One of the most under rated bands of all time. This is a great set. You get the first 3 lps plus tons of bonus tracks. This set is recommended both as an introduction to the Wipers or for the long time fan. Songs like "Over the Edge", "Youth of America", "Doom Town" and "Return of the Rat", american rock songwriting doesn't get better than this. Greg Sage's desperate yet haunting guitar playing is beyond words. Buy this now!!

Greg Sage and the Wipers make music that defies classification. Sure, the references here are definatly "punk" but calling The Wipers just a "punk rock" band is like calling Van Gogh just a "painter". I think Van Gogh is a pretty decent analogy for the incredible music Sage has made over his 20+ years in music. He has never compromised his intregity in anyway, and has gone through some pretty horrible "music-business" type experiences, but continues to remain focused on his prime directive. Many people compare him to Jimi Hendrix (blazing sonic fury, incredibly melodic guitar riffs), and that is not entirely incorrect. With this box set you get The Wipers first 3 albums, "Is This Real", "Youth Of America", and "Over The Edge" along with 23 bonus cuts!!!! With 6 never before released songs!!! Wow I can't recommend this highly enough. I have even seen some people comparing The Strokes to The Wipers, so for all the people that are going nuts for the new "flavor of the week", check out where it all came from.

Format: Audio CD
The Wipers were the band I always needed to hear. They were frequently dropped as influences by various artists during the nineties including Blur, Nirvana, My Vitriol and more. This box-set brings you three of their most popular and well-known albums and more rarities than you could ever wish for. The first album, Is This Real?, is an enlightening and inspiring collection of classic pop-punk songs. The energy of Return Of The Rat, the alienation of D7, the anger of Mystery, the melancholy of Don't Know Who I Am and the pop brilliance of Let's Go Away. You will never fall out of love with this album. Then there's Youth Of America. It's quite different than the previous album but equally compelling. It tends to be slightly more of a challenge to get into but once you're into it, it's well worth it. The most accesible song is Can This Be, a stunning punk rocker that has some of Sage's best riffing. The title track, a ten minute-plus epic, is strange and interesting and eventually get's the listener hooked on it's unforgettable main guitar riff and great chorus. No Fair is your typical Wipers song. Taking Too Long features piano, Pushing The Extreme is enjoyable and closer (excluding bonus tracks) When It's Over is a beatiful instrumental which is well worth the listeners attention. Last is Over The Edge (my personal favourite). This has a raw production which may steer some listeners off, but is a unique blend of the two previous albums. I won't go into much more detail other than to check out absolute masterpieces like the beatiful The Lonely One, So Young and the Wipers best pop song, Messenger. If you love music, in it's purest form, more than anything else, you will adore The Wipers, one of the most passionate, energetic and inspirational bands of all time.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
To me, The Wipers are comparable to bands like the Velvet Underground (before they finally became famous), Love, or Big Star: one of the greatest bands to ever plug in their amplifiers, and yet relatively unknown to the public at large. These guys are unreal! I profoundly regret that I never heard them live. I almost did. In the Winter of 1994 Nirvana was going to play the Aragon in Chicago, and the Wipers were going to open for them (the Wipers were major influences not only on Nirvana but most of the great bands to come out of the Pacific Northwest in the eighties and nineties). I was primed and ready. Unfortunately, the Wipers pulled out, and tragically I decided not to go to the concert. It turned out to be the last time Nirvana played Chicago.
This box set collects the first three albums by the Wipers. I have to confess that the second of these albums, YOUTH OF AMERICA, is my least favorite Wipers album. IS THIS REAL? isn't their best, but over the years it has had more replay album than almost any other album I own. Just one phenomenal cut after another. But the real gem of the album is OVER THE EDGE. It is far and away my favorite Wipers album, and one of my favorite albums period. The title track is also my favorite Wiper cut.
I write "The Wipers," but that is a misnomer. "The Wipers" was Greg Sage, and whoever he had playing drums and bass at a particular point varied from album to album. Sage is a decent singer, a very fine song writer, a musical visionary, and a stunning guitar player. I think comparisons to Jimi Hendrix are absurd. Their playing styles are strikingly different.
