Reviews & Opinions

A fairly standard retrospective that, for no reason whatsoever, doesn’t include ‘Your Generation’ (arguably their most exciting song), and substitutes a previously unissued largely vocal-free version of ‘Wild Youth’ for the proper version. All the other faves are there, but this isn’t all that good a place to start.
