Singles (1986)



Killing an Arab's hipster indifference followed by ~16 tracks about how much he feels. Yeah, it's silly, Smith's a cool guy less Meursault than sentimental new wave half-handsome ladies man and if he's a stranger he thinks you're an outsider too and he'll sing about yours and his feelings with some of the best hooks and deepest moods of the 80s and for all they stand for (Faith and Pornography) it's where they just aren't like that that a compilation such as this works. I wouldn't even call it a document like people seem to do because a) that's bullshit and b) it takes away from how well Staring at the Sea flows through 7 years of the band's material

A+
