Long Forgotten Songs: B-Sides & Covers 2000-2013 [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Gregory Heaney
B-side compilations can very easily be a hit or miss proposition for listeners, and more often than not, it's only the most die-hard fans who are interested in listening to the also-rans that weren't good enough to make it to the big leagues. In the liner notes to Long Forgotten Songs: B-Sides & Covers 2000-2013, Rise Against let the listener know that the songs that don't make their albums aren't cut for being bad, they're cut for not quite fitting in, and listening to the collection, it's a sentiment that seems to hold true. The songs here all feel fully realized and fleshed-out, so it's easy to imagine the band making some tough choices in the eleventh hour as ...

B-side compilations can very easily be a hit or miss proposition for listeners, and more often than not, it's only the most die-hard fans who are interested in listening to the also-rans that weren't good enough to make it to the big leagues. In the liner notes to Long Forgotten Songs: B-Sides & Covers 2000-2013, Rise Against let the listener know that the songs that don't make their albums aren't cut for being bad, they're cut for not quite fitting in, and listening to the collection, it's a sentiment that seems to hold true. The songs here all feel fully realized and fleshed-out, so it's easy to imagine the band making some tough choices in the eleventh hour as they were putting their albums together and trying to decide which unlucky song was going to get voted off the island, so to speak. More enlightening than the B-sides are the covers. Tackling tracks from Nirvana, Black Flag, Journey, and Bruce Springsteen (just to name a handful), the compilation provides a keen insight into the influences that helped the band craft their driving and accessible sound. On the surface, it almost feels like the band are playing the covers a bit too close to the originals, but played alongside some of their originals, the imprint these bands had on Rise Against is undeniable. While Long Forgotten Songs: B-Sides & Covers 2000-2013 might appeal more to longtime fans than casual listeners, it's a solid compilation of songs that hold up on their own and it's not immediately apparent to the listener why they were relegated to soundtracks and compilations in the first place.
From the Publisher
“The songs on this record are different versions of existing Rise Against songs, covers, or originals that never made it on a record for some reason. Common wisdom tells us that this reason is that a B-side is a song not good enough to make the cut. While I believe that logic can apply sometimes, I think it’s short-sighted. See, the songs that really aren’t good enough, you’ll never hear. They never make it outside of our practice space. If we finish a song, bring it to the studio, write lyrics, and see it to fruition, then it becomes one of the children that make up a family of songs. If we weren’t proud of it, it would have been scrapped along the way. How and why a song really ends up sitting on the sidelines happens when the record starts to take shape. Each song fits into the record like pieces of a puzzle. Sometimes you notice that you crafted two pieces that fill the same hole. Sometimes a song isn’t better or worse, it’s just redundant. By itself, it can survive on its own. But you only need so many linebackers or point guards or defensive men on a team. A record has an arc. It has a narrative. It should have variety by showcasing different soundscapes and moods and emotions. Like a good book, you want to keep the reader’s attention so they read all the way to the end. It might be really well written, but if you go on and on about the scenery or what the character is wearing or what the weather is like or...see? I’m losing you already. We have fast songs and slow songs and political songs. We have personal songs and dark songs and positive songs. We aim for balance on each record. Every song is like one of our children; some just get orphaned. These songs are the lost children of Rise Against.” – Rise Against
