Another set where the greatest hits package is a better option
on 25 July 2012
This is a straight-up set of their first four albums plus 1994's Last of the Independents (missing out 1990's Packed.) No bonus tracks or extras that I can see so the question, as it often is with these sets, is it worth getting this in preference to one of their greatest hits packages? The first (Pretenders) and third (Learning to Crawl) albums still sound good but they sound good mainly because of the wall-to-wall hit singles - the other three albums are inferior although each still produced an excellent single or two but my conclusion is that a greatest hits package at less than half the price is a better option.
