Tenth anniversary "upgrade" with six bonus tracks from the undervalued Ben Stiller film which caught the narcissism of Generation X nicely. These include New Order's "Confusion" and The Trammps' "Disco Inferno", with which there's no arguing. Also, less happily, songs from Ethan Hawke and Lisa Loeb, whose "Stay", from here, was one of the biggest US hits of the mid-'90s. Fine flurries, too, from The Posies, Dinosaur Jr, U2 and Crowded House, plus The Knack's utterly brilliant (you know it) "My Sharona".

Tenth anniversary “upgrade” with six bonus tracks from the undervalued Ben Stiller film which caught the narcissism of Generation X nicely. These include New Order’s “Confusion” and The Trammps’ “Disco Inferno”, with which there’s no arguing. Also, less happily, songs from Ethan Hawke and Lisa Loeb, whose “Stay”, from here, was one of the biggest US hits of the mid-’90s. Fine flurries, too, from The Posies, Dinosaur Jr, U2 and Crowded House, plus The Knack’s utterly brilliant (you know it) “My Sharona”. A convenient reissue, as Winona Ryder’s probably nicked your original copy.
