Well...some of these tracks WERE previously released...in the form of the "Mars Attacks" demos...and some of the newer ones were included with the Japanese import of "Famous Monsters." But most were unavailable until now...and they're well worth the price of this disc. Yes yes yes...I hear all of those so-called fiends out there saying "This isn't the REAL Misfits...go Buy Danzig's new album, DANZIG 753"...or whatever number he's currently on...innovative album titles that boy comes up with, eh? The point is this...if you don't like the new 'Fits albums, don't buy them. Simple. But don't try to tell others that their taste isn't as good as yours just because they're not as limited in their scope. Just because someone likes the newer 'Fits albums, that does not make them "stupid," as some have put it. Don't get me wrong...I'm a longtime fiend and my favorite 'Fits song is still "Astro Zombies"...but this is still a great compilation from the new 'Fits, who are just as good as the old 'Fits, in my opinion. Anyway...on to the songs. Many of these tracks are simply demos of songs that you already have if you're a fan of "A.P." and "F.M." Some are as good as the songs that appeared on those albums, some are better, and some fall a little short and benefitted greatly from their eventual reworkings. It's still a very interesting reference point, however, because it helps one to see where the songs came from. As for the other tracks, my favorites are "Bruiser" from George Romero's film of the same title, "No More Moments" (with Mikey doing an ominous Morrisonesque rant at the end), and "1,000,000 Years B.C." Also included are the original demo of "Dead Kings Rise," the final version of which appeared only on the original vinyl pressing of "A.P." and the demo of "Dr. Phibes Rises Again," the Kryst the Conquerer song which was chopped to an instrumental intro and became "The Abominable Dr. Phibes" on "A.P." The full song is much better than the snippet that you've heard might suggest. All in all, a great album...not the best, but it IS a compilation, so no one expected it to be. Give it a listen. And by the way, I'm willing to bet that most of the "old-school" fans who have panned this album because of it's lack of Glenn haven't even bothered to listen to it.
