Amoeba Review

Tiffany Anders 12/01/2010

This impressive double-disc collection of the UK’s most underrated post-punk darlings, The Only Ones, is the most thorough collection out there: it contains all three of their studio albums, including their self-titled debut, Even Serpents Shine, and Baby’s Got A Gun as well as bonus tracks and singles. While this group is most well-known for their brilliant single “Another Girl, Another Planet,” this collection unearths several other tasty tracks to be savored. “No Solution” is an angst-ridden beauty filled with the torment of romantic love gone wrong and delivered with singer Peter Perrett’s signature dry vocal style. “The Beast” has the swagger of a Southwest cow-punk band like The Gun Club. “From Here To Eternity” is stunning. The band’s singles, such as “Peter And The Pets” and the up-tempo rocker “As My Wife Says,” are also delightful gems. A thorough retrospective of a band that should’ve been bigger than they were, this collection is a must-have. Read More
