The first time I listened to this album, I swear I was transported back to 1995. Looking back on so many great memories; my first big show – Rancid with AFI at the Warehouse, endless days of skateboarding and rocking my first band. So rad!
I will admit, I haven’t been super into Lagwagon since the original drummer left and being disappointed by their mediocre performance at Warped Tour ’97. But that hasn’t stopped me from loving this record and has actually got me listening to their newer albums with a new found fondness.
About 70% of it is from the first three albums, which in my opinion are their best. From fuckin’ fast tunes like Island Of Shame and Stokin’ The Neighbors to crowd-pleasers Violins and Beer Goggles. They cover all the greats.
If you are, or ever were a Lagwagon fan, I highly recommend you pick this one up.
