Wonsaponatime [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Released simultaneously with Anthology, Wonsaponatime condenses a four-disc box set into a digestible single disc that feels more revelatory than its parent.

For that alone, Wonsaponatime is as welcome an addition to his catalog as the exhaustive Anthology.
