It's Been Too Long... The Greatest Hits and More

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
It's Been Too Long...The Greatest Hits and More features 22 (amiable to the point of disturbing) cuts from the Australian collective who just wanted to "teach the world to sing" (or buy them a Coke).
