The Celebrate-3-disc collection from april 2013 is in chronological order, which always works better, at least for me.

I think the best idea was to do a Street Fighting Years boxset (30th anniversary). At least much more interesting than another greatest hits collection (apart from it being edits/single versions). Sometimes I wonder what goes on in those minds of record company people. This just feels uninspired.

I’m sure it’s the Xmas greed scenario. Let’s how many other artists announce best ofs in the next month or so.

personally I think the band is back to another creative crisis. The new track here is very-far from being unmissable , their last album was awful. Their best recent work for me was Big Music. This is another useless release. Pity

I agree Big Music was a good album. This greatest hits to me is pointless as the Celebration set was pretty well done. It’s too soon for another best of.
