An excellent compilation from The Cure. I had the tape of the exact CD back in 1986 and it was one of my first "best of" or "compilation" of a band. There is just something about The Cure. They have a good sound and some really good songs. I had this album as a teenager in the early 80s, on vinyl (Standing on a beach), and it still sounds fantastic.
