CD Reviews

Do Not Buy This CD! Do Not Buy This CD!
Paul ( | New York | 10/09/1999
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Do not buy this CD! The selections on this CD are some of the best Upstart songs, the problem is that these are not the original recordings that were released on vinyl years ago. The recordings are not even acceptable alternate versions. Droogskins comment that this is the best Upstart album has to be a joke of some sort. For all you young ones starting out, try and get your hands on the Upstarts first (best of), Angel Dust. It blows this garbage to pieces."
Sounds like a bad bootleg
Steve Roby | Ottawa, Canada | 12/22/1999
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Most of this sounds like a live album without crowd noises, aside from a few songs that sound like badly taped copies of old records. As someone who's been curious about the Angelic Upstarts but doesn't really know their material, I'd have to say this is darn near worthless. The album cover and insert are completely uninformative. You see this in a record store or advertised online, and assume that it is what it claims to be: a compilation of the band's best songs. But there are no liner notes, no discography, no source information. The sound isn't very good. For all intents and purposes, this might as well be a bootleg. And a lousy one at that."
Crud on Plastic: Not What I Expected
C. Jannuzi | Fukui, Japan | 12/13/2000
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Note: the low rating refers only to the quality of the recording, not the group or their songs.I bought this CD from another source which, unlike Amazon, did not reveal fan reviews and the like. It just said that it was a great collection of an essential punk group (UK OI type). I think the Upstarts are a great, great group badly, badly misserved by this compilation. I have to agree with the consensus--terrible recording sound, worse than many bootlegs. The sound is so thin, you just can't imagine how awful it is; it has no hope of capturing the power and majesty of this group.If the group consented to this release, they must have decided to cash in."
