Product Description

Boston singer-songwriter Evan Dando broke through to the mainstream in 1992 with Mrs Robinson , a Simon and Garfunkel cover that took his band the Lemonheads to the UK Top 20. But this was the tip of a musical iceberg founded on an indie-label career that had set the press purring. Our generous 47-track compilation profiles the idiosyncratic talent behind the classic It s A Shame About Ray album and much more zesty music.

My only concern about buying a 47 track Lemonheads compilation for under a fiver was whether the sound quality would be poor. Having listened to it, the sound is just as good (and in some instances better) than from the original albums. This compilation contains all 'the greats' and some hard to find tracks like 'Different Drum' which would be worth the purchase price alone. My only half serious complaint is that I almost wish it didn't include tracks from 'Shame about Ray' as they are best heard in the context of that classic album. Every Lemonheads fan subconsciously knows that 'Rudderless' should segue gorgeously into 'My Drug Buddy'. Anybody getting started with the Lemonheads should begin with 'Shame about Ray' and then move onto this.

The Lemonheads are a band who shone so brightly for a short period of time (Come on Feel and Shame About Ray) and then seemed to fade. Here we have 47 tracks from their entire career (although only three tracks from Shame About Ray don't appear) that shows the thrashy beginnings to the most recent covers CD. Its a real joy to hear pretty much everything on the first CD. That is apart from the awful (for me) cover of Step By Step. Yes the New Kids On The Block track. There was an ease when listening to the band in their full flow and rudderless, Drug Buddy, Big Gay Heart, Mallo Cup and Alisons Starting To Happen show this, the last two being on CD Two. Its CD two that has the alternate versions of Rick James Style and Down About It amongst others. And this doesn't quite work as the second CD doesn't flow as easily to these ears.

The minor quibbles aside this is 47 tracks for a fiver. This is a band that just made you smile (except when I saw them live a couple of years ago as they were the only band I have ever seen without an encore, he looked miserable). The odd track might be missing but overall this is a great reminder of how good Evan Dando and his chums at that particular moment could be.

This review will be biased, as i love The Lemonheads! At 47 tracks, 'Laughing All The Way To The Cleaners' is a pretty comprehensive collection of The Lemonheads, though i did wonder, as the owner of all their studio albums, what was in it for me? It turns out that the inclusion of a few b-sides and rare cover versions means that it's a must buy, even for the die-hards. It's not compiled chronologically, so it has a real random quality to it, which shows their versatility. This is a far superior compilation than the 'Atlantic Years-best of', which managed to virtually ignore the 'Lovey' album. Evan Dando is a genius, and the poster boy of a generation/slacker tag does him no justice at all.

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.

The Lemonheads are a band who seem to have fallen completely off the radar for most music fans, despite making some of the most awesome music of the 90s. I'll admit this compilation isn't really the ideal way of listening to the band; half the attraction was that they made concise, beautiful, effective songs that never dragged, with most albums coming in at an efficient 25-40 minutes and never outstaying their welcome. This is a more sprawling showcase for the band, with forty seven tracks across two discs.

Still, we live in the Ipod era, where most people pick and choose tracks and firmly believe that more is indeed more, downloading everything and anything left right and centre due to the incredible availability of modern music. In that context, the record works perfectly, giving huge value for its £4.99 price here in the UK, with every period of the band represented and even with some harder to find stuff present, B-Sides and EP tracks and such. In terms of all their great songs, it's pretty completist.

The music speaks for itself, melodic, rocking, vulnerable and gutsy. The criticism for some is that they're too lightweight and fluffy, but honestly I find that refreshing, especially as an antidote to the grunge era they thrived in. If you've never heard them before, I can't recommend this enough. Production is good as well, not sure if they've cleaned up some of the early stuff but it sounds like it.

On a sidenote, this is still a good purchase if you already own most of the albums, since a lot of the tracks come in the alternative single versions, some with slight but interesting changes ('The Outdoor Type') and some sounding radically different ('Down About It').
