5.0 out of 5 stars BBR's Worst Surpasses other bands' Best August 31, 2001
Format:Audio CD
A wonderful collection of covers, remixes and other great songs relegated to b-sides. As a recent convert, these songs were beyond my reach as the early singles are long out of print. Sure, the two domestic albums have a few of these songs as bonuses (except the odd mistake on England Made Me where "Wonderful Life" is not included, despite the sleeve demarcation), but now they're all here. The closer is by far one of the best Bowie covers out there.
The music is beautiful, brutal, intriguing and intelligent all at once. Who else can use a Euro-pop song structure to discuss such "taboo" subjects as murder and homophobia (see "Straight Life" on The Facts of Life)? That's what you get when you put Luke Haines--Brittain's resident cynic--together with Jesus and Mary Chain alum John Moore. Add to that mix the gorgeous Sarah Nixey and its heaven (or hell, if you like bland Americanized pop). The Auteurs never lived up to the great expectations of giving suede a run for their money, but Black Box Recorder is right up their with Brittain's best current acts.
Plus you get the videos. This CD is an oddity in that for once we in America get the rare album, and the Brittish fans have to get the import!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection for the B-sides May 29, 2013
Format:Audio CD
This a worthwhile compilation. Although there are tracks already on previous albums, this album consist mostly of b-sides and two remixes that are hard to find or out of print. Which makes this a worthy purchase and completes your Black Box Recorder collection. Oh yeah! I forgot the music is great too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Dour August 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Worth getting just for the four splendid videos. The songs of course are wonderfully dour, like a depressed St. Etienne. If you missed their import singles, all the B-sides are collected here.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent March 24, 2002
Format:Audio CD
the 3rd album of BBR.Actually these songs are BSides and there is only 1 new song,which is Jackie Sixty. And 2 wonderful remixes. Usually i hate remixes of any band,but these are so cool,i mean remixes are usually pop/techno/dance things but these are not,they are like indie type.I suggest you should get England Made Me before this.
