TFU was one of the greatest bands to ever grace the Solid State label. This CD is a fitting testimony to them. I would still have to recommend the whole Plastic Soul Impalement album over this CD, but for those of us who weren't lucky enough to obtain some of their rarer material (like the alternate version of "One Zero One"), it is a nice way to go. If you own both "Plastic Soul Impalement", and "Throwing a Wrench into the American Music Machine" then all you need is this one album to own every song they released. The whole "Falling Cycle LP" is on this CD. I personaly prefer the full version of "Pretty Picture of Lies" more than I do the original, but the original's inclusion on this album makes since. I've never cared for the song "Tennessee Midget" and would have preferred the inclusion of "Seeing-Eye Fruit Bat" or "The Art of Killing a Copying Machine" over it. The songs are well mixed through out the CD, but the CD seems a little rough; due to the differences in quality (and style) between their albums. Still... this is one greatest hits album that I'm sure I'll enjoy for a long time.
As a side note, the Clark brothers (the brains behind TFU) now have a band called Demon Hunter. DH is a metal band (a little softer than Living Sacrifice), and as much as I love their music, I still think Plasic Soul Impalement is the greatest album that the Clarks have released, and, in my opinion, one of the greatest albums of all time.
