The Best Wombles Album So Far, Vol. 1 is an excellent single-disc collection showcasing 17 of their finest songs. Though on the surface the music may seem more a novelty than anything else, this collection is ample proof of the brilliance of their recordings. Mike Batt's songs cover a broad musical canvas, offering a survey of many styles ranging from whimsical musichall-inspired British pop and over-the-top orchestral prog-rock to country, blues, and even barbershop quartet -- all songs chronicling the furry creatures' never-ending quest to rid the land of trash.
