Standards was the first sort of "Best of" from The Alarm and was released in 1990.

Throw in some hit singles, a couple of album tracks, a "Classic Christmas" cover version and a reworking of the debut single and you have a 15 track smash hit...well I guess that was plan by I.R.S. Records!

In April the following year they released what turned out to be the final album (at least with the original line-up) - Raw and by the end of June they were no more!
