When I first found out that this compilation existed, it caught me off guard. Fastball had only released 3 studio albums prior to this collection and in my mind it was too soon for this album to exist (note that the record company and Fastball had already parted ways when this record was released so it's safe to say that this was released for "economic" issues only). When I read the tracklisting the obvious song titles were present, with one unreleased song (Black Rain) and one B-side (Emotional) added to the mix. Owning all of this material on the original studio albums, I passed on this collection but I can still vouche for this release since I'm familiar with all of the songs and it's worth any price you pay for it. Fastball is truly an underrated band that if you care to listen to this disc you too will appreciate this Austin, TX group just like all of the fans they've picked up over the years. Highlights are (all of the songs are highlights, I mean this a "Best Of" package!) "Are You Ready For The Fallout?, "Slow Drag", "Sooner Or Later", "The Way", "Out Of My Head" & "Fire Escape". PLEASE BUY THIS RECORD!

I seldom write music reviews for Amazon but this album has had me humming all day. I can't say enough about how the well-crafted pop songs are catchy and intelligent. This album ranks up there with Squeeze's "Singles - 45's and Under" and Gin Blossoms "New Miserable Experience" in terms of almost every song being solid. Will definitely get played over and over in my house.

It's puzzling why Fastball are not better known or more popular. They write catchy rock songs packed with hooks and crunchy guitar riffs; pretty much in the vein of what the Gin Blossoms were doing in the 1990s. This compilation is good, but I agree with the other reviewers who thought the selection of songs could have been better. But at least the label hasn't skimped on minutes; you still get a lot of good music on this single disc collection. If nothing else, it's a fine way to discover an excellent and underrated band.

I can't believe that over 10 has passed since their first album and they're still writing killer songs. I put their stuff on my MP3 and just play all albums together. It's all good. There are few bands that have ever had this level of quality.

different and good music well played and highly underrated inventive band. The Way is an all time timeless classic but the others are good too.
