"For some unknown reason this band produced some fantastic songs that stand the test of time.Problem is they were not around long enough,and not enough songs were made.Some will argue but to me the songs are inspirational,and can get you fired up.Now their songs do have emotion in them.Its like they realy meant what they said.The best song is Bodies.Yes i know it has not got the geatest lyrics,the subject is unusual to make a song about - abortion.But the way he sings that song,its just amazing and it realy gets to me,and when its finished you have to play it again.That song gets me going in the morning,when you just want to go back to bed.Holidays In The Sun is another great song,man that is a great song.The whole album of Bollocks was a sensation.Pretty Vacant was a hit from Bollocks and is another great song.A track that is missing from here is lonely Boy by Steve Jones.He did the bulk of guitars on Bollocks after Glen Matlock left.Sid did not play too well and hardly did anything on it.He has a tune here called My Way.Great song,hard to follow his accent without the lyrics.He did have another 2 songs not here on the Swindle which could have been put here -Something Else and Come On Everybody.But realy there is the best of them here.Its realy sad Sid died so young,but in reality he didnt contribute that much musicly to them.I have 2 concerts from their American tour in 1978.They were great shows,but you find that you end up milking the well for more Pistols tracks,there simply is not enough.Another favorite song of mine is New York,i love that tune just brilliant.No Feelings and Liar are also great tracks.There is not one bad song here."
A Nevermind Replacement? Well... kinda

"Ideally yes, this is better than Nevermind The Bollocks in terms of giving you all the essential Pistols tracks (if you get the imported 20 track version versus the 17 track version). That being said, some change in mastering must have occurred between this and the latest cd release of Bollocks because these tracks sound a little hollow ("tinny") compared to that CD.
Truthfully, the difference is not enough to bother anyone except for more astute or intense fans who are used to the sound of the songs already. So, if you're a newcomer to the Pistols, this is a great start and possibly finish to your collection. If you're already a fan and just want everything in one place, maybe not so much. Plus, it's the edited version of "No Fun", which just sort of cuts off at the end. Wish they would just sell the first disc of the boxed set separately."
