This is a double album: a "Best Of" disc from their albums, and a "b-sides, live tracks and miscellaneous" disc. With similarities to bands like My Bloody Valentine or Radiohead, Starflyer are essentially an alternative pop/rock band with a slow and thoughtful song style. Mainstay Jason Martin holds everything together with his smooth voice and jangly guitars. Some would say the overall sound is dreamy, others would say sombre. Overall it comes across as monotonous and melancholy. Whatever one's opinion, this portrays the Starflyer 59 legacy, appealing mainly to the die-hard fan.
