5.0 out of 5 stars It's a shame about The Lemonheads... 4 Oct 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album collects the best of The Lemonheads' work while signed to Atlantic, so it covers the albums 'Lovey', 'It's a Shame About Ray', 'Come On Feel The Lemonheads' and 'Car Button Cloth'. Most of the material comes from the middle two albums; from 'Lovey' we have a version of 'Ride With Me' (not the album version) and from 'Car Button Cloth' we get the underrated 'Hospital' and 'The Outdoor Type'.
So Atlantic have packaged this up as a pop album, brushing the punk aggression of 'Lovey' under the carpet, minimising the 'my drug hell' references and presenting the lovable Evan Dando instead. Having said that, almost every song here is excellent bubblegum pop (though the 'new' track 'Rudy With A Flashlight' isn't up to much, really).
When you listen to this best-of, you realise how good Evan Dando is at (1) writing songs, and (2) singing them - the kind of stuff that the drug-focused media coverage never emphasised. I'm just hoping Evan gets his act together and sorts out a new label for himself... in the meantime, I could do someone compiling "The Best of The Lemonheads: The Taang! Years" - with 'Luka', 'Circle of One', 'Amazing Grace' and all the old ones...

5.0 out of 5 stars no lemon 20 Feb 2006
By David Johnson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
As best of albums goes this has to be one of my favoutites. I picked this up recently after being dismayed to find out my mum had chucked out my old Lemonheads CD´s when she moved house.
For me this is an excellent record that catalogues the band´s finest years. Personally I wasn´t left in the slightest bit disappointed by this. I feel Evan Dando produced his finest body of work during the years with Atlantic and although there are a couple of puzzling absentees from those albums you are made fully aware of his greatness as a song writer and the delicate beauty of his voice. On these songs you really see him mature as a songwriter as they moved away from the pop/punk averageness of their early years.
"Confetti," "Shame about Ray," "drug buddy" and "rudderless," were all favourites from my early teens and they have retained their infectiousness with the years.
There is the odd scrappy moment, "Hospital" is a track I don´t feel really deserved it´s place on the record along with the last track with Rick James. It seems he was passing by the studio that day. The presence of tracks like "outdoor type," which Evan often performed life is nice to see.
What is apparant when you listen to this album is that the songs really stand the test of time and this band were far more than a passing fad in the pop charts.
A fine testament to a great singer/songwriter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation! 28 April 2013
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
As a lifelong fan of The Lemonheads, I decided to buy this album to have all their best known songs on one CD. I know some fans might be disappointed that it doesn't include any of their early work before they signed with Atlantic Records, but this compilation does do what it states - it is the best of the Atlantic years.

My favourite tracks will always be 'It's A Shame About Ray' and 'My Drug Buddy', but there is much more to love here including the opening track 'Confetti', my favourite version of Simon & Garfunkle's classic 'Mrs. Robinson', the country style 'Big Gay Heart', and a wonderful acoustic 'Ride With Me'. Although they aren't as popular as they were in the 1990s, if you enjoy alternative rock music - this is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still in love(y) with the Lemonheads 26 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
Very good summary of all my favorite Lemonheads albums, even though Brass Buttons should be on it too. A must have, especially now it's getting more and more difficult to find the earliest albums on CD, one by one they're taken out of production. Would be nice if the booklet contained lyrics but oh well, Evan Dando's still gorgeous face makes up for that :-)

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For those who don't own the UK best of, this is a must buy album! A good selection of the genuinely best tracks released on atlantic, every one is a winner. For thise who already own the UK best of, this Japanese version is well worth investing in for the extra cover versions - from metallica to oasis!
