Album Review

Singles 2001-2005 focuses on the Scottish punk-pop outfit's tenure with Beggar's Banquet, highlighting tracks from the band's first three albums Blackened Sky, The Vertigo of Bliss, and Infinity Land. Released to capitalize on the success of 2006's Puzzle, the band's first release for 14th Floor (an offshoot of Warner Bros.), Singles serves as decent primer for new listeners but a frustrating one for longtime fans, many of whom consider Biffy Clyro to be an album band (at least up until Puzzle). That said, as far as gateway drugs go, Singles provides a decent enough high to facilitate a return trip, especially on the strength of high-energy emo/power pop/prog gems like "27," "57," and "The Ideal Height."

Customer Reviews

Don't do it

As other reviewers have said, Biffy are now with a new label but the old label were still contracted to do another Biffy album. So instead of releasing a B-sides compilation as the band requested, they went and cashed in with a singles catalogue. The band aren't even promoting this, so don't fall into the trap either. Buy their albums, every song on here may be 5-star quality, but the way beggars banquet are milking their former band isn't.

Just don't

If you want to get into Biffy's old stuff buy the albums not this cash in on Biffy's success. The songs themselves deserve more than five stars as they're all mind blowing tracks that are so much etter than the songs on Puzzle. If you want to be a true Biffy fan, buy the albums not this.

Great Songs, Shame about the Cash in

The guy above who claims only two songs on this album are good hasn't got a clue and has clearly jumped on the "Puzzle" bandwagon, as have Beggar's Banquet, by releasing this cash-in album. Don't buy it! Start at the beginning with Blackened Sky, then you'll see why old school Biffy fans have different opinions to the people who think they are a "new band" and "puzzle" is their debut. You cant judge Biffy Clyro on their singles, there are loads of cracking tunes missing here like "Some Kind of Wizard", Christopher's River" and "Scary Mary"- Get the albums!
