Over the course of Squeeze 's year Squeeze - The Best Of Squeezean inexplicable number of greatest-hits compilations have surfaced seven, to be specificand nearly all of them have suffered from a serious flaw, whether it's the exclusion of important hit singles or the inclusion of mediocre album cuts and B-sides.
Big Squeeze is the attempt to remedy this mess, as it is the first hits compilation that covers the band from toincluding most of the important singles along the way, as well as tacking on a bonus disc of B-sides.
Granted, Squeeze released some great singles -- enough to Squeeze - The Best Of Squeeze a straight-up two-disc singles compilation, really -- but for a casual fan, this is truly the best introduction. The band has a treasure trove of nearly non-album cuts available, so it's surprising that Big Squeeze wastes space on throwaways like "Suites from Five Strangers" and "Squabs on Forty Fab," but most of the rest of the tracks live up to the high standard of the band's singles and album cuts.
There is also an insightful track-by-track commentary written by both Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Diffordalthough it's poorly organized and inexplicably fails to identify who is speaking in each part of the liner notes.
