Tepid Peppermint Wonderland - A Retrospective ~ Brian Jonestown Massacre

2.0 out of 5 stars One-dimensional, 8 Aug 2005
Being a compilation of early songs from a number of recordings I thought this would be a great way to get into the band. But I think the compilers were a bit one-dimensional and I'd query their song choices. I'd recommend the album Take It From The Man! as a better place to start because it hangs together well as a record which this somehow doesn't - and Man! has more variety. I got Tepid Peppermint Wonderland and Take It From The Man! at the same time which was lucky, because on the evidence of this compilation I wasn't inspired to look any further, but after listening to Take It From The Man! I will probably buy more BJM albums.
