AllMusic Review by

A short sharp compilation of Undertones favorites, The Best of the Undertones starts out in the right place with 1978's era-defining "Teenage Kicks," then serves up 11 further examples of how the Northern Ireland heroes recorded some of the best pop-punk of the '70s and early '80s, including "Get Over You," "My Perfect Cousin," and "Jimmy Jimmy." There's a reason that all but one of their first 12 singles charted in the U.K. (most of them highly), and 11 of those singles are right here.
