4 stars There are two versions of this release. The first, and easiest to find, it the double disc version that is shown here. The other is a four disc version that is out of print and have two other discs that focused more so on the earlier part of the groups career. That said, this is like a history of the Residents done backwards with their music. What I mean by that is, instead of starting with songs that started their career, they started with the latest songs and progressed backwards through their catelogue. There are goodies from Duck Stab/Buster & Glen, The Commercial Album, and many songs that are rare and hard to come by (which really applies to anything by the Residents since almost everything is out of print) . Anyway, there are also compressed takes of Eskimo, Third Reich & Roll and Fingerprince; and, not to mention, the awesome cover of Satisfaction that the Residents did. It's worth getting if you are a fan already and can't get enough of the group, or if you want to get into the group and are curious as to how they have progressed in their sound over the years. Hopefully it won't go out of print soon like everything else.
