2 stars First a note: I haven't heard the last two tracks of this compilation because the two-in- one CD excludes them. I presume this draws from the two first Supersister albums plus a live recording of 'Wow'. Mostly the pros and cons I talked about Pudding en Gisteren concern this album too. Great, innovative music and silliness thrown in the same basket, well shaken. This time the humouresque ingredient is given bigger share. Some of it appeals to me, some don't. And the lack of longer artistic pieces drop a couple of stars for me. 'Gonna Take Easy' is an irritating song lasting rightfully under two minutes. 'Groupies of the Band' is very amusing track with a girl group singing a fast refrain, but in the 4 and half minutes Supersister have stirred in some irritating moments of rockshow mockery. And the 12-minute live jamming of 'Wow' has also those silly silly repetitions. "Wowwowwowwowwowwow" in a dirty voice. Hmph! Some more dignity and concentration into the musical talent you have, please, lads!

'She Was Naked' is a nice opener song. Peacefulness interrupted with a guitar riff, a parallel track of 'Radio' on Pudding album. 'Spiral Staircase' isn't musically so superb, trying and failing to catch the surreal atmosphere of the odd lyrics, where some tea is being drunk with a "Schizophrenic Staircase Gnome". (Had they been listening to GONG?) Two shortish tracks are showing the way into the more mature musicality of Pudding en Gisteren. But clearly this album is the lesser part of my 2-on-1 CD.
