Reseña de álbum

Released in England in 1992, and reissued straight-up nearly a decade later in America, the 20-track collection Greatest Hits is a very good collection that captures Squeeze at their best, even if it doesn't contain all of their best moments. This contains pretty much everything on the 1982 collection Singles: 45s and Under — every one but one of the 12 tracks, with the sublime "If I Didn't Love You" down for the count, but supplanted by the terrific "Labelled With Love," so it's a draw — and it brings it up to speed with selections from 1985's Cosi Fan Tutti Frutti to 1991's Play, with a total of eight tracks, including the big hit "Hourglass" and one of its successors, "Footprints" (but not "853-5937," yet there's still a good portion of Babylon and On here). This certainly provides a more generous selection of material, which is welcome, but the record doesn't summarize the group's great period as Singles: 45s and Under, nor is it quite as infectious. Still, it does have more tracks, and it covers the post 1982 period very well, so it does fulfill its goals very well, and, for listeners looking for a fuller collection, this may very well be the choice — especially since it contains almost all of Singles.

Good collection

It should be noted that this compilation extends only to 1989's Frank, and does not include any tracks off Squeeze's sublime 1991 release, Play, as the iTunes review states (these tracks chronicle the band's A&M years, and Play was released by Reprise). Regardless, it's a great batch of pop songs. The core of the album is identical to the British version of Singles - 45's and Under, and this is the best stuff (i.e. what garnered all the Lennon-McCartney comparisons). What follows can only disappoint if held to the same standards. "Last Time Forever" was as lackluster a comeback single as you could imagine, and the other two tracks from 1985's Cosi Fan Tutti Frutti are well written but have not aged well production-wise. "Hourglass" and "Footprints" are fun (the omission of the putrid "853-5937" is a blessing), but "Trust Me To Open My Mouth" is bland. The Frank tracks continue the trend: "If It's Love" is brilliant, and "Love Circles" is flat-out adult contemporary mediocrity. Not a great place to end on, especially when the next record was the best thing Squeeze had done since East Side Story, but there you go.

Top of the Pops

The highest form of pop/altermative music, from creative songwriting to precise execution, is on display here. Squeeze had it all and despite their early hits, what jumps out for me from this collection is King George Street, from perhaps their most underrated album, 1985's Cosi Fan Tutti Frutti (wish Break My Heart was on here!) Tillbrook was always willing to bend simple melodies and Difford wrote lyrics as if he were a novelist -- drenching in details and little ironies. And Holland is one of pop's great pianists! It's great, timeless music.

Classic lyrics. Classic hooks. Classic songs.

Squeeze should have been as popular as the Beatles. As famous respected as The Kinks. As rich as the Rolling Stones. Instead, we must rest comfortable in the knowledge that they remain one of the truly great pop bands of all time. Download this now.

As one of the most traditional pop bands of the new wave, Squeeze provided one of the links between classic British guitar pop and post-punk. Inspired heavily by the Beatles and the Kinks, Squeeze was the vehicle for the songwriting of Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, who were hailed as the heirs to Lennon and McCartney's throne during their heyday in the early '80s. Unlike Lennon and McCartney, the partnership between Difford and Tilbrook was a genuine collaboration, with the former writing the...
