Missing some great tunes,
This review is from: Laughing All The Way To The Cleaners - The Best Of (Audio CD)
This would be a 5 star best of compilation album if only it was more complete and less arbitrary. Some of their greatest songs are missing, and some weaker entrants are included. Glaring omissions include Black Gown, Rule of Three, Something's Missing, Rest Assured, Dawn Can't Decide, I'll Do It Anyway, You Can Take It With You, Rockin' Stroll, and Stove! If they managed to fit 47 songs, they might have just as well either fleshed it out some more and included these other great tracks, or more selectively omitted a few of the lesser tunes to make room for the aforementioned titles. Nevertheless, it's a testament to their best years and albums that one has to quibble over there not being enough songs on a 47 song / 2 disc album. This is a good album for newcomers to the band, old fans should probably forgo this and just hang onto your old albums to have a more complete collection. Hopefully there will be yet another Lemonheads album of new material to come.
