Review/Comments/Thoughts:
I originally was looking for a greatest hits cd or some collection but I stumbled on this instead and it was a good price so I got it. What really got me hooked on this band was their concert they did in Central Park in New York City it was on PPV as a freeview. It got me hooked on alot of their stuff. Favorites include Lips are Sealed, We Got the Beat, Automatic, Failing Fast

Review/Comments/Thoughts:
For a Reunion/Comeback album this is a very strong effort. The Go-Gos really rocked this album hard. Id even go as far and classify this as a Hard Rock album. Not Velvet Revolver/Aerosmith Hard Rock but it's a hard rock album nonetheless. The aforementioned concert in NYC was to promote this album they played alot of songs from it that got me really hooked on this band. In fact as of 5/2011 they are playing locally on a tour and I would so love to go. Stupid Unemployment. Favorites include Unforgiven, Apology, Sonic Superslide, Kissing Asphalt, Stuck In My Car, and La-La Land
