2 stars This is one of those releases that makes you wonder. Two of the best tracks off of the Her Majesty album are balanced out with two of The Decemberists' weaker efforts. This is one of those cases where I think the band was eager to release the promo and slacked off on the B-side selections.

Billy Liar is a great tune, like I mentioned before as one of the best off of Her Majesty with touching melodies and realistic lyrics. Los Angeles, I'm Yours has often been referred to as a weaker track on the album, and musically I can't disagree with that statement. There isn't much there for substance, but what is there really gets me thinking. It is quite a good catchy song, and the simple rhythms get addicting after a while.

I don't recommend looking for this, but if you come across it and don't own the Her Majesty album yet it might something worth your time to check out. But for those of you that own the album already, save your cash for the next studio release!

2 stars.
