Along with visionary signings such as the Sex Pistols their track, "Pretty Vacant," is not as scary as when it came out, but just as good, Phil Collins, Lenny Kravitz, and such hip late-'90s acts as Cracker and Massive Attack, Virgin Records has continued to stay one step ahead of the game, and this collection shows you where it all began, as well as where it's going. The line "build it and they will come" comes close to summing up, but it's more accurate to say "shock them and they will buy." Bravo.
