"Yet another fine and elaborate opus from NMA including B-sides and previously unreleased tracks. In comparison to other bands that are struggling to fill their regular publications with songs of equal quality, NMA`s huge songwriting potential is again proved in impressive manner. It took some time to get into some songs, so I would recommend uptempo tracks like "Brother" for the first encounter. Lost songs contains some of my favorite songs by NMA: "Trees in winter" - a heartripping ballad and "Knife" a fast poetic hymn to love and life. There's also a brilliant remix of "Over the wire" - highly recommendable. Even "Sunset" - which I first relegated as a rather stranger journey into banjo-style country music - is now running in endless loops in my CD player. Overall a fascinating experience to discover this valley of lost songs."
Not bad, not super duper fantastic

"I can't figure out why this band isn't huge. All these songs are b-sides of singles or unreleased tracks. Most bands would kill for songs like these. Southwest and Brother are as good as anything they have done. And listen to the words of Brother, about the clash between Islam and Christianity. Justin Sullivan is so far ahead of his time. This album is a must have for any fan of intelligent rock music."
Good Album for an Old NMA fan

"I like this Album, especially the second Disk. Definitely worth the money. The final track, the remix of "Over the Wire" is incredible, and worth the price of the Album alone in my opinion. In general, I don't like remixes, but this one is great!!!"
