5.0 out of 5 stars It's a shame about The Lemonheads..., 4 Oct. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Best Of The Lemonheads: The Atlantic Years (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...
