Alkaline Trio have now got to the stage where they no longer need to impress. Through their 10 years of dark punk rock, they've put together 6 albums, each with their own assembly of fan-favourite songs and singles. This CD features 22 songs that are not found on this albums. These include b-sides, rarities, covers and 1 off releases.

Let's start with the positives. There are 22 songs on the cd as well as the bonus video dvd. These songs include high quality songs that SHOULD have been included on albums (how the hell did 'Fall victim' get on Crimson instead of 'While You're Waiting'?!?). Other great songs include anti-war release 'Warbrain', rare 'happy' song 'We can never break up', epic 'Queen of Pain' and the original version of Sadie. Also included in the booklet is the bands story behind each song in their own words - something i wish all bands would do.

In terms of bad points, there really isn't any. If you live in Europe or the UK, you'll find 4 of the songs on UK-releases of 'Maybe i'll catch Fire' and 'Good Mourning' but who cares when there's 22 songs to choose from. Most of the songs are good, well written songs, not half-finished attempts included as fodder. For £7 you really can't fault it. A great release from a great band.

I was pretty psyched when this came out, along with the scraps companion and for anyone who likes Alkaline Trio I would definitely recommend this one. It has a good spread of songs from across their career and some b-sides and splits that a lot of people miss otherwise.
11-16 (Fine without you - wait for the blackout) are all origianlly from the One Man Army splitAlkaline Trio/One Man Army which is also definitely worth checking out.
This collection could quite possibly be my favorite Alkaline Trio album, it might even come out slightly ahead of Goddamnit for me.

CD and DVD? For only £7? Least, that's what I paid and was definately worth it. You get interviews with the amazing trio (Matt is hilarious), their current music videos including Mercy Me (a personal favourite), loads of odds and ends and of course some brilliant live footage. All this and no mention of the excellent CD, which of course is quite great and unique for the trio as it features B-sides and rare songs spanning throughout their carrer so there is a healthy variety of the band's sound on there. Old fan's and newcomers to the Trio scene will not be disappointed, guaranteed!Goddamnit

Melodic Punkrock at it's best. These forgotten Tracks, B-Sides, EP's an so on are really good material, the first half ist overwhelming. If you like AT, this is a must-have.
