The Maniacs’ peak was on In My Tribe and Blind Man’s Zoo. Many of the other songs just don’t match the songs from those albums. The best of disc probably rates 3 ½ stars and the rarities disc is about 2 ½ stars. Natalie Merchant and her band mates were idealists whose execution didn’t always match their ambition. Protest music should have more heat than they generated.

If you want to hear Natalie Merchant at her very best and the distinctive guitar work of the late great Robert Buck, then this is the CD set for you. This is smart music, no love songs. Socially conscious lyrics put to great music. The upbeat Natalie that her ''solo'' fans have missed is all here. From the weird wild early days, to classics songs with meaning like: Don't Talk (alcohol abuse) What's the Matter Here (battered children) Hey Jack Kerouac (the beat poets) Poison in the Well (precursor to Erin Brockovich) Eat for Two (youth pregnancy) Big hits like: Like The Weather, Candy Everybody Wants, These Are Days, and the Springsteen/Smith cover Because The Night. CD 2 has some great rare gems like the Cat Stevens cover Peace Train, no longer available on the classic In My Tribe CD, and songs that fans know from cd single added tracks, like some great covers of the likes of John Prine, Lulu, Morrissey, Jackson Browne, Tom Waits, David Bowie, etc. This is one of those ''best of'' CD's that will make you want to go out and get all the 10,000 Maniacs CD's.

This is an almost perfect chronicle of the 10,000 Maniac's years together. I was at their final show at Lake Chataqua and I will never forget it. I say it is ALMOST perfect, because I was sad to see that Scorpio Rising wasn't included. I have one of the 200 or so original demo records with Planned Obsolesence. The quality of the remaster is amazing. I love this CD and I love the band.
