AllMusic Review by

Containing every track from Greatest Hits, Vol. 1 (but this time, in chronological order) and adding ten more Mentals gems, this is the ultimate introduction to one of Australia's finest pop/rock outfits. Fans of Squeeze and Nick Lowe's side of Rockpile will be foaming at the mouth after hearing this very fine collection of Mentals classics. Yes, all the hits are here, including "Live It Up," "You're So Strong," "The Nips Are Getting Bigger," and "If You Leave Me, Can I Come Too?." Though the track listing is perfect, why choose the non-single "Dorothy Parker's Hair" from the album Garage over singles like "Calling Colin" or "Just My Luck"? Then again, that's a minor point. Twenty-four tracks in all.
