CD Reviews

Early versions of Smashmouth classics!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The guy reviewing this that said re-used? Wrong. These were recorded BEFORE FYM. :) Smashmouth deserves much better reviews on their early studio work, and the 're-using' on FYM (not on this one!), was just rerecorded for better studio-quality sound on a widely-released album. This cd is dated after FYM because it's stuff that wasn't really gonna be released, but they thought fans would like to hear early versions of their FYM favorites. It's really disappointing to see that a few people didn't get it."
A Good CD, But Even Better Without "Sorry"

"When I first saw the songs on this CD, I was a little worried. I thought that maybe Smash Mouth was running out of gas or something, because there weren't any recognizeable new songs (There are, however, a few songs from Fush and a different version of one of the Astro Lounge songs. When I first listened to the CD, I was pleasantly surprised. There are a lot of good songs here, like Burn Cycle, Strung, I Had You (Not Listed as a track on the CD), and Solitude. However, for me, the 2 definite stand-outs on this CD are "Every Word" and "If You Don't". I think "Every Word" is a great, sentimental (Yes, I said sentimental) song. Furthermore, I would strongly advise Smash Mouth to release a single of "If You Don't". I own all 3 Smash Mouth CD's, and I honestly think that "If You Don't" is just as good as "All Star" or "Walking on the Sun". Just to reiterate, Smash Mouth would be well-advised to release that song as a single. It's that good. Despite all the praise I have for this CD, I have one big gripe with it, and I can sum it up in one word: "Sorry". I think this song is rude and vulgar. They should be "Sorry" they had to put this song on this CD. In fact, that song alone cost it a star. In review, great CD, lose "Sorry""
