An Accidental Collocation of Atoms? The Best of Extreme

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
To some listeners, An Accidental Collocation of Atoms? may not seem necessary, since Extreme's two hits were already on one album, yet for casual fans who don't have Pornograffitti, or want highlights from the other records, this is a strong, representative collection.
