Good album collection that will bring back lots of memories for those who liked this band in the eighties. On listening to it though, it does seem a bit out dated by todays standards but saying that, it is a damn sight more listenable to than todays modern "rock" bands!! I had seen them live on a few occasions and this reminded me of the passion and energy that they portrayed when on stage. Listen and enjoy.
Magnum should have been huge and came close in the mid 80's but they remain one of Britain's most overlooked rock talents. This compilation is well put together and a good starting point for anyone looming to get into their music.
A fantastic compilation for fans and occasional listeners alike. I bought it for the car as I have most of the tracks on tape oreven vinyl. I actually prefer them live and have seen them many times over the years, this compilation is a great balance from their albums, the songs are the story of Magnum so the title is pretty apt too. I have read some criticism of the production in the 80s but it is what it is, this is how they wanted to sound then, they could reproduce it live which not all bands could do, I have always enjoyed them, some albums more than others, I won't name them as then I would get petty.
This is Magnum, enjoy their melodic sounds and great stories
I do not normally buy these compilation Albums of Magnum songs as I have all the original songs anyway and the band do not benefit from these releases. However this is an exception as I wanted something for the car. Overall it is a good selection of songs from the pre SPV days there are also some B sides and that are worth listening to as well. If your not familiar with the band than this is a great starting point for older material
One of my all time favourite compilations of Magnum and their work. All my favourite tracks are included and a must for any long car journey. It's a great album that I adore to listen to when I'm not sure which album to play, however that said, I do love the original albums to each and every track too. No compilation will replace my love for the original albums. But this is a fantastic compilation
Excellent album purchased after being blown away by The Visitation. This band has come onto my radar late but now gets more plays than any other at present. A comprehensive selection of songs to enhance my collection. It was bought after much deliberation whether to buy individual albums or not and not regretted at all. Would highly recommend
A pretty well thought out collection. However some b-sides and "rare gems" have been included at the expense of obvious classics such as Vigilante, How Far Jerusalem etc. There's never been a compilation ever released that's pleased everybody. This is a good, but not great effort. The omission of Vigilante cost it a big fat star!
Im glad I bought this album as it has several of my favourite tracks and it is great night time listening it helps me unwind after a busy day at work. Brilliant song writing by the highly underestimated Tony Clarkin complimented by Bob Catleys soaring vocals everything just falls into place excellent listening
