Hooligans takes a slightly different angle than previous compilations, concentrating on the group's '70s album rock heyday. Only three songs ("I Can't Explain," "I Can See for Miles, " "Pinball Wizard") from the '60s are included, with much of the album being devoted to radio hits and album tracks, with three of non-LP singles, "The Relay, " "Let's See Action" and "Join Together, " added for good measure. Those singles make Hooligans of interest to collectors, but the remainder of the record is for casual fans, since it contains such familiar items as "Summertime Blues, " "Baba O'Riley, " "Behind Blue Eyes, " "The Bargain, " "Sister Disco, " "Squeeze Box, " "5:15" and "Who Are You." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
