A "Best of" depends on anyone's opinion, especially if there were no hits in a commercial manner, to judge the "Best" by. Crass manage to make a representative selection throughout their work of almost a decade, covering both their raw power and their more sophisticated songwriting, while they proove their uniqueness from the very beginning to the last gig. This compilation presents the whole of Crass and is to be enjoyed by beginners as well as by those who know all their albums.
