Been Where? Did What? is a collection of early demos, outtakes, and rarities from Tilt. Compared to most of the Fat Wreck Chords acts, the tough yet mature female vocals contrast sharply. The things that are not different are the lots of pop hooks and melodic punk anthems. Some of the stuff on here is really nifty, including the cover of "Where in the World Is Carmen San Diego" and "Theme From the Dukes of Hazzard" but, after a time, the female vocals aren't so sweet and instead become increasingly annoying. Much of the material starts to run together, lacking the variety and creativity needed to keep the listener attentive. It seems that, with over 20 tracks of material, one would have to be a die-hard Tilt fan to truly appreciate all of this.
