This may be an outtakes compilation, but it's definitely a must-hear for Ween fans even if they're ones who aren't quite fanatical enough to have picked up all the live Chocodog releases. Despite the product description, none of the tracks have been previously released officially (a few have been bootlegged, but in different versions), and almost all of them are quality enough to have made the albums. Actually there's no information in the liner notes about when each track was recorded, although occasionally just by the "feel" of a song you can make a guess (the Pink Floyd-inspired "Did You See Me" was most likely left-over from The Mollusk or Quebec, and the unabashed soft rock of "Someday" smacks of White Pepper, while the tinny drum machines on "Big Fat F***" and "Tastes Good On The Bun" indicate they were probably from earlier on). Anyway, while it's obvious that these tracks span all over the band's career, this compilation flows almost about as well as the average Ween album, due to a combination of savy track listing and how eclectic the band generally is anyway. There are all kinds of should-have-been classics here, my favorites being the dead-on Thin Lizzy homage "Gabrielle", the raunchy sex-funk of "Monique The Freak" (which will appeal to anyone who loved "LMLYP"), and the previously mentioned soft-rock closer "Someday" (come on, how can you beat a slickly produced Wings-style prom theme ballad that happens to inexplicably include the verse "sunday... monday... tuesday... is pizza day... pizza day"?). If you haven't gotten this already, grab it before it's out of print. Again, don't let the outtakes thing dissuade you, on the whole this release is at least as strong as their last few albums.
