More of the same, helped by the presence of some decent covers that at least have something memorable in their music, though the band rips through "Tried to Hide" so fast that it's rather difficult at first to recognize the 13th Floor Elevators standard. "7 & 7 Is" works better, and their cover of Pete Townshend's neglected classic "The Good's Gone" is probably the best track on this 22-song collection, drawn from various singles, B-sides, EPs, and albums. ~ Bruce Eder
