I first came to hear The The when I was introduced to 'Uncertain Smile' on 12" version. I was smitten instantly by it's uniqueness and depth. The album version though shorter is as good but it would have been better if the 12" version was included. However, although 'Uncertain Smile' is a stand out track, there are no weaker songs on the CD.
If you are new to The The then this is a good starting point. Buy.
