4.0 out of 5 stars Fun album May 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
Out of sheer randomness, this seems to be the first Death Cab For Cutie album that I've acquired or even listened to, so I have not all that much in the way of context here.

That said, I like this a lot. It's happy bouncy music, and there's absoutely nothing to dislike. I hear some echoes of Built To Spill here and there, and perhaps even a touch of Olivia Tremor Control. I'd have to say that my initial preference is for the first 8 tracks that, as I understand it, composed the original album - they seem a bit more consistent and hang together nicely. But the 10 additional tracks are damned fun (especially the Smith's cover, lyrical gaffes aside)- the band seems to be having a great time, and it's infectious.
Considering that this album seems to be peripheral to the bulk of these guys' output, I'm looking forward to see what the rest of their catalogue has in store.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Long-term Resident in My CD Player Feb. 17 2004
By Evin
Format:Audio CD
This CD was a Christmas gift and an amazing one at that. The melodies are addictive! I was a somewhat interested DCfC fan before I heard this album, now I am a true fan. The number of tracks makes this CD a bargain and the cover is a really neat picture of Bellingham. If you like DCfC or want to get to know their music, this is a great addition to your CD collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Typical Death Cab Dec 29 2003
By T. Lee
Format:Audio CD
What the heck was Ben Gibbard thinking?!?! The cover of the Smith's "This Charming Man" is downright embarassing and should of never seen the light of day. The keyboards in the track "Tomorrow" borrow heavily from New Order's "Temptation." Bernard Sumner and Co. deserve writing credit for this song. The rest of the tracks are pretty mediocre at best...painful as going to the dentist at their worst.
If you are new to Death Cab...skip this cd and go get "The Photo Album" or "We have the Facts" instead. And while you're at it get the Postal Service's "Give Up" as well. These albums are better in every possible way than this cd of rare B-sides and demos.

4.0 out of 5 stars Death Cab album for die hard fans July 26 2003
By Brian
Format:Audio CD
This album is a collection of rarities and b-sides and I would not reccomend it to the first time death cab buyer your best bet is to pick up the photo album the biggest plus to this album is the smiths cover of this charmning man which is done semi tastefully aside from a few lyrical miffs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album for fans or newbies April 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'm fairly familiar with DCFC, having seen them live three times and hearing most of their songs.
This is one of my favorite Death Cab albums. It's raw and fun. It feels like the band is having fun as they play the music. It has a garage jam session feel yet sounds great. If you like Death Cab, you should have this album.
Whether or not you've heard this band before, I strongly reccommend this album!

1.0 out of 5 stars Are you kidding? Feb. 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
I enjoyed the Forbidden Love EP way back when. But now what is all the hype? And what is with the horrendous Smiths cover?
Give me a break.
