CD Reviews

A great album for new Archers fans to start with.

"Compilation albums can be really be a great help for someone who wants to start listening to a band that they've just been introduced to. Because they take a large sampling of styles from a lot of albums, compilation albums can help a new listener decide what albums to buy and not buy in the future.Though I was introduced to the Archers through the disc "Vs. The greatest of all time", I wish that I could have been introduced through this album. Though I like greatest, it is a very short album, ported from a smaller piece of vinyl. Through this album, my Archers collection has gone from 2 discs to a total of 7. It is definately worth the purchase of this disc just to have a good sampling of archers music (which, for the record, makes great party music if played loud enough)Notable tracks include: "Wrong", "Mutes in the Steeple", "Revenge", and "Powerwalker.""
Odds-n-sods AOL collection

"This 4th release from AOL is a collection of alternate versions, b-sides, covers and early demos. It is an essential for anyone who would like to see the evolution of this great band, and also offers lots of great songs that can't be found anywhere else. The versions of "Wrong", "Web in Front", and "Backwash" are all pre-Icky Mettle and sound a little different from the versions on that disc. A bit more raw and rough around the edges. I don't think they contain quite the same energy, though. Unreleased songs like "Ethel Merman", "Quinn Beast", and "Telepathic Traffic" are some of my abolute favorites. "Telepathic Traffic" features something that is very rare in an AOL song: an acoustic guitar. And it fits perfectly. The rest of the songs are from split EPs or from their Peel Session appearance, and aren't really all that wonderful. Still, this is another must-buy."
Not just a b-side collection.

"Although their proper albums aren't bad by any means, "The Speed Of Cattle" is arguably the Archers Of Loaf's best work. Spanning from sneering, avant-punk rave-ups ("Bathroom," "What Did You Expect?") to anthemic, driving tracks ("Tatyana," "Quinnbeast,") to slower melodic numbers, ("Don't Believe The Good News," "Bacteria") every facet of the Archers sound is perfectly captured in this collection."
