OX4 -- The Best Of (The First Time) Nothing here you haven't swooned over before; OX4 -- The Best Of is the same as last year's Ignition import, which was incorporated into the 3-CD Ride box set. Not that the swarming guitars and soaring vocals of these reverb-infested Nineties UK princes are any less intoxicating. The bonus disc flits three jangly demos and an outtake, all of which the booklet fails to denote. Nevertheless, for first-wavers and worshippers alike, OX4 is a blast.
