As you say, why has it taken so long for this to come out? Three of the tracks appeared on the Crystal Days boxset but why they've been keeping the rest from us is anyone's guess. You can never have too many versions of these songs.

Great album this. Lovely artwork by John and/or Chris as usual.

I see they're touring in November as well, might have to get out to see them.

I loved NMA in the late 80s/early 90s. Saw them live loads of times. I was a crusty back then, dreads and para boots. I didn't go as far as buying my clogs from Hebden Bridge though :) Just listening to [i]No Rest For The Wicked[/i], what a great album. Lost track of them in the late 90s, I'll give this one a listen though.

I didn't get this album at first. Back in the day when you bought an album on reputation only, before hearing it, I couldn't understand why it wasn't the punk album I'd read about. Then I realised I'm an idiot and it's bloody brilliant.

Lots of good stuff here. I'd place Slowdive at number one although Deerhunter would probably be joint first. I didn't rate the MBV comeback much but I'd still have them top ten. I might tackle part two of this as there's a few bands I can think of, Spectres, Lorelle Meets the Obsolete, TVAM. Not sure I'll get another 100 though but it's fun to try.

I enjoyed this, definitely one of my favourite ambient albums in recent years.

Mine would be The Idiot. It's just so sleazy and I can just imagine him and Dave in Berlin.

I'm not so sure I agree about his past, I think his lyrics can be taken both ways. He once supported Madness in the early 90s, in front of a load of skinhead fans, draped in the Union Flag. He got a lot of stick for that and at the time I wasn't sure if he was goading them or trying to win over new fans. This latest stunt is him finally revealing his true colours in my opinion. He makes absolutely no sense, one of his biggest fan bases are Hispanic Americans, if he agrees with For Britain's policies of ridding Britain of Muslims, shouldn't he agree with Trump's view on Latin Americans?

If like me you can't bear to listen to Yellow Submarine and other duff tracks, I'd recommend buying the box set with all of their albums and singles and make your own compilation. I'm not a fan of their early stuff so my comp starts with Paperback Writer and it's then a brilliant 40 track mix.
