History shows this compilation was not a final farewell from the band who went on to release the excellent 'self-titled' in 2010. However, for the STP curious, this collection is a comprehensive introduction to the band and their earlier work. The unplugged version of 'Plush' is an added bonus. The accompanying DVD of MTV videos and concert footage (if you can still find it) is a visual treat and which left this viewer (having missed STP first time around) wondering what they were thinking most of the time. It is nonetheless a fascinating insight into a band when arguably they were at the top of their game. Probably not an essential purchase for the die-hard STP fan (who will no doubt rather listen to the songs in the context of the albums from which they were taken) but certainly is for more casual listeners who believe the early 90s produced some of the finest guitar based rock music ever.
