Get the Message is a compilation album by the Johnny Marr/Bernard Sumner band Electronic, released in September 2006 (see 2006 in music). It is the first career-spanning collection of the band; a 1999 Japanese compilation was cancelled just before release.[4]


The album includes every A-side, two B-sides ("Imitation of Life" and "All That I Need") and four album tracks ("Out of My League", "Like No Other", "Prodigal Son" and "Twisted Tenderness"). It was compiled by Craig DeGraff and Electronic. New liner notes written by the band are also included.

A limited edition of the album includes a bonus DVD of all the band's music videos, except for "Late at Night" and the European version of "Getting Away with It" (the American film is featured).
