MILLENCOLIN: The Melacholy Collection: CD

I’m going to quote the little sticker that was attached to the cover. “This CD includes the EPs ‘Use Your Nose’ & ‘Skauch,’ the B-sides of the singles and some ‘hard to get’ songs.” 22 songs spanning 47 minutes. I’ve always enjoyed these Swedes with their blend of melodicore and light use of ska. The lyrics are inventive and silly. On here also are some covers (!) of the Descendents, Sting, Dolly Parton, Desmond Dekker and a few I not sure who they were originally recorded by. If you already own one of their releases, add this to the collection.
