3 stars Not sure what all the fuss is about here. ALL bands try to reach out to the non-fans' by compiling a selection of their work. Now you notice I didn't say BEST work, because to say what songs rate as the best in a band's canon is purely subjective. This being said, this is a totally solid and entertaining edit of the band's career. Granted, it's the cd that my wife would have instead of a studio album, but that's just what a hits' record is aimed at, the people who want to find out about a band's music without buying six records. Does it do it's job? I think it does - but best ofs almost never please fans and usually turn on a newbie to a groups sound and if they like what they hear here, they will probably seek out the studio releases. Not essential to hardcore fans, but a respectable jumping off point for unbelievers.
