McCarthy - That's All Very Well, But LP 1996

I bought this to at least partially replace my vinyl McCathy albums which had become scratched and scuffed after many years of happy listening. It's an odd collection combining singles, rarities and peel session tracks and it's hard to see which audience it was aimed at. It's sad to say but many of the songs featured sound a little tired, dated and the lack of production doesn't help matters either. On the plus side the compilation does showcase a great band, some excellent political pop songs and is worth buying for 'Should the bible be banned' if nothing else. If you want to experience McCarthy at their peak however, purchase 'Banking Violence and the Inner Life' and 'I am a Wallet' instead.
