The Best of the Alarm

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Best of the Alarm is a generous collection, containing all of the Alarm's standards plus several solo cuts from their leader, Mike Peters. All of the group's hits and best album tracks are here, making this an excellent choice for either the curious or the casual fan. A reissue of a collection originally released in 1998, The Best of the Alarm added two new singles -- "45 R.P.M." and "Superchannel" -- that weren't on the original program.
