The Collection (1991-1998) contains all the highlights from the Mint Condition's first three albums, plus their contribution to the Jason's Lyric soundtrack, "If Trouble Were Money," and two new recordings. Since Mint Condition's albums were a little uneven, a collection of this sort is welcome, even if it arrives a little early; it offers an ideal retrospective of the group's first albums. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
