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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars THANKS FOR EVERYTHING, BOYS Dec 10 2000
Format:Audio CD
It may be beyond those of you who don't understand Toad like I do. Why I almost get a little misty-eyed when I remenisce about the music and the memory that so inevitabley comes with it. Remember, driving to Lake Powell, listening to "Dulcinea," while staring out the window, getting that much closer to understanding it all. Realizing what is really important in my life. The way "Little Heaven" and "All in All" helped make my unbearable Sophmore Year just a little more bareable. Or how after hearing "Whatever I Fear" for the first time with my best friend made me believe that there WAS some morality left in the media. I would hear those words over and over; "Do we expect these things to change by waking up and suddenly there they are?" Or how we'd ride around in Cody's Cougar on a hot summer afternoon, intentionally teasing ourselves with the magic of "Butterflies" that made me feel that serenity was too far to reach, but too close to ignore. And stranger, how it would happen every time. Or hanging the words to "Woodburning" and "Inside" on my wall. How it made me think every time I passed them. Or the emotions it brought up listening to the original version of "Crazy Life," how it gave me a headache to feel just how true it all was. And, waiting in line for hours on end just to get a decent seat at the "Coil" Concert, thousands of people jumping up and down at "one of alternative's greatest acts." But it was more for us, wasn't it? I drowned out the screaming fans and felt the music; experienced it. It dripped from my fingers like hot wax. It was a rush, a warm wave that conjured up every memory from my past with every chord. Man... Read more ›
