    There is nothing this band does that isn't a "love at first listen" experience for me. Eclectic, rich and sexy all wrapped up into a moving, infectious groove. My boys, it seems you've done it once again.

    Some of their best songs are found here. "Bueva Vista" and "Flavors" are particular standouts.

    Nothing here will change your life, but rest assured that there's also little in the way of filler. (Oct 2000, p.104)

    The addition of remixed or alternative versions of favorites like "78 Stone Shuffle," "We Haven't Turned Around" and the complete Gomez rendition of "Getting Better" (featured in the first wave of the Phillips ad campaign) makes this project something for the fanatic to salivate over. As for the casual listener, ASTH could possibly leave you wondering what all the fuss is about, but at the very least gives a slight glimpse into the future and of things to come.

    This twisted, sublime, and otherwise genious U.K. pop outfit's toss-offs, b-sides and radio sessions border on surpassing the group's albums. [#48, p.92]
