Enter The Vaselines
Label: Sub Pop Records
Sub Pop's first try, 1992's The Way of the Vaselines: A Complete History, was good. But Enter the Vaselines is slightly better. A deluxe reissue of its predecessor, this 36-track juggernaut boasts new cover art, a new title, a thoughtful remastering of the group's existing catalog and a smattering of previously unreleased demos and live tracks. Though you could argue Enter the Vaselines is for hardcore twee fans only, it does offer newbies a fuller understanding of these indie pop icons.
