Album Review

At the time of its 2001 release, Aberrations: 1981-1984 evened the score between Shriekback's full-length studio albums and their compilations, at seven. An underwear-drawer compilation of outtakes, B-sides, demos, and live material, the disc was certainly put together with the die-hard fan in mind. Therefore, the varied sound quality and varied overall quality of the songs themselves will appeal only to those with voracious appetites for Shriekback. As far as archival releases are considered, it doesn't fair too poorly at all. A limited-edition version of the compilation came with copies of 2000's Naked Apes & Pond Life.


Formed: 1982 in London, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s
