CD Reviews

A great forgotten punk band
punkviper | Pittsburgh, PA USA | 06/11/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you consider yourself a disciple of '77 style British socio-political punk, then you simply cannot be without this. The holy trinity of punk rock (IMHO) goes like this: The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers, and The Ruts. They are that good. All 3 bands adeptly blend punk, rock, reggae, and pop to form a tremendously explosive and worthy musical artform. This 1-disc overview has thankfully continued to be in-print for some time now, allowing people to hear the greatness that was cut short by drug addiction. Not the most well-known punk band, but more deserved of punk notoriety than 3/4 of the bands that have gotten famous since '77. This is vital stuff."
Punk at its Best

"What a great album, if you were an avid fan of the Ruts like me, you probably already have this album, but if not, give this one a try. I guarantee if you liked Hanx by SLF and all the Clash stuff you will enjoy this album."

"if you were in england or listening to the punk scene in the 70's then the Ruts were a hard act to miss. Most tracks here came from the The Knack album which oozed killer tracks such as Babylons Burning and Jah War. Sadly the lead singer(*.owens, it has been 20 years!) died and the Ruts were despatched to the safety pin heaven, but the mark was left. if you like Clash-ish music with a ruff edge then buy this greatest hits. you will not be disappointed."
