Cream Of The Crap Ė The Hellacopters (Sweden)


Label:Universal Records
Released:2002
Highlights:Thanks For Nothing
Crimson Ballroom
Makes It Alright
Heart Of The Matter
Down Right Blue
Rating:7/10


This is the first long awaited compilation (in a series of two) of rare, singles-only tracks by Swedish rock band The Hellacopters. The band were almost forced to release this comp due to the high prices people were charging for the bandís early 7Ē singles, which have until now been unavailable on CD. As a result, Cream Of The Crap is a good but uneven listen. Whilst it is essentially a fans-only release, there are still more than enough good songs to justify its purchase, such as the Scott Morgan collaboration Down Right Blue. Itís also interesting for fans like myself to be finally able to hear their earliest recordings and note that evolution the band has gone through over the years.
