Come Trip on a Stereo Song

It's a curious holdover from the music industry's past that we still call best-of compilations "greatest hits." The tunes included on the new greatest hits compilation from Apples in Stereo could hardly be called hits by traditional standards, yet here we are with the cheekily-titled #1 Hits Explosion - out tomorrow. Methinks the band understands the irony.

Regardless, this is probably the right dose for casual fans of the group, or at least a manageable introduction. All Music Guide says "the collection focuses mostly on the ultra-hooky, power pop-influenced side of the band." If that doesn't scream Too Poppy I don't know what else does.


By the way, if you sign up for their official mailing list you'll get a free MP3! Who doesn't love free? Go here.
