    These “lost” recordings are generally better than anything the band has done since.

    The album is so much more than a set of rough drafts of more considered compositions. These 1998 offerings succeed in their own right.

    All the core elements of Beachwood Sparks are here, but there’s also more, and less, at the same time.

    So far, so far out. [Feb 2014, p.89]

    The only mild complaint would be that some tracks feel a little too long (even for the genre) and sometimes a tad repetitive.

    The heavy chords of the album-opening title track are a surprising jolt, yet maintain the same breezy Laurel Canyon harmonies for which the band later became known.
