CD Reviews

Excellent introduction to the band
12/04/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This compilation spanning 12 years gives a perfect introduction to a band who hit the mark virtually every time they release a record. The six year gap after `The Domino Club' hasn't dampened their enthusiasm as the song `Ali MacGraw and Denis Law' - a Cush effort - from their newest album shows. Paul Simmonds has always been able to stir the heart with intelligent, thought provoking lyrics - `Ghost of Cable Street' and `The Colours' for example, and together with power-punching vocals from Swill and Cush, TMTCH deserve any amount of success. In my view not all of their best work is on the album - `Bounty Hunter', `Great Expectations' and `Silver Dagger' for example, but that's personal taste. Some excellent tunes are here - `Dogs Eyes, Owl Meat', `Ironmasters' `The Crest' and the three already mentioned, which alone make the album worth buying. A virgin TMTCH listener will hear this selection and certainly be hooked to get their earlier work. I recommend `Waiting for Bonaparte' and `The Domino Club' for starters."
Listen to a band self-destruct

"It's clear that the attitude and style of the band's first album wasn't something the group wanted to maintain. Their later songs, particularly Australia, that are included on this disc are really not good. Certainly they bear no resemblance to the near-greatness of Ironmasters. I used to own the vinyl lp of Night of 1000 Candles but none of their newer stuff, so I got this Best Of set to get the lay of the land. I cannot recommend this set but 3 or 4 of the songs are good enough to raise my star-ratings out of the cellar. Instead, get Night of 1000 candles and if you like it (and you will), move forward in their catalog until you can't take it anymore."
High quality

"I highly reccomend this band and this CD to anyone who's a fan of the pseudo-rock/punk sound of artists like the pogues or the oysterband. I can listen to this CD again and again, and it only seems to get better. Highly worth your money!"
