An OK selection of songs, but you get a better overview of why the Replacements were so essential from LET IT BE, TIM, and even PLEASED TO MEET ME. In 66 minutes, this compilation tracks the rise, the peak, and sad fall, from their early days (noise and shouting) to the dull corporate rock of their last two LPs. Several classics are missing, "Sixteen Blue," "Androgynous," and "Nightclub Jitters" among them. Those songs and a couple more could have fit easily on this disc if they'd cut the two pointless "new" tracks.

The Replacements, who have been playing some reunion shows (well, two of them have), are an iconic and influential band of the American 80s underground. Fittingly, an box set of music form that era is called, "Left of the Dial," after one of their songs. I'm not sure why this compilation exists, as you can plow through their discography in a single day. The songs on here are great (I just ignored the two new recordings), but I'd skip this and start with "Let It Be" and "Tim" and then work both forwards and backwards.
