AllMusic Review by

This Are Two Tone is a classic collection of the label's seminal ska-revival hits, highlighted by cuts from Madness ("Madness"), Selecter ("On My Radio," "Too Much Pressure"), the [English] Beat ("Ranking Full Stop," "Tears of a Clown"), Bodysnatchers ("Too Experienced"), and several singles from the Specials ("Gangsters," "Rudy, A Message to You," "Stereotype," "Ghost Town"). Although the double-disc Two Tone Compilation: A Checkered Past is a more comprehensive set, This Are Two Tone remains an excellent, 16-song primer.
