02 “Do You”
03 “Don’t You Evah”
04 “Inside Out”
05 “The Way We Get By”
06 “The Underdog”
07 “Hot Thoughts”
08 “I Summon You”
09 “Rent I Pay”
10 “You Got Yr Cherry Bomb”
11 “Got Nuffin”

13 “No Bullets Spent”

 

 

Lead singer Britt Daniels explained the concept behind the album  -

 

The idea of doing a best-of came to us a couple times. First I wasn’t sure how I felt about it but at some point I remembered that when I got my first Cure record it was Standing On A Beach. When I got my first New Order record, it was Substance. That was how I met those bands, and I moved backwards from there but I still listen to those comps. I love a greatest hits LP when it’s done well. It can be a thing unto itself.
