If you are just a casual Toad fan, buy this CD.

Listening to this album, I can't figure out how Toad ever gets out of my CD rotation for more than a day.

What I really like about this band is that their songs sound so good on the radio.

You may not have ever heard of Toad the Wet Sprocket in your life, but I guarantee you that if you listen to the radio regularly, you will have heard at least one (and likely more) of their songs before. "Walk on the Ocean", "All I Want", and "Good Intentions" (which has been aired on the show 'Friends') are just a few of the songs you may have heard on the radio without knowing the band who made them possible. What this CD does is combine all the hits, so people can get all the songs they've heard without having to shell out loads of money on all the albums. This CD is for the masses--the ones who didn't want to buy any past albums just for one catchy song or two. TTWS is a great band and this is a great starting point for casual fans. All the hits are here...so it's well worth the investment.

P.S. is not suppose to be Toad's greatest hits album.(thus according to Toad the Wet Sprocket). It's suppose to be Toad's favorite songs, hence the title "A retrospective". I am not a hard core fan by any means. I only have one other Toad CD, "Acoustic Dance Party"(Which I highly recommend). There are really good songs on here, one of which I might have heard before, but I'm not sure...anyway now it is my new favorite toad song. It's "Crazy Life". This cd also has the staples of toad, "come down", "all I want", "something's always wrong", "walk on the ocean", and "fall down". One of the songs that was previously unrealeased "Silo lullaby" is another great song, especially before bed time. Overall this is an exceptional cd. I would highly recommend it. It's too bad that toad is no longer together to bring out more great music! Buy this cd, you won't be disappointed.

This album is essentially Toad's greatest hits, but the simple fact is that most music listeners have never heard most of these songs. This fact is a tragedy in my opinion, for they truly missed one of the most musically sincere bands of our time. For fans this CD is truly a farewell and a thank you. For non-fans this CD would make a fine introduction to Toad, as it captures and blends together the moods and emotions of their unique (often mis-labeled) sound. I also covers a vast expanse of their 12-year career, from Way Away (off their first independently produced album Bread and Circus) to Whatever I Fear and Come Down (from their final effort Coil). It is probably a stretch to say that this album is essential to all Toad fans, as they already have these songs on their previous CDs, with the exception of two unreleased tracks (neither of which are highlights of this album). However, it is a beautiful album to have in one's CD collection. I say buy it anyway!

Toad the Wet Sprocket is one of the few bands that can be dubbed "lyrical genius," and this CD brings that out. "P.S." is a wonderful opening song, and it's only the beginning. The album goes on to show other interesting works such as "Fall Down," "Crazy Life," and my personal favorite, "Whatever I Fear." There are a few duds, though, like "Jam" and "Way Away," but they hardly ruin the album. And then there are the weird tracks, "Hold Her Down" and "Silo Lullaby." I like the music in "Hold Her Down," but the lyrics are just too strange. "Silo Lullaby" honestly scares me ("Goodnight, sleep well, I'll see you with the rest of them in Hell...").
Anyway, "P.S. (A Toad Retrospective)" is a wonderful album all-around. If you are a newcomer to Toad, this is the best place to start. After you listen to this album, hopefully your curiosity in them will be aroused enough to get you to buy the rest.

This latest release, and sadly their last, reminds me of why I have always enjoyed Toad, superb songwriting, wonderful lyrics and great production. I particularly enjoy the previously unreleased track "Eyes Open Wide". Toad fan or not, anyone who spend the 90's enjoyng the new direction of rock should have this albumn in their collection. And any serious Toad fan's collection is not complete without it.

I'm only sorry that I really didn't become a "fan" until Coil. I enjoyed everyone's posts here. These guys were (are) simply (a ton) better than the public consumption of music wanted. It's a fricking joke. I know not a thing about the physical act of making music, but think I'm pretty deft at what's good and not. However, I do have more than a thing for lyrics, and find that, at least for me, the most integral part of any song. Not taking away from the other members, bet Glen Phillips is the standout. I hate when the word genius gets thrown around willy-nilly, but there is no doubt in my mind that this man is a musical GENIUS-that nobody knows about! Unbelievable. I know a lot of Toad and Glen fans have different tastes, so we're not all going to like the exact same thing. That's fine. In my humble opinion, anyone who can tell me something I've already been through, or felt, or wanted, in a different way so as to bring up an emotion or thought is doing something well. My high water marks are Sting and Bruce Springsteen, and...Glen. He is that good. Honestly, between Toad and the only Glen solo, I have never seen such a beautiful blend of melancholy and despair with the brightest hope of a new day. Any chance these guys may get back together?
