Here we go AGAIN. Another "Best Of" compliation by The Pogues. Yeah, these are good songs (in fact, the track listing here reads like a setlist from almost any one of their post-reunion shows) but since this has all been compiled before on NUMEROUS occasions, one has to question if it's necessary at this point. Don't get me wrong... I LOVE The Pogues. I've seen them across the globe, tracked their music down to even its hardest to find tidbits, and turned many people into fans along the way. But I'm not buying these comps anymore. It's time for the Pogues to get off the reunion circuit, out of the compilation routine, and BACK INTO THE STUDIO (while there is still time). After 12 years of being back together (and playing the same hits the entire way) it's time.

If you only want to get one Pogues CD, this is it. Remastered sound, and a great selection of tracks. If you ever need to hold a detective's funeral, that song is on here. ("The Wire" fans will know what I mean.)

You can't beat a Pogues collection. I know there is a "best of" Pogues CD, but that album misses some greats such as Sick Bed of Cuchulainn, Sally Maclennane and the Boys from County Hell.

I have heard of The Pogues for a very long time....I have a lot of good Irish music, both contemporary and classic....The Pogues are a great combination of both....and made me frustrated at myself for waiting so long to not only buy their music but to listen...One of my favorite CD's that I downloaded onto the Ipod/Iphone...I can listen to them over and over while I am at work...They have some great covers and original....I am sure most who made read this already know about The Pogues...If you don't, you are not sure...Do yourself a favor and start with this CD you'll be a fan for life....

I recently purchased the 30th anniversary Pouges live double album (highly recommended), and The very best of the Pouges had a few songs that were not on the album. Edgy Irish music with a folk/punk/alternative influence.

The Pogues are, admittedly, an acquired taste. However, if you like Celtic music, there's enough original Celtic content to make The Pogues interesting and entertaining.
