I’ll start with;

Kraftwerk. The Mix.
Pet Shop Boys. Discography.
New Order. Substance.
The Smiths. Best I & Best II


#2

i’d have to say The Best Of The Beatles


#3

Came in here to post this. Will leave now.


#4

Super Furry Animals Songbook
Depeche Mode The Singles 82>85/86>98
The Cure Standing On A Beach
The Fall 458489 A sides


#5

Buzzcocks Singles Going Steady
Al Green Greatest Hits


#6

Immaculate collection ffs.


#7

Minor Threat - Complete Discography is the only must have compilation.

Maybe a Roy Orbison one. I would never understand why bother with a kraftwerk one because all their albums post Autobahn are 9 out of 10 albums and well worth having in full


#8

The Kinks Ultimate Collection

44 bangers right there


#9

Changesonebowie


#10

Girls Aloud - Ten
Ash - Intergalactic Sonic 7"s
The Beach Boys - 20 Golden Greats
Abba - Gold
The B-52s - Songs For A Future Generation
Simon & Garfunkel - Greatest Hits

These are the ones I have in my car.

Bob Marley & the Wailers - Legend. Gets a bad press these days, but it does what it says on the tin…


#12

Also…there hasn’t been a Kraftwerk compilation proper…The Mix is comprised of sometimes inferior remixed versions of the original tracks.

It’s not good.


#13

“Best of the Beatles” is tired as fuck. Shimmetry knows his stuff but I despise Best Of’s. This means nothing to me, ahhh Vienna.

On a side note. Minor Threat as a complete discography kinda works and is almost unique as it fits the CD length. But in full. Greatest Hits - Stay Away and go with the actual albums / singles / EP’s…

Mcluskyism


#15

Well at least that makes more sense. Just listning to it now. What have they done with Radioactivity. It sounds like a Depeche Mode song!


#16

I absolutely love ‘The Mix’. Definitely not a patch on the albums proper but I have a soft spot for it for sentimental reasons.


#17

Well I think its great that they did something different.


#18

obviously.


#19

The Mix is bloody ace. Don’t get its bad reputation. The version of The Robots is brilliant.


#20

In other Kraftwerk news, they’ve announced a UK tour next year.
