5.0 out of 5 stars Mmm... Not So Much Greatest Hits. April 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
OK, so Toad The Wet Sprocket will never be a Jennifer Lopez or Britney Spears. They never hit #1. They never even made the Top 10 (their biggest hit "All I Want" got to #15). But, they took their 4 Top 40 hits ("All I Want", "Walk On The Ocean", "Fall Down" and "Good Intentions"... as an aside "Something's Always Wrong" came depressingly close, peaking at #41) and added the rest of their singles and some absolute necessities, both from major label days and minor label days and made it into an album. I've seen reviews where it's been said that "they don't have enough greatest hits" -- but it doesn't SAY "Greatest Hits" on the packaging, now does it?
The result is a great panoramic view of their body of work. The new songs "Eyes Open Wide" and the previously only available online song "Silo Lullaby" are fantastic songs (as well as the previously rare "PS" for which the album is named). "Eyes Open Wide" is a great full-band slow song, while "Silo Lullaby" incorporates a lot of strings into a gorgeous ballad. Some people call it a weird song, but I've never found anything weird about it. It's one of their best creations.
Toad is a band that a lot of people tend to forget about, considering they were out in the days of the Gin Blossoms and bands that were similar that had bigger hits. But, I still think Toad is in a class by themselves. They proved themselves to have radio-friendly hits and still have a rabid fanbase 7 years after their last studio album -- judging from the fact that I wanted to see them on the reunion tour and the blasted thing sold out in my area before I could secure tickets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Undiscovered rarities! March 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
"PS A Toad Retrospective" is somewhat an album for the fans only. It is a farewll bid for the band who rose to stardom in their late teens and early twenties writing about experiences about God, broken relationships, love and faith. In this particular compilation, you couldn't ask for more as enhanced hits from back then include "All I Want", my all time favorite and reminds me of dark times "Something's Always Wrong", the upbeat "Good Intentions" and the perfect rock alternative offerings from the 1997's "Coil" album is also included such as "Come Down" and "Whatever I Fear" are great tracks off the selection. Unreleased songs such as "PS" and "Silo Lullaby" are so tearful and really exudes too much emotion. Glen Phillips has a voice of an angel. It's a good thing they reunited and has done a gig recently and I hope that they will all come back together and put a very modern "Toad The Wet Sprocket". That would be nice. Get their early albums> "Pale", "Dulcinea", and "Coil" are the best choices! Get all their albums! It's worth every penny!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughts from a TRUE fan Sept. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
Toad the Wet Sprocket ROCKS! And so does P.S. Containing all their best songs from their begining (Way Away) to their end (Silo Lulaby). It is now my favourite Toad cd, how could it not. Sure Silo Lulaby is a little weird. But it was needed to end this cd, not to mention a beautiful addition once you get used to it. For those of you that don't understand, you need to listen to Toad better. It is the perfect retrospective. If you don't already own it, buy it. If you do own it, treasure it and listen to it at least once daily.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome wrapup for an awesome band June 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
yes, this is a great CD, but Janson Kemp, please keep your personal narratives to yourselves. Nobody really cares where you were when you listened to it or what emotions it brought out. if we wanted to know how you felt we would ask you, but I don't think anybody does, so stick with reviewing the CD, okay?

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly a Greatest Hits CD Dec 31 2002
By sKy
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars better than toad stool July 10 2002
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
This is a great compilation no doubt. All the hits you've heard on the radio, and more. "Something's always wrong", "Walk on the ocean", and "Crazy life" are all here. I only wish it included a bit more from the first two albums. In fact if your looking for their best record, minus the radio songs, I highly suggest "Pale". It is the best thing to listen to sitting in your car at the county park on a summer night while enjoying a Dr.Pepper and a smoke. Oh yeah, and Toad is many times better than the Gin blossoms.
