Hehe, the cover is really horrible, but why are you surprised? It's Japan... People are dressing like (pardon) idiots, normal album cover have no chance. The more retarded, the better ;)

Yeah, This is Japan release only.... I think to Dexter & Co. suck the cover and compilation overall... :D Me too! :: But is Japan released only, so it's not an international cd.... :D

I would to say one sentence... I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEW ALBUM!!!! :rolleyes:

Ok. We've been wanting a live album for quite a while. And now the only officially released live songs appear on a compilation CD that would be released exclusively in Japan. This kind of sucks, eh?

Other than that, i like the artwork :)

I bought RFRG in 2008 and had no problem with the website. It was actually someone from the boards that told us about it. I already bought the CD. Just have to wait now. It's too bad that the good things are always released in Japan. But with internet and paypal there is nothing we cannot have.

I'm very happy with the CD, it's something I've been waiting for a long time now. I only think that it should be a 2 CD thing. One for live tracks and one only for b-sides (with all of them). But it's something, so... I can't complain..

I thought that cover was a joke the first time I saw it. I'm shocked to know that's the actual cover. Butt ugly.

Cool to have some live songs though.

This is a good way to promote their other songs to the Japanese fan base. I'm sure they'll put out an EP for America/UK/Canada someday.

really cool idea.I would also like to see live cd of each show they do, like pearl jam did some years ago

Yeah, I'm sure there will be an American album sometime between now and after they decide to stop making albums. Theres too much material that's been released without appearing on an album, and too many unreleased songs to be wasted on this. This appears to be primarily a live album with a few covers thrown in. Still, the artwork rocks. I particularly like the return to the oldstyle logo.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. This is pretty rad, but it does seem like wasted potential if they don't do something similar to this on a worldwide release someday. Something like Pearl Jam's Lost Dogs, 33 songs on a double-album, all but a couple songs were original material, too. That's definitely getting your money's worth right there.

I'd say that some sort of rarities album is inevitably going to be released by the band in the rest of the world, at some point. Even though they don't have a lot of proper bsides and Dexter's stated that the band likes to rework outtakes into new songs, there's still plenty of material to work with.

25$! Damn. I downloaded all the songs off it on offspring.bootlegs because I wanted all the offspring stuff I didn't have. I will Probably pay for it though.

I brought the album yesterday from cdjapan, now it is just a matter of waiting for the release date. It is going to be cool to have the b-sides in better quality, however it is a pity that the album doesn't include all of them.

52 Girls, the older version of Hey Joe, Bloodstains, Totalimmortal, One Hundred Punks, I Wanna Be Sedated, acoustic Defy You... And I'm sure there are more that are not included.

I think the artwork is pretty wicked, but a bit too light and bright
but at the bright side it's something that cathches your eye when you're in the shop
and the elephant should have green shades not yellow :)
but I'm glad it's not traditional Japanese manga actually (no offense)

I think the tracklist is actually pretty nice, it's well mixed and has got a little something from everything
I think it would be a good cd to introduce someone to the offspring who doesn't know much about punk and rock music
and to show them all the "different genres" the offspring has

but twice Pretty Fly?

EDIT: but the purple bird is freakin' awesome, gonna use that as my new avater ... my idea!!!
