AllMusic Review by

This comprehensive best-of from the British post-punk rockers gathers 1980s indie hits like "Chinese Take Away" and "Steamroller (My Baby Got Run Over By A)," as well as their take on Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" (the band's image was modeled on the droogs in Stanley Kubrick's film, CLOCKWORK ORANGE). Their evolution from 1980s punks to polished '90s rockers is apparent in the radical difference between the DIY sound of the original "Viva La Revolucion" and its more professional later incarnation.
