Throughout the late '90s, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Sublime paved the way for many ska-punk bands to make an appearance on commercial alternative radio and (thanks to their commercials) help to usher in a new generation of Chuck Taylor-Converse-sneaker-wearing-Two Tone fans . This latest installment in the 20th Century Masters collection covers the second half of the Bosstones' career. From the opening moments of "Someday I Suppose" to their cover of Kiss' "Detroit Rock City," it's a trip down memory lane, crowned by the album's prime jewel, the chart-topping crossover hit "The Impression That I Get." This is the only disc casual fans of the group will ever need, and one that diehards could use as a supplementary greatest hits until a full anthology spanning the group's entire career is issued.
A few good songs, but a bad collection.
I am a big Mighty Mighty Bosstones collection and came looking for a 'greatest hits' collection to get for a friend. There are some good songs here, but there's too much missing for this set to be considered good. There's nothing here from their early releases on the Taang! label, which is probably the best stuff they produced. Obviously, 'The Impression that I Get' is their big hit and a good song, and a couple of the other tunes here are good ('Someday I Suppose' and 'Hell of a Hat'), but the rest of this album is pretty forgettable. Check out the albums 'Don't Know How to Party' and 'Question the Answers' and find the CDs 'Devil's Night Out' and especially 'More Noise and Other Distrubances' which I'm not sure are available on iTunes, I'm afraid. If you NEED a Greatest Hits, get 'Live from the Middle East'.
A Mighty 'Mazin' CD
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones have quickly and eleqountly found a quick way to my heart. An amazing collection of songs and music. The passion and emotion is uplifiting-insipiring. I've always been a Reel Big Fish fan (If you haven't heard of them, I suggest you check them out as well), and am pleased to say that the Bosstones are just as talented in every way. My personal faveorite: The Impression That I Get is included in this collection. Basically, if you want to try to find a new band, and can't decide which Bosstones CD to get, this one is the one for you. A sprinkle of everything, turn it up and funk on.
Bosstones please come back
This album is best for those fans who initially bought lets face it, and never had the guts to check out the earlier stuff or the later albums. It's packed with great little gems, my fav on this album is she just happened. I'm glad it made it on this album. Use this as your primer to buying their other stuff, then buy Jackknife to a Swan, then their other older stuff. Too bad this doesn't have Hope I Never Lose My Wallet, or Tin Soldiers or wait a minute there's no 1-2-8? How can there be no 1-2-8? Oh Well, Bosstones please come back to us. Anyone interested in seeing these guys again need to help do something about it. Buy something of theirs then send them some mail and demand a new album and tours.
