4 stars 3.5 stars really, but as it's a low price release I'll round it up to 4 stars for being such good value.

This is a collection of The Residents' more accessible material in reverse chronological order, and covers most of their main releases. The focus here is on their more conventional song based material, so it's not brilliantly representative of their output as a whole, but the chances are that if you like this stuff you'll enjoy a lot of their wierder excursions as well. The selections from Roadworms (God's Magic Finger and Hanging By His Hair) are probably the pick of the bunch, but everything on here is pretty good.

Cautiously recommended if you want to dip a toe in the water, but remember that this isn't the whole story.

Syzygy | 4/5 |
