A selection of tracks mostly culled from Blind Melon's first two albums, with the addition of a couple of inclusions from NICO, the collection released after singer Shannon Hoon's 1995 death from an overdose, as well as previously unreleased live material. Though the still-fresh and gloriously strange-sounding "No Rain" is the most instantly recognizable song here, the compilation also spotlights the band's more progressive tendencies in cuts like the Led Zep-flavored "2X4," while "Soup"'s flavorful combination of gentle acoustic textures and hard-edged rocking hints at a sadly unrealized promise of greatness.
