    Extraordinaria colección de maravillas. Pocos grupos podrán presumir de llevar 20 años haciendo grandes discos, y de tener una colección de singles como esta. Canciones como "From despair to where", "Faster" o "A design for life" son inmortales. Solo disfruten!

    Make no mistake what's here is great stuff. Some of the greatest songs in the last 20 years are to be found here, including Motown Junk, Motorcycle Emptiness, You Love Us, Faster, A Design for Life and Masses Against the Classes. Overall it's a great introduction to the band showing far more diversity than the band's previous singles collection 'Forever Delayed'.

Overall it's a great introduction to the band showing far more diversity than the band's previous singles collection 'Forever Delayed'. However the problem comes in what is not here but what is missing. The singles from 'The Holy Bible' (excluding Faster) are the weaker tracks from the album and the lack of anything from Journal for Plague Loves is really criminal with it being one of the band's best albums. It's still a brilliant album and an ideal gift for anyone who has shown a passing interest in the band. Hopefully it will lead to more people checking out the rest of the band Expand

    Starts loud, alienated and proudly rockist, and stays right there. [Jan 2012, p. 93]

    Through these two discs, the band's highs, tragedies, slumps, and comebacks are all evident.

    These singles show that Manic Street Preachers have stayed true to one at least one of their ideals – which is to write the best songs they possibly could.
