Twenty five years of hits on a rather pointless CD compilation, saved only by the utterly brilliant bonus DVD that acts as an accompaniment.
Out with the history lessons, back with a more personal and intimate approach. And all the better for it. The new album from I Like Trains.
“A soul group with a brass section, and all looking good”. On its 30th anniversary, one of the greatest debuts of all time gets a well deserved re-release.

A curiously bile filled book, pouring scorn on the entire career of Sting, Summers and Copeland. If you are a fan of The Police, then you will not find much here to like.
Any disappointment that this is no sequel to Raising Sand disappears in a second, as the wonderful new album from Robert Plant is a delight in every way.
An excellent and challenging two CD compilation from the undefinable Art of Noise, for the first time comprising both the ZTT years and their time on China Records – with many songs having never seen the light of day before.
