Suprisingly better than Greatest Hits? What are you on crack? NOTHING from 90s up to today is better than the 70s albums. Nothing. One can like it, i know i do, but to say it is better is to have faulty ears or no taste. Permanent Vacation and Pump were the last time this band was anywhere close to their greatness. Gems and Greatest Hits (or Pandora's Box for that matter) blow Big Ones (and Young Lust and Oh Yeah and Devil's Got A New Disguise and etc...) out of the water.
