CD Reviews

The best of the 1980s college rock bands
J. Simon | Canton, Michigan | 01/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Echo and the Bunnymen. Better than the Smiths, the Cure, Depeche Mode, REM, etc. although all of those bands are great too. A great rythm section, one of the most inventive guitarists of the era, and arguably the genre's greatest frontman, perhaps one of rock's greatest. "The Killing Moon" is one of the best songs of the 1980s, up there with "Love Will Tear Us Apart" and "Just Like Honey" in the alternative/indie canon. This is a great collection of songs from the band's first five albums. It fails to include "The Puppet" which is on the "Songs to Learn and Sing" compilation, but it adds "Villiers Terrace, All That Jazz, Over the Wall, The Disease, People Are Strange, The Game, Lips Like Sugar," and "Bedbugs and Ballyhoo," making it the superior collection. Buy it."
Even more songs to learn and sing.

"This import collection is far superior to their other "Songs To Learn And Sing" disc. It reminds me of how much better the Police import "Greatest Hits" is than the "Classics" album. "Ballyhoo" is 18 tracks, and includes songs like "Over The Wall", "The Game", and the cover of "People Are Strange" that the other collection missed. Plus it has "Lips Like Sugar", which I think is one of the best alternative songs of the 80's. If you hesitate to get this because of the price, I bought it used through Amazon for less than half that amount, and in perfect condition. A must for fans of The Cure, Smiths, etc."
Great intro to some great music...

"I first heard "killing moon" in the movie "Donnie Darko" and I investigated a bit and found it and many other great tracks, by a precursor to bands like the flaming lips... Some songs remind me of coldplay. (I mean no insult, i'm a Canadian teenager who knows no better.) Anyway... good compilation to get you hooked before digging deeper. Get it and enjoy..."
