"Each album has its own charms and it's fun to track the band's changes over the few years the set covers. The singles collections are highlighted by their timeless classic "He's Frank," but the rest undeniably ranks with the best sophisticated pop of the time. It's great that Tapete reissued all this wonderful material." (AllMusic)

"Their determined reinvention makes them a band worth exploring and this treasure chest, the begin and end of a wickedly fun journey." (New Noise Magazine)

"Non-stop colourful pop excellence... Turn on and tune in." (Classic Rock)

"Emerging at the end of punk era, The Monochrome Set's estrangement from society came from a more arty angle. This boxset is the full account of their frantically productive early period, the perfect document of an under-appreciated chapter of British pop history. Though widely unknown, they are one of the most influential British bands of the last 40 years, with the early Morrissey and Marr, Blur's Graham Coxon, and Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos among their admirers." (Forced Exposure)
