution Working Man Blues on it, despite what the Amazon and Windows Media Player track listing says. This was one of the reasons I bought the album and now feel somewhat cheated. Yes the rest of the album is what you would expect for a greatest hits, but please describe the product properly!

This Cd is an absolute must for any serious rock n roll music lover , The opening track the road really kicks in and is agreat song to listen to whilst crusin down the road , then kicks on through the fantastic unsafe building , the smash hit 68 guns and through all the bands other greatest songs including the Lennon cover of Happy Xmas ( war is over ) - this cd really captures the power and the passion of one of the eighties most underrated bands - highly recommended

I have always been very sceptical about buying on line as I had never done it before. You read and you can almost disbelieve. But what I read was the truth and I am a delighted retailer who now believes what I read and have since ordered more cd's on line. So thank you for telling me the truth and long may I continue being a online happy shopper!!
