JAMES: THE BEST OF is an excellent sampling of the late output of the band that was almost too happy for Manchester. Culled mostly from James's albums from the 1990s, the 18 songs here include the smash hit "Laid", and several other UK hits that were US sleepers, including "Come Home", "Sit Down", "She's a Star", and others. Sadly, JAMES: THE BEST OF provides only one example of the band's earlier work on Factory Records. Nevertheless, the compilation attests to the wonderful pop sensibility that characterised the James sound, as well as to the lyrical depth that helped the band develop the dedicated following that enabled its survival long after the Madchester scene had floundered. James's phenomenal staying power is well documented on JAMES: THE BEST OF

This is a great album from a top band, saw them at Preston a couple of months ago, voted hot!

Supermod

Will be meeting these guys in a few weeks. Good band.

Was probably ok in the 90's --- where it should stay!

duh!? blinkered view of music, guys.

bargain

Best album in my collection,imo.Bought originally,20 years ago,with bonus live cd,stil play this album regularly.Truly outstanding cd for any collection !!

Who cares whether they were US sleepers or not? What's that got to do with it. This is aimed at the yanks mostly it seems.

Great album, one of my favourite best of's. Far better than their later 'collection' album.
