Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than just a couple of Hit Songs This is a fantastic "Best Of" Album, demonstrating that Mental As Anything are one of the all-time great Aussie Bands. Frankly, my reason for buying this album was that I was a bit sick and tired of only ever hearing the same two to three Mental As Anything songs being played on a "classic rock" kind of radio station that we listen to at work. And they never seemed to play, "You're So Strong", one of the best songs ever made to sing along to! ...Change that,... to sing OUT LOUD to!!! :-) Thanks JB Hi-Fi Robert
