Although Shakespear's Sister were the only group I went ga-ga over I didn't know anything about this release until recently.
Firstly the real gem of the item is the DVD. I had owned the two official VHS videos, which had long ago gone fuzzy, so to have all that footage on clear DVD, plus "I Can Drive", is a real treat and worth the price alone.
The CD has the main hits from the first two SS albums, plus some extras from "3" etc. Of the "fresh" later songs I really like the dark tones of "Waiting". The punchy "Excuse Me John" will get your feet tapping, but possibly the most memorable song for it's chorus is "Can U Wait That Long?", which I think is arguably the best post-Marcy song on the CD.
There is still the fun and slightly dark mystical tones a fan would expect from an SS release. The most fun new track for me, has to be "White Rabbit". When you first listen to this song it will sound mediocre and standard....but listen to it again, and really listen to the lyrics, and it will have you smiling and maybe uttering a giggle, and eventually you'll be singing "Ask Alice...." too!!
A superb release, and if you were a Shakespear's Sister fan from the beginning, then this will confirm to you why you were and still ARE a fan. EXCELLENT!
