4.0 out of 5 stars About as good as it could be. September 12, 2005
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
There are some who would call their self-titled album their "best of", and while it is a great album, this is a good collection too. The first five tracks here are from that album, and are well chosen. Then a couple from "Hallowed Ground", and a couple from "Blind Leading The Naked". From "3" we get only "Nightmares". I personally love that album and still think it's underrated. Toss on "American Music", "Color Me Once" from "The Crow" soundtrack, and a few more of their later songs and this is a fine overview of the Violent Femmes career. If this also included "Prove My Love" and "World We're Living In" I'd have no complaints. Still, this is most of the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hidden Track Alone Makes it Worthwhile December 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Personally I would have swapped "Out the Window" for "Black Girls," but the choices were acceptable. The disc contain two live acoustic numbers that are quite good, especially the hidden track (track #20). Great band that makes it hard to narrow down a "greatest hits" album down to one CD.

Ok, a two disc set is really what is in order for this band. I know many feel all you need is the first disc and I disagree. Yes, I remember back in the late 80's being introduced to this band (first album) by a buddies house drinking tom collins' on a warm summer day. First album has a place in my heart like it does for everyone else. The second album by this band is great, just different from the first which is why it was not given the acclaim. Then go through their other albums and as this cd shows they have many very good to great songs. Color me once really is once of the best songs they have ever made in my opinion and that was made a decade after their first album.

If you don't get a copy of this album you may have just f%$#ed up! All the usual suspects plus a bonus track or two. It's the Femmes, how can you go wrong?
