  1. Sewed Soles makes out decently for a greatest hits disc.
  2. Reconstituted garage rock was thought to be losing appeal, but in the genre the Greenhornes make a strong claim to be your new favourite band.
  3. As a primer on The Greenhornes, Sewed Soles works best.
  4. Despite the variety and many obvious influences... the Greenhornes leave their own unique fingerprint on every song. [Feb 2006, p.126]
  5. 70
    Has all the signs of a band of epic, pop potential. [Jan/Feb 2006, p.94]
  6. Provides a fitting overview. [#12, p.96]
  7. This is pedestrian, derivative twaddle of the lowest order that embarasses both the '60s and the recent revival fad. [21 Jan 2006, p.33]

    The funniest thing about the critics reviews above is the NME - this ridiculous summation sums up everything that most music lovers already know about this pathetic publication. And they have the gall to push crap like the Arctic Monkeys, Kaiser Chiefs - Ha Ha Ha! Meanwhile, the Greenhornes is great - honest, passionate and totally rock n roll. This is an excellent compilation and has already motivated me to explore their other albums. Expand
