4.0 out of 5 stars British Invasion beyond the two U.S. hits March 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Troggs may be familiar for their garage rock anthem, "Wild Thing," and their post-Summer-of-love 1968 flower-power hit "Love is All Around," but there is more to be heard in between - something that Oldies radio's tight playlists doesn't reveal to modern-day listeners.
Mercury's eleven track collection provides several of the missing pieces, starting with the band's five UK-only chart hits. These include the stellar "With a Girl Like You," the Chip Taylor penned "Any Way That You Want Me," and the superb bubblegum-pop "Give it to Me." Also included are the Louie Louie styled rocker "I Want You" and the original ballads "Little Girl" and "You Can Cry if You Want To."
Though they never achieved the fame of contemporaries like The Kinks, The Troggs certainly had more to offer than a pair of hits would lead you to believe. This collection takes in the obvious highpoints, which is probably enough for those just wanting to get beyond the shorthand of Oldies radio. All tracks in gloriously punchy AM-ready mono!

3.0 out of 5 stars British garage rock August 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The Troggs were a British garage rock back that also had its fair share of bubblegum tunes and ballads. Of course, they're best known for their garage rock anthem "Wild Thing" which knocked Tommy James' "Hanky Panky" off the top of the Billboard Top 40 chart. It was written by an American, Chip Taylor who also had a huge hit with "Angel of the Morning."

The Troggs also had one other huge hit, the ballad "Love Is All Around" which peaked at #2. I've heard this song a million times but I never realized it was them. The rest of this 11 song collection is a mixed bag with the strongest cuts being the very catchy "With A Girl Like You", "I Want You" which sounds like "Wild Thing" meets "Louie Louie" and "I Can't Control Myself". This song was banned on many American radio stations as being too orgasmic. You mustn't ever be too orgasmic.

The Troggs are rock 'n' roll immortals on the strength of one song, namely their only #1 hit single, "Wild Thing." This is, of course, the three-chord song that Jimi Hendrix was playing at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival when he set his guitar on fire and what the Cleveland Indians play every thing "Wild Thing" Vaughn comes in to the game to pitch in "Major Leagues." With the Troggs we are talking proto-punk, and the only problem with "20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best ofthe Troggs" is that we only have 11 total tracks here, which is barely enough to give you a taste of what the group really sounded like once you got beyond their signature song.

The problem with the Troggs is that once you get past "Wild Thing" most people will be hard pressed to name another song the group recorded and the best offerings here are certainly not similar to "Wild Thing" in sound. "Love Is All Around" is their second best song, the only other Troggs tune to crack the Top 5 in the U.S.A., and it is a flower power ballad, which is as far from caveman rock as you can get. "With a Girl Like You" and "I Can't Control Myself," are the best songs on the next tier, and the common denominator is that all three of these songs were written by lead singer and guitarist Reg Presley (Chip Taylor wrote "Wild Thing," originally recorded by a New York group called The Wild Ones). So the big irony with the Troggs is that their signature song is the musical exception to the group's sound. However, there is a commonality in terms of their lyrics, where Presley often manages to introduce an element of lust in the equation.

The Troggs were formed in Andover, England, and were always much more successful on that side of the Pond (the group rarely toured in the U.S.).

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish it had more! June 13, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is a good collection for beginners, but I wish it had more. I would buy a 6-Disc Troggs box set and probably enjoy every second of it. Of course, they're best known for "Wild Thing", but they had so much more to offer. Some of my favorites include "From Home", "With A Girl Like You", "I Can Only Give You Everything", "I Can't Control Myself", and "Too Much Of A Good Thing". It's nearly impossible to find anything but "Greatest Hits" collections from these guys. Even the original albums on vinyl are tough to find. Luckily I have a friend who used to own a record store that has tons of this type of stuff, but I'd love to own the real thing. I guess I'll have to hold out hope that Rhino or somebody like that reissues some of their albums. This CD, though, is a great deal for anyone just getting a taste of The Troggs, one of the best and most overlooked bands of the 60's.

3.0 out of 5 stars TROGG HEAVEN July 28, 2013
Format:Audio CD
THE TROGGS-THE BEST OF THE TROGGS: Seldom mentioned in even the upper echelon of Brit Invasion bands, THE TROGGS will always be most closely identified with their mid sixties garage rock juggernaut WILD THING, surely the only sex anthem ever to feature an ocarina solo. Songwriter CHIP TAYLOR's towering ode to lust has been regularly resurrected over the decades...JIMI HENDRIX's bloozey meltdown, FANCY, whose orgasmic singer HELEN CAUNT, a former Penthouse Pet, upped the raunch factor by several notches, and punk outfit X represent but a few admirers. Popular follow ups found THE TROGGS charting a very different musical course, including the semi psychedelic ballad LOVE IS ALL AROUND and the bah-bah-bah-bah-bubblegummy WITH A GIRL LIKE YOU, featuring leader REG PRESLEY's lo-fi vocals and the band's uncomplicated, radio-ready instrumentation. Nothing else on BEST OF stands out quite as loudly and proudly as that hat-trick of hits, even though THE RAMONES paid tribute by remaking their horny cult classic I CAN'T CONTROL MYSELF on their all covers ACID EATERS platter...a further example of THE TROGGS' enduring influence.

RATING: THREE TROGLODYTES
