AllMusic Review by

Spectrum's 2012 budget-line collection That's Entertainment offers 20 tracks from the Jam, including some of their biggest hits --"Going Underground," "Eton Rifles," "Town Called Malice," "Strange Town," "Down in the Tube Station at Midnight," "The Modern World" -- several of its celebrated B-sides ("The Butterfly Collector"), and a bunch of album tracks, many of which are good, a few of which are mildly puzzling. Taken as a whole, this is hardly a representative overview of the Jam's prime, but as an affordable sampler that whets the appetite for bigger, better collections, it's not bad.
