A Second Surprise bonus disc on the import version...

"Mick Jones,former member of The Clash, still surprises with BAD. The sounds on this collection are more original and less dominating with regards to using samples as in the past. BAD is reminiscent of the Red Hot Chili Peppers at their best with some old Clash influences...The music is energetic,alive, and does not suffer from the candy-pop teenage garbage played on the airwaves nowadays. BAD uses so many musical styles and genres that you have to listen for yourself as to how entertaining these guys are. You want to analyze and pick apart the styles they use, but you just can't...I was fortunate to find a copy of The Globe as an Australian import that inlcudes live material on a second disc. The very last track on the live disc is somewhat questionable since it's BAD's re-make of Prince's 1999 tune (which BAD's version is not all that bad). For any novice, this title is a sure thing. However, seek out the import Aussie version w/ extra bonus live disc;no regrets..."
"B.A.D." to the bone.

"Some people might just want the "Greatest Hits", but I'd actually rather have this album. It includes "Rush" and "The Globe", two hits that any alt-radio listener would know, plus the good tracks "Can't Wait/Live" and "Innocent Child". Also here is "Green Grass", which is a fairly catchy song, and I think contains a "Kate Bush" sample. The end of the disc isn't as strong, but it's still decent. Overall this is pretty good, it's no "Clash", but good."
One for the vault.

"This is hands-down one of the best pop albums ever recorded and at the very least, one of the top 10 of the 90s. After being a little funk/sample heavy on Megatop Phoenix, they rebounded with what I will always consider to be one of the great pop masterpieces."
