Album Review

Toad the Wet Sprocket's rarities and B-sides collection In Light Syrup works surprisingly well. Instead of sounding like a motley assortment of leftovers, the record forms a cohesive whole and highlights the group's considerable melodic talents. There aren't many departures from their gentle, R.E.M.-derived folk-rock, but that is the band's strongest point. No fan of Toad will be disappointed by In Light Syrup.

Great Album

Toad is one of the most underrated bands of the 90's and this is definitely an underrated album! This is a solid work, especially considering that it's B-sides. There are definitely some Toad greatest hits on this one - "Brother", "All in All", and "Hobbit on the Rocks."

Agreed this is not their best - BUT IT'S B-SIDES!!!

Actually, There are a few songs on this album that will forever be some of my favs. - Little Heaven Are We Afraid All Right - one of my all time favorite Toad tunes This album is a spread over a few years of Toad. A must have for a true Toad fan.

Are we Afraid to give this CD 5 stars?
