This album is a combination of The Young Knives' first EP (The Young Knives Are Dead) and a collection of B-sides from the early days. These recordings predate the first album - Voices of Animals and Men.

Young Knives are one of the most refreshing bands around, and to dismiss them out of hand (as Stevo-1 did) is unfair. I have been a fan for a long time (which might explain the slight bias in this review) and used to see them playing these songs in clubs in Oxford many years ago. They have the energy of Britpop, but a sound which is still fresh and all their own.

Stand-out tracks on this album include electro-indie rocker 'Rollerskater', the ballad 'English Rose' and Beefheart-like Working Hands.

With tight guitars, amusing lyrics and catchy upbeat tunes, Young Knives are a band worth checking out. I felt their first full album was (only a little) disappointing, but new album Superabundance returns to this earlier, bouncier, happier sound. If you like that, you'll love this!

This is one of most refreshing bands to be heard for a long time, unpretentious fun, some great lyrics that make you laugh and catchy tunes in abundance. Long live the Young Knives. I do agree about that Vampire Weekend CD though, very nice and also highly original.

A great collection of early Young Knives songs - not over-priduced, but rather edgy, raw and direct. Great little CD!

As my title suggests a few more songs available on this version, hence the............. and some.............. For die hard fans, this is a must have.

I have listened to all of the other albums, and own them. This is probably the worst album to date. It feels like its just a poorly put together album that was either rushed or the band did not care about the music.
