The world needs another compilation of Damned material like it needs another collective hole in the head. BUT the world certainly could use a definitive collection of their best, and now we finally have it. This isn't just a selection of early Chiswick tunes, it isn't a mishmash of live tracks, and not another remix conflagration of their late 80's/90's goth period. It's the best from 76 to 86, spread fairly evenly and representing all of their albums in that time period. Though as a footnote, there were ~6,000 editions pressed with 2 versions of Smash It Up Pt.2 instead of including both Pt.1 and Pt.2
The first disc has 21 tracks, 7 tracks from each of their 1st 3 albums: Damned Damned Damned, Music For Pleasure, and Machine Gun Etiquette. One might want more from DDD and MGE, seeing as how MFP was never that popular, but give them credit for anthologizing everything. Most of the classic punk tunes that everyone recognizes are found on this 1st disc. Residing on the 2nd disc is when The Damned's sound turned toward more of a goth approach. 5 tracks from The Black Album, 4 tracks from Strawberries, 1 from Phantasmagoria, and 2 from Anything. Along with those are 2 singles, Lovely Money and Eloise. This disc seems weighted properly, as the last 2 albums are properly underrepresented. The only glaring misstep on this one is the inclusion of the SEVENTEEN minute Curtain Call. Yes, that's right, all SEVENTEEN minutes worth of it. There is a single version available that clocks in at just over 4 minutes, but YOU get the entire SEVENTEEN minutes in all its glory. Not sure why this was done, as you could easily fit another 3 songs in if it weren't for including the 17 minute Curtain Call (which was always an unsuitably strange choice to begin with.

Yeh I know this may leave out the odd classic or two but it does include the usaul, new rose, neat neat, neat, love song, smash it up etc. Guess for me I am just a sucker for anything I can find of the Damned and this is a pretty good comp of their work.

The packaging is good (CDs come in a jewel case) and the sound quailty of both CDs are exellent.

2 CDs and for anyone wanting a good overview of the Damned's history this would probably be the best place to start.

This is a great CD, as it picks some of the best songs from all their albums over the years (Damned Damned Damned, Music for Pleasure, The Black Album, Machine Gun Etiquette, Strawberries, Phantasmagoria). The first CD is their earlier stuff, with stuff like New Rose and Problem Child, while the second CD has some of their later songs like Eloise (some Damned fans may hate it, but I love it!) and Grimly Fiendish. Someone else who reviewed this CD said that they hated the fact that they put all seventeen minutes of Curtain Call. The reason for all seventeen minutes is that it's a psycadelic masterpiece, and I love the song so much I want it played at my funeral, which hopefully won't be for a long time!

While Smash It Up: The Anthology 1976-1987 is a very good CD, with classics such as Curtain Call and the fantastic Eloise, a few very good songs are missing, such as (to name a few): Disco Man, Nasty, Stranger on the Town and Shadow of love. Despite that, it is a very good album, and well worth buying for any Damned fan.
