  • All Music Guide's Dave Thompson said of Punk Singles "This 21-track roundup showcases every A-side, B-side, and EP track released by the Essex growlers, beginning with the two cuts that debuted them (alongside Dead Man's Shadow) on the Heathrow Touchdown EP in November of 1981. From there, the CD swings into the foreboding roar of "Suicide Bag" (and its chilling B-side, a tribute to hometown Stanwell) and on through the indie hits "London Bouncers," "Question of Choice," and "Yet Another Dole Queue Song," before bidding farewell with the band's final 45, "Cocktail Credibility." In between times, their takes on "Rockaway Beach" and Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll, Pt. 2" pinpoint the musical influences that fired not only !Action Pact! but the U.K. ... movement in its entirety... there's ... a fury to the commitment that renders this collection an essential acquisition".
  • All Music Guide's Greg Prato said of Live Style "Never having any problem capturing the no-holds-barred fury of their wild live gigs in the recording studio, G.B.H.'s studio albums are already quite live-sounding affairs. So unlike most rock bands that release live albums in hopes of livening up their sound further, G.B.H. have pretty much already "been there, done that." ...evidenced by its ...release, ...Live Style, the band has no problem replicating its trademark wall of noise on-stage—the intensity remains the same. Recorded in November 1988, the band thrashes out ...punk classics..., as well as such latter-day tracks as "Transylvanian Perfume." As evidenced by..Live Style, G.B.H. ...undoubtedly one of the great live punk acts..."
  • All Music Guide's Jason Ankeny said of The Punk, The Bad, & The Ugly "The 24-track set Punk Bad and Ugly collects rare material from both old school and new school punk rockers".
