Reviews

A curious compilation, because this is not a straightforward rarities collection, but a combination of unreleased material and B-sides mixed with overlooked album cuts.

Interestingly enough, it works - for the first time I realized what a good song "English Boys" was, which I'd never noticed before because it was buried as the second to last song on The Hunter, and since this compilation also contains "Island of Lost Souls", it renders that album redundant.

As for the unreleased material, both the rocker "Underground Girl" (which alludes to the Velvet Underground) and the ballad "Suzie and Jeffrey" (which alludes to goin' to get married in its refrain) are strong. Plus there's the Spanish version of "Call Me", the French version of "Sunday Girl", and live covers of T. Rex, Bowie, and Johnny Cash.

Essential for fans, but not the place to start for beginners.
