about

Sixteen track compilation of what is the best of the available Real Numbers material - this CD contains all of the tunes from the 12"es on Three Dimensional and the Florida's Dying 7", and ignores the tracks from the first two singles. Which makes sense, in that all of the stuff included is where Eli really "found" the Real Numbers sound (and uniform art aesthetic) and shows off the completed idea for the band, with the Anglophilia in full bloom and songwriting really at it's cleverest. Those early singles, while certainly not bad, just don't seem like what the band was meant to be. Anyway, this thing is pretty handy to have around, ...Eli wrote a shitload of hits over these records that all sound even better back-to-back. TVPs, The Times, Teenage Filmstars, even some Pooh Sticks perhaps. Delightful music. - Terminal Boredom

...the latest from these cats stakes out and stripmines the intersection between the Simpletones, Vaselines, and T.V. Personalities—all clean-channel guitars and happy hooks explored at various tempos. Great stuff... - Razorcake
