Synopsis

Amazon.com
This is a definitive best-of from the scathingly satiric, invariably tuneful band that arose from the ashes of The Housemartins. Sadly, Paul Heaton and friends have always been too twee and clever for the colonies, though classics like "My Book" and "Old Red Eyes Is Back" deserved better. A lovely, sing-along new track, "One Last Love Song," sounds like a farewell to arms, while the limited-edition disc of B sides proves that only XTC can match them in terms of high-caliber throwaways. --Jeff Bateman

CD Reviews

Another good product of British Pop & Rock... Get it!
ARMANDO R. VENEGAS | Lima, Peru | 10/25/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you like British Pop & Rock in the style of Al Stewart, 10cc, Chris Rea, and even Cliff Richard, try The Beautiful South.
I don't know much about the musical background of these guys, but they make pretty, nice Pop music. "Carry On Up The Charts" is an American-made compilation of their greatest hits, but certainly is a good one."
