36 Songs, 2 Hours 16 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

An exhaustive chronicle of indie’s all-conquering outcasts, this greatest hits compilation makes an extended case for Brian Molko’s punky Britpoppers. And while 36 songs may seem a lot, each slice of tuneful weirdness earns its place. “Nancy Boy” still carries the scratchy, snotty spirit of their peak period, “Without You” (featuring card-carrying Placebo devotee David Bowie) is a gloriously dark alt-duet, and new single “Jesus’ Son” proves that—20 years in—they’ve still got it.
