Essential Squeeze

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Released as a primer for the reissue of the Squeeze catalog, as well as a nifty tie-in to Difford and Tilbrook's reunion, Universal UK's 2007 compilation Essential Squeeze is a generous 20-track overview of the band's best work, spanning from their first single, "Take Me I'm Yours," to 1998's "Without You Here," adding the previously unreleased (and quite good) "Library Girl" and "Last Call for Good Measure."

Of course, there are plenty of good songs -- some singles, some not -- absent, but what is here is very good, helping to make Essential Squeeze a good introduction to the band, or a good one-stop for casual fans.
