THIS is an updated version of the 1994 boxset which brought together the Men In Black’s first six albums, and added relevant non-album singles and B-sides.

The original ‘long box’ contained four discs, and now there’s a fifth, comprising the Rarities album and a handful of inessential odds and ends.

Songs such as Peaches, Walk On By, 5 Minutes, Duchess, Something Better Change and Golden Brown shouldn’t need any introduction.

If you don’t have the early Stranglers albums, it’s a worthwhile purchase; if you do, there’s no point. 7/10 GW
