The Best of Simple Minds The Best of Simple Minds

Simple Minds are another band from my youth. Every song from their other “Best of”, Glittering Prize, recalls memories of me walking through post-Thatcher Sheffield on my way to University lectures.

Thing is, after 1995 I appear to have lost all taste for them. Don’t get me wrong, I do like Simple Minds, I just don’t like them in the same way I did in the 1990s perhaps it is purely because my tastes have matured. Or perhaps Scottish rock music was blown away by Belle & Sebastian. I can’t put my finger on it. Still, this is ok as far as “Best of”s go. I still hold Glittering Prize in higher regard but most of the songs on there appear here too. The additional songs are a bit “meh”.
