Biography

Formed in New York in 1996, Fountains Of Wayne took its name from an iconic garden store in nearby Wayne, NJ (which, sadly, closed recently). The band has received steady critical accolades since its inception; "Dean Of American Rock Critics" Robert Christgau has called them "lyric poets" and "true art heroes."

3.0 out of 5 stars Fountains only intermittently sparkling 17 July 2005
By bunters
Format:Audio CD
Fountains of Wayne's gently mocking suburban power-pop is a thing to be cherished. Invidious comparisons with Weezer, Semisonic, Ben Folds (with or without his Five) and a raft of US geek-rock also-rans don't change a thing: for three albums Chris Collingwood and Adam Schlesinger have tapped into a seemingly inexhaustible seam of three-minute guitar pop gold and left the opposition standing. These guys can't write a song without at least one irresistibly catchy guitar line, smart turn of phrase or thrilling harmony in it: their lyrics are miniature small-town soap operas with a trademark mordant wit and ingenuity which, to my mind, puts them up there with Ray Davies, Neil Finn and Difford and Tilbrook at their very best. So with this grab-bag of B-sides and rarities they have much to live up to.
It's not just Phill Jupitus who said it, it's been mentioned in just about every review of this I've seen that this band's outtakes are far better than stuff on most people's proper albums. That said, if you're expecting another Fountains of Wayne classic here, you'll be slightly disappointed. As with so many double albums, there is a great single album in here fighting to get out.
I've been a huge Fountains of Wayne fan from back in Radiation Vibe days, but a lot of this was new to me. There are some genuine gems: a new, archetypal, loser-strikes-lucky tale The Girl I Can't Forget, their cracking Oasis pastiche Elevator Up, the poignant song of love gone sour Kid Gloves and the Simon and Garfunkel-ish Places. Plus, if you're already looking forward to the festive season, skip their novelty hit I Want an Alien for Christmas (written for Hanson, who should really have taken it) and listen to the hilarious flipside The Man in the Santa Suit instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poptastic! 13 July 2005
By sarahalliez VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Having been a fan of Fountains of Wayne since the late 90s, I had some of these as singles but was still delighted to purchase this. As a collection of singles, covers and live cuts, it can't be bettered; as Phill Jupitus said on 6 Music the day it was released "it's better than most bands' proper albums" and it is. The sleevenotes are a delight as well, capturing Adam and Chris' wry humour and wit. My personal favourites are the novelty Christmas songs "Alien for Christmas" and "Man in a Santa Suit" as I'd never heard them before but the new song "Girl I Can't Forget" is a cracker as well. Buy the other 3 albums and get this as well, you won't regret letting Fountains of wayne into your life.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good collection, but not the cream of the crop 6 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Fountains of Wayne since I picked up Welcome Interstate Managers in a Borders store in the US while on holiday, and I bought this album as soon as it came out. It comprises a collection of B-sides and live versions etc which have not been on any of the previous albums. However, while you do get 2 discs and 30 tracks for your money (27 of which are real songs), there are not that many songs which stand out as special. But the covers (Baby One More Time, Can't Get It Out Of My Head and (oddly) Aztec Camera's Killermont Street) are quite well done, and give a FoW feel to the originals. Worth buying, but don't expect it to be as good as their precious albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly wonderful... 22 Nov 2008
By Fatboy
Format:Audio CD
If like me you've played the four regular Fountains of Wayne albums into the ground and you're wondering about buying this collections of 'out-takes', stop wondering and do yourself a huge favour. Get this album and start the love affair all over again.

I love this band, and by any standards this is as good as the best of their stuff (which let's face it is just about all of it).

And check out iTunes-only 'Live in Soho'
