2006 collection by this Britpop band heavily influenced by The Smiths and Morrissey. Born from the ashes of the early '90s band Spin, Gene recruited vocalist Martin Rossiter and proceeded to release 10 UK Top 40 singles and a clutch of great albums. 18 tracks including 'Be My Light Be My Guide', 'Sleep Well Tonight', 'For The Dead', 'Sick Sober And Sorry' and more. Their first two - admittedly rather fine - singles, "For The Dead" and "Be My Light, Be My Guide", spotlight Steve Mason's jangling Marr-esque arpeggio guitar and the Rozza's Morrissey-like phrasing and Wildean way with a witty epithet. However, they gradually moulded their own distinctive oeuvre, majoring in elegantly attired urban vignettes such as "New Amusements", lifted from their 1996 album Drawn To The Deep End. This is a great introduction to one of the most underrated British bands of the 1990s. One listen to this excellent compilation will convince you that rather than the meat-and-potatoes Smiths copyists the music press made them out to be, Gene really were something very special.
