AllMusic Review by

One of the endless repackages of the early-to middle-Golden Palominos' material. The Palominos are a transient band led by their one constant member, Anton Fier. Tracks here come from their 1983 self-titled EP; their auspicious Visions of Excess full-length in 1985; A Blast of Silence in '86, and A Dead Horse in 1989. Guest vocalists include John Lydon, Jack Bruce, Michael Stipe, Syd Straw, Matthew Sweet, Peter Blegvad, and others. This is fine music to be sure, but its appearance is completely anti-climactic, since it has been reissued countless times without even one decent remaster.
