Toad the Wet Sprocket is one of the few bands that can be dubbed "lyrical genius," and this CD brings that out. "P.S." is a wonderful opening song, and it's only the beginning. The album goes on to show other interesting works such as "Fall Down," "Crazy Life," and my personal favorite, "Whatever I Fear." There are a few duds, though, like "Jam" and "Way Away," but they hardly ruin the album. And then there are the weird tracks, "Hold Her Down" and "Silo Lullaby." I like the music in "Hold Her Down," but the lyrics are just too strange. "Silo Lullaby" honestly scares me ("Goodnight, sleep well, I'll see you with the rest of them in Hell...").
Anyway, "P.S. (A Toad Retrospective)" is a wonderful album all-around. If you are a newcomer to Toad, this is the best place to start. After you listen to this album, hopefully your curiosity in them will be aroused enough to get you to buy the rest.
