I think A-Sides is a better hits compilation than 'Telephantasm', but I feel that this is still worth buying for the unreleased nuggets, alternate versions, and some of the early tracks that were left off 'A-Sides'. Also, I'm dying to get the DVD and finally have the 'Black Hole Sun' video!
A-Sides is the better compilation. "Nothing To Say and Loud Love" are great songs, yet they kept them off Telephantasm? Actually it doesn't matter for me anyways as I own all their albums. I make CDR copies of all my cd's now, (cause I got sick of buying them over and over) so I'm just going to download that "Black Rain" track for a buck and, re-copy Badmotorfinger with that at the end. If you like videos, more power to you but I grew out of that in the mid 90's and I especially hate when bands substitute studio versions wtih live tracks. Save live songs for the all live albums please!
