Goo Goo Dolls - What I Learned About Ego, Opinion, Art & Commerce: Wikipedia Album Entry
The thing about this album is that it's a 'best of' compilation but the tracks are original to this release. There are semi-acoustic versions which go full on rock half way through, there are alternative arrangements and there are re-recordings, all of which compliment the writing of the individual tracks and make the record feel like one whole 'album'.
Because it's a 'best of' not a 'greatest hits', this means it's all killer no filler so there are tracks from every album prior to this release be it on an indie label or a major, And the obvious big hits aren't all here just to shift units.
When on Metal Blade the scuzzy demo feel of 3 Days In February sounded lo-fi cool, but clean and crisp like it is here it's like the missing link between the indie punk band of the late 80's who wrote that song and the soundtrack AOR band of ten year after.
