AllMusic Review by

Ironically enough for a compilation called The Squeeze Story, this 2006 double-disc set does not follow a chronological order and thereby tell a story. Instead, this 38-track set tosses hits, album tracks, and relative rarities in almost a random order, so the latter-day "Electric Trains" appears just two tracks before "Black Coffee in Bed." Some sticklers may complain about this seemingly haphazard sequencing, but the non-chronological order winds up emphasizing the depth of Difford and Tilbrook's songbook and, in the process, winds up being one of the best Squeeze compilations yet assembled.
