While The Angels never reached the commercial heights of AC/DC or the Oils, this compilation shows why they’re the quintessential Aussie pub rock band.

The songs here – including Dogs Are Talking, Marseilles, and Am I Ever Going To See Your Face Again? – constitute a must-have for any hard rock aficionado, with The Angels looming so large in the genre that Guns N’ Roses, Pearl Jam and Nirvana have acknowledged their influence.

Although a shadow has been cast by the band’s factional warfare, and the illnesses of Doc Neeson and the late Chris Bailey, one thing remains the same – the songs still drive as hard as ever. (PH)
