Greatest Ever! Punk & New Wave: The Definitive Collection [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
The ambitiously titled Greatest Ever! Punk & New Wave: The Definitive Collection features 37 tracks that span three discs. Obvious hyperbole aside, this budget-priced box set has some real gems from the likes of the Damned ("Neat Neat Neat"), Adam and the Ants ("Kings of the Wild Frontier"), the Specials ("Ghost Town"), Dead Kennedys ("Holiday in Cambodia") and more, but it would take at least ten more discs to truly warrant such an absolute moniker.
