From Dankel
A lot of the Buzzcocks best stuff was their singles, so this compilation is essential

From Kuzh69
The best compilation album, along with New Order(substance) made.....
An essential, because nearly every song was never recorded on any
Studio album. Overall I dislike greatest hits albums, unless you like a
Handful of songs from the particular artist.
This album is a big exception to that rule. Early, influential punk, classic alt.
At its finest.

Yes, you can say this is a compilation, but I consider it their best album as a majority of their singles never landed on a proper album. Great, tuneful punk rock with a lick of attitude.

From Mozart
Really great compilations tend to not get the respeck(!) they deserve on this forum, but sometimes bands just don't do the "album as work in itself" thing. Some bands are best appreciated with compilations. This compilations portrays a cogent aesthetic and relentless energy. Fantastic!

If I did include compilations on my chart this would be the first in. Life-affirming stuff.

For my money the best greatest hits compilation ever assembled. The track order flows so well and it feels like everything was released all at once. Not a bad song among the bunch, just one hit after another. Orgasm Addict, Ever Fallen in Love..., Promises, Harmony in My Head, and Autonomy are some of the best punk tracks I've heard.

A pretty great collection of instantly memorable songs. Angry....and at the same time so fun and catchy many of the songs could classify as pop.
