With Lookout Records releasing a compilation of demo material that's all been previously released, it's pretty obvious that the Queers are trying to milk their popularity as much as they can. Most of these songs would make up their legendary Love Songs for the Retarded, but there are a few odds and ends to be found that have never been released on CD before. The snotty, 12-year old Ramones mentality is still there, but the sound quality and production isn't; they are demos, after all. Casual fans are better off just buying Love Songs, but if you're a dedicated fan, add Later Days and Better Lays to the collection.
