AllMusic Review by

This ridiculously affordable retrospective of tunes from cult British rockers the Wildhearts features all of their best cuts from their '90s heydays, along with enough B-sides and rarities to please even the most ardent fan. The group's blend of glam rock, Faces-inspired lunacy and AC/DC swagger pre-dated new hard rock revivalists like the Darkness and Buckcherry, and while their lewd, loud and rebellious spirit never quite made the leap across the pond to the U.S, tracks like "Nothing Ever Changes But the Shoes" and "Greetings from Shitsville" will appeal to brawlers and boozers wherever they lay their bloody little heads.
