5.0 out of 5 stars "Beautiful Chaos", December 12, 2003
This review is from: Here Came The Psychedelic Furs: B-Sides & Lost Grooves (Audio CD)
Casual fans of the Psychedelic Furs will probably want to pass on B-sides and Lost Grooves for the title is exactly what it is. More serious fans or those who want to start getting into the music of the Furs will appreciate this collection. With rare tracks and remixes from 1982-88, there is not one filler or inferior song in the bunch. All the non-LP B-sides are more than album worthy and the remixes are excellent. Even the 7:20 "Shock" remix is worth one's time. The live version of "No Easy Street" is wonderful.
To me, the real gems are the B-sides which start off this CD. "Aeroplane" (B-side to "Love My Way") is the epitome of the "beautiful chaos" of which Arthur Levy writes in the informative CD booklet. "Birdland" (B-side to "All That Money Wants") is as good as most of the tracks on any Furs album. "New Dream" (from the "Heartbreak Beat" 12") is a nice, lounge-sounding song. My favorite, however, is "Badman" (from the promo "Should God Forget" 12"). "Badman" is a haunting rocker that is one of the best Furs songs I have ever heard. Finally, this CD was put together with much care, with release dates and sources for each track and a nice 7-page article.
