Once and for Always/News Is Out

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
This disc was released simultaneously with The Original Band, and, like its counterpart, it combines the contents of two Quicksilver albums from the early '80s. If this one is the less-consistently satisfying of the two compilations, it's probably due in part to the stress of a constantly changing lineup -- bassist and singer Lou Reid had left by the time Once & for Always was recorded, and by the following album the entire band was different with the exception of Lawson.

This one's worth owning, but if you have to choose between it and The Original Band, the latter's your best bet.
