Cracker holds an honor as one of the most divisive bands in the history of alternative rock. While many enjoy their slightly Southern-fried rock, others think that frontman David Lowery lowered the bar after leaving the quirky Camper Van Beethoven. Garage d'Or, the two-CD retrospective of Cracker's greatest hits, outtakes, and songs that appeared on soundtracks and compilations, won't change many people's minds. Disc 1 is the stronger of the two; aside from the insipid "Get Off This," Lowery's now famous hooks ("Teen Angst," "Euro-Trash Girl," "Low") can claw into the heads of even the most jaded listener. Plus, once overlooked tracks, especially the gospel-tinged "I See the Light," get a second wind. Unfortunately, disc 2 is mostly filler. Covers of "You Ain't Going Nowhere" and "Rainy Days and Mondays" are ill-chosen and poorly executed. A live "Mr. Wrong" and "China" are the disc's saving graces. --Jason Josephes

Usually when a band gets around to releasing a greatest hits compilation, the time has come for long-time fans to mourn about the passing "golden age" (Cracker-specific pun) of their musical height, and expectation for the bandmates to spend the rest of their limelight careers rehashing old glories. Thankfully, such will not be the case with Cracker, as David Lowrey has assured us that they are not breaking up, just releasing a retrospective after the first marvelous decade of "Cracker Soul." Which is a very good thing, as I think that David Lowrey and Co.'s Camper Van Beethoven and descendant Cracker has been the best thing to happen to Rock music in the post-punk landscape. "Garaged d'Or " is a serviceable introduction for the uninitiated to the unique eclecticism of Cracker's country/blues/grunge post-alt rock hybrid career, that never loses its edge of irreverent cynicism. Cracker pundits (all 10 of us per 1 million citizens) may bicker over the selection of hits on the album, I tend to agree with Amazon.com that "Get Off This" never deserved to be a hit, and "Shake Some Action" doesn't make much of an impact, probably because David Lowrey isn't the main singer on it, but for the most part you can't argue with what's available, and for Cracker completists the addition of three new tracks makes "Garaged d'Or" worthwhile. "Be My Love" and "Eyes of Mary" play like enjoyably low-key additions from "Out Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart," and "Heaven Knows I'm Lonely Know" is worthy country-drawl material ala the latter half of "Gentleman's Blues.Read more ›

Cracker's new retrospective CD is an excellent collection of some of Cracker's more commercially popular songs and the songs popular with hard-core cracker fans. The bonus CD contains some great rareties that are difficult, if not impossible, to come by any other way. I absolutely love their new songs "Be My Love," and "Heaven Knows I'm Lonely." This is a great CD to give to introduce someone to Cracker for the first time and be able to communicate the breadth of their style, but it's also great for long-time fans to have so much in one place.

The inclusion of three previously unreleased tracks make this worth the purchase alone, not counting the bonus disc of live cuts and rarities. While some here at Amazon.com have complained about song selection (no "I Hate My Generation", the inclusion of "Get Off This"), I feel this is like nitpicking (I would make the case for inclusion of "Dr. Bernice", "Movie Star", or "Another Song About the Rain", but I digress). Most of their well known hit songs are here, as well as some fan favorites.
A great overview of a great band, and not just an inclusion of your standard "radio hits".

This is a excellent collection of songs from this So. Cal. duo David Lowery and Johnny Hickman. The hits package only misses "I hate my generation", but you can get that on the "The Golden Age". The theee new songs "Be My Love", "Heaven Knows I'm Lonely Now" and "Eyes Of Mary" maybe show's a kind of new direction on there next cd, these are great additions to the Cracker catalog. Disc 2 was my favorite part of the collection. It open's up with the surf sounds of "Surfbilly" recorded originally for the Johnnie Walker Saturday Show on B.B.C. Radio 1. "the Golden Age" live sounds better than the studio track. The Dylan Classic "You Ain't Going Nowhere", sounds great here, I think people will like this version. "Hollywood Cemetary" an outake from the Gentleman's Blues'. "Whole Lotta Trouble" from the Empire Records Soundtrack, good rocking. The live "I Want Out Of The Circus" my 2 young girls love this song especially the circus intro. "Steve's Hornpipe" is just plain fun. "Mr. Wrong" live true Cracker at thier Countryfied best. "Sunday Train" personally one of my favorites. This song is an outtake from "Kerosene Hat". The Rock-a billy "Lonesome Johnny Blues" live Johnny Hickman at the top of his game. "Rainy Days and Mondays" the Carpenter's song, done very nicely here. And the disc closes with a demo song from the 1st Cracker Cd, "China". At this price you get 28 Cracker classic's go for it you won't be disappointed!

Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
As one who has Cracker's first 4 studio albums, I purchased this double CD for the 3 new songs and 1 movie soundtrack song on the first CD and the unreleased 12 tracks on the second CD. Out of the 16 tracks I really liked only 4 of them, "Be My Love', 'The Golden Age (Live)', 'Mr.. Wrong (Live)' and 'You Ain't Going Nowhere (Live - Adam Duritz on lead vocals)'. It may be worth purchasing if you can get it at reasonable price or are a Cracker completist.
