AllMusic Review by

A sampler of what the Warped Tour has to offer in its 11th year, 2005 Warped Tour Compilation is an enormous offering. Boasting 50 tracks -- be they rarities or album excerpts -- the disc houses punk's biggest bands like Dropkick Murphys and the Offspring, although somewhat curiously it omits one of the trek's biggest draws (My Chemical Romance). Still, aside from Pennywise's steamrolling anthem "Yell Out," the bulk of the comp's best numbers come from lesser-knowns. The ferocity of Go Betty Go comes in loud and clear on "Saturday," while Street Dogs' punk barker "You Alone" is equally tough. On the flip side, melodic tracks by Fall Out Boy -- who also provide a keeper called "Saturday" -- and Rufio ("Out of Control") are highlights of the emo-based material. Stretching the genre's confines, the reggae-tinged grooves of Bedouin Soundclash (who offer "Gyasi Went Home") are a welcome variation, while Gym Class Heroes' rap-inspired name-check of punk and alt-rock favorites is downright exhilarating. With something for everyone and at a dirt-cheap price of eight bucks or less, 2005 Warped Tour Compilation is well worth grabbing.
