Overview

It might not boast the all-encompassing nature of 1994's The Singles 1982-1987, and it might not be as succinct and flawlessly selected as the same year's Generation: The Best Of, but The Very Best of Red Lorry Yellow Lorry improves upon all of the previous compilations by acknowledging 1988's Nothing Wrong and 1989's Blow, the two records the band made for RCA after making the jump from Red Rhino. Since the running order is chronological, it shows that the band indeed made subtle developments with their sound, much to the chagrin of those who felt that RLYL were sludge merchants -- nothing but Joy Division cloning, guttural howling, murky machine rhythms, and disturbingly acid-drenched guitars. No, they were much more than that, far more exciting than that description; if justice existed, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry's catalog would be just as known as Killing Joke's, not only recognized for having some wild guitar playing on par with Killing Joke's records (which are also comparable to Keith Levene's playing on PIL's debut), but also for putting an often terrific, unique spin on doom and gloom that should all but separate them from the remainder of the goth rock sect.
