Well re-mastered with a good range of decent material
on 3 December 2016
Satisfying 15 track compilation which pulls together 6 songs from the highly acclaimed debut album with the likes of 'I Wanna Be Adored', 'She Bangs The Drum', 'Made Of Stone' and the glorious 'I Am The Resurrection' as well as 4 decent cuts from 'Second Coming' including 'Ten Storey Love Song' and a shorter, punchier version of 'Breaking Into Heaven'. Crucially there are 5 non-album tracks included here with the swirling power of 'Fool's Gold', 'Elephant Stone' and 'One Love' leading the way. No doubt fans of the group would have had a different running list; for me 'Tears' and 'Good Times' would have been included and 'Don't Stop' is a strange omission but, if you're looking for a solid, representation of what the 'Roses' were all about then this is the album to buy and, it has to be said, the re-mastering is absolutely on the money (the original studio versions of these songs sound muddy by comparison). Overall, this is a well conceived project and is well worth the investment.
