Album Review

20th Century Masters — The Millennium Collection: The Best of the Troggs is almost identical to the 1994 collection The Best of the Troggs released on Chronicles. This disc cuts two songs (the grungy "Gonna Make You" and the chugging "Surprise Surprise [I Need You]") and adds the ballad "Little Girl." The switch makes this collection inferior but it is still a fine place to get your hands on the best the Troggs have to offer. The set kicks off with the wild "Wild Thing" and jumps back and forth between the group's Neanderthal rave-ups like "From Home," "I Want You," "Give It to Me," and "I Can't Control Myself" and sensitive, almost pretty ballads like "Love Is All Around," "With a Girl Like You," and "You Can Cry if You Want." Like the other collection, this leaves off a few songs that would be nice to include, like "The Yella in Me," "Jingle Jangle," and "I Just Sing," but on the whole this set would be a fine introduction to the Troggs and quite possibly all you might ever need by the band as well.

Customer Reviews

The Best of The Troggs

From one of the sixties greats. Far from "only one good song". Actually The Troggs did it with uncanny consistancy. So many songs that so many people have YET to hear. One of the other amazing things about The Troggs is there severe talent at recycling riffs. Why do I love "I want you" and "From Home" so much? Because they're also other songs I love so much.

No, the Troggs Didn't "Rip Off" Their Biggest Hit

Someone should let Jordanx79 know that neither Jimi Hendrix or the Troggs did "Wild Thing" first -- Chip Taylor wrote the song. But the Troggs had the big hit with it in 1966, a year before Hendrix first performed the tune, so claiming the Troggs stole it from Jimi is a bit far-fetched. As for this collection, it's a good overview of the group's best-known tunes, but someone needs to put either Sire's THE VINTAGE YEARS or Polydor's ARCHEOLOGY back in print for an in-depth profie of a wildly underrated band. British Invasion era rock was rarely this gloriously crude!

Ripped off.

I don't really care for the band, they really are more of a one hit wonder. Also, that one hit that they have Wild Thing, was ripped off from the great guitarist Jimi Hendrix and it went above Hendrix's own work that they ripped off and made a bit more pop sounding for the time it was made. i mean i geuss some of their songs are alright.. but i really would recommend different bands from the decades such as The Who, Nirvana, etc.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Remembered chiefly as proto-punkers who reached the top of the charts with the "caveman rock" of "Wild Thing" (1966), the Troggs were also adept at crafting power pop and ballads. Hearkening back to a somewhat simpler, more basic British Invasion approach as psychedelia began to explode in the late '60s, the group also reached the Top Five with their flower-power ballad "Love Is All Around" in 1968. While more popular in their native England than the U.S., the band also fashioned memorable, insistently...
