Man they love to hate
Not as good as "Fly On The Wall" but spanning deeper into Stan's career "Songs" leaves out some of my early favorites. The entire "Mosquitos" is highly recommended. More of a story teller than a pop artist Stan writes a screenplay before he begins an album and then puts the songs together. This album takes some "scenes" from some of his albums and creates a highlight reel. Oh, and yes I was there when WOV played the Masque and the entire LA circuit. Sorely miss the days of Suburban Lawns, WOV, X and the entire scene. I believe it was more the Knack's fault than Stan's that the energy was watered down but I still understand Mc's point of view!
