The Best Of...
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an essential must-have for any lover of the British oi genre. It's hard to match the raw in-your-face power of the featured early singles like "ACAB" and "Sorry", with Gary Hodges' classic aggro vocals. This cd has tracks spanning the entire history of the band, and includes many hard-to-find songs. This is definitely the best introduction for those new to the band."

"the 4 skins were great, and in their words 'do not incite violence, only sing about what happens!' the stand out track on this album is obviously 'plastic gangsters,' a 2-tone ska song that reminds me of the clash circa 'give 'em enough rope' era meeting madness. it's also one of my favorites on here and i don't like ska. the first 11 tracks on this album are fairly hard to find, so it's a good addition for completists. my copy of this album is an import and has an extra disc of live tracks, consisting of the live side of 'the good, the bad, and the 4 skins' plus the 'from chaos to 1984' lp. i would suggest finding that, cause i picked it up... and all the other 4 skins discs they had were the same price. the sound and performance on the live tracks is brilliant."
