"This reales is a fairly good representation of their work witha few glaring mistakes. Overall, most of the tracks are outstanding for the long suffering fans. The foremost Missionaires must admit that the "Sour Puss" track has no bussines on this album or anyone else's. The other new release track is thankfully in stark contrast to it. "Afterglow" (an improved version from its orignal)is something I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF. Sum and Substance lacks important early material from releases such as The First Chapater, I, II, III or V. "Island in a Stream"'s, "Serpent's Kiss"'s, and "ForeverMore"'s omission is unforgiveable and fails to fully give a complete picture of the The Mission's depth and talent. No Greatest Hits album can please everyone, but the group should seriosly reconsider their overall selection for this one. "Beyond the Pale", "Wasteland", "Deliverance", and "Never Again" are some of their best works, but undoubteldy not all. This is not a waste to purchase but it lacks the Great Picture that it could be and should be. This band offers much more. I have enjoyed Sum And Substance though I may just Edit out "Sour Puss." ---with Hope for Always"

"A long time fan of Mission UK and Wayne Hussey (formerly with Sisters of Mercy) I was delighted to find this CD which takes the best of the songs from my vinyl memories and compiles and remixes them into one glorious gothrock experience! The classics (Wasteland, Tower of Strength, Deliverance) are here in untouched glory, and awesome remixes of Like a Child Again and Beyond the Pale are even better than the originals. Rounding out the collection are a few songs that were less popular, but no less impressive (Butterfly on a Wheel is now one of my favorite tunes!). Only Amelia does not belong on this set (what a godawful thing to write about, much less consider a "greatest hit"). All in all, a must have for Mission UK fans, and a great start for anyone wanting to dabble in the moody soulfull sound of goth. Go for it!"

"The only word I can use to describe this cd. One of the best things I bought this year, but if you are not sure if this style of music are for you, listen to Wasteland and Severina, if you liked BUT IT!!! The others are wonderful...It's a shame Amazon doesn't have the band's newest CDs... the imported are too espensive..."
