Fine Young Cannibal’s career was so short (only two albums) that this seems almost pointless. But The Finest is a well-selected survey that encompasses the hits (”Johnny Come Home,” ”She Drives Me Crazy”) and covers (Elvis’ ”Suspicious Minds”). Their sound — post-punk’s nervous rhythms combined with soulful arrangements and melodies — has held up well; three new songs neither augment nor diminish the band’s brief yet impressive legacy. B+
