9/10 Jack Customer review, 22nd June 2016

One of the great unheard post-punk/new wave bands from the late seventies. This is a compilation of all the Manicured Noise recordings from that period and Caroline True Records did a great job with the mastering. I think Manicured Noise were just as good as many of the bands that made it big from the period. The music is dark, yet the energy is high and very infectious. A brilliant sort of uniqueness emerges once you have become familiar with these recordings, and you realise that there just wasn't another band quite like them.
