SCREECHING WEASEL: Television City Dream: CD

The latest in the series of reissues of the entire catalog of the well-known Chicago pop punk band. I feel in this day and age, this is like an issue of MRR—you’ll either get it blindly/loyally, or just dismiss it. If you happen to be curious and are checking the band out for the first time, I’d recommend something else like one of their old Lookout albums like My Brain Hurts. On a side note, there’s bonus tracks mixed in throughout this, claiming “re-sequenced for 2010, making it the classic Weasel record it always threatened to be!” I guess it’s like a directors cut (though I partially wonder why the songs where cut in the first place) which I genuinely can’t decide if I like or not.
