Not worth the extra money
on April 16, 2001
The original of this album is a classic, of course. But the new material not only doesn't improve it--it actually makes the record worse. There are seven new "songs" on this, but five of them are really electronic noodlngs that weren't good enough to be put out. They're quite boring, actually, and represent a marked letdown from the quality of the album's original tracks.
The two remix tracks are nothing special, though the version of Shout is kinda fun. So if you already have Songs from the Big Chair, no need to buy this...
