Twenty-two songs from various Vagrant Records artists who many are sure to recognize (Alkaline Trio, the Get Up Kids, Face to Face, Saves the Day, etc.), as well as a few that may be new (Audio Learning Center, Viva Death, the New Amsterdams). The great thing about this comp is that many of the tracks are rare or previously unreleased, thus this is sure to attract a lot of listeners, especially if it is sold at a reduced price (as most samplers are). With the popularity of many of the Vagrant Records acts, this is sure to be a quality seller. The entire package showcases a lot of bubbly pop-alternative/pop-punk/pop-whatever acts. For those not familiar with the Vagrant lineup, this is surely a good introduction.
