But also note that this compilation proves the enduring depth and strength of the group's routine, just like International Superhits! did. Kicking off with the one-two punch of the singsongy "Suffocate" and the sharply riffing "Desensitized," the short 15-cut disc plows through bright novelty numbers -- from spy-flick shtick to faux ranchero to Kinks and Ramones covers -- alternated with tunes so catchy and cutting, they easily could have been A-sides. Like the underappreciated Warning, it ends up a tribute to the group's broad pop-punk roots, making it both more conceptual and less conceited than Odds and Sods. Talk about neat.
