4 stars Good compilation. Excellent compilation. Fantastic compilation! And no matter what tracks from 1980s are collected here (Pastpresent covers only Clannad's second period), what's important is that there are The Hunter and World Of Difference in the track list. Two brilliant songs from late 1980s unavailable on the band's other releases. Well, more precisely, the former was released in 1989 on single, but not together with the latter, side two was occupied by a theme from Atlantic Realm, no idea why. Only a truncated instrumental edit of World Of Difference can be heard in the end of the aforesaid album Atlantic Realm (and hope no need to explain that it's not enough!), while its entire version with vocals, to my knowledge, remained unreleased until Pastpresent. So, I'm not afraid to be accounted an extravagant freak if I give this compilation four stars just for two songs, all the more that in its entirety, it introduces 1980s Clannad to the audience quite well.
