Fueled by Ramen has been releasing records for over six years, and their style of emotional and melodic punk was very much in vogue in the early 2000s. This collection gathers together 18 tracks and features some rare and unreleased tracks by bands like The Stereo, Frodus, Recover, and Whippersnapper, and demo versions of songs from upcoming Fueled by Ramen releases by the Pietasters, Jersey, the AEffect, and The20goto10. As a bonus, the bands all include their favorite Ramen recipes. Yum yummy! The disc is a cheaply priced entry to the Ramen sound that is great for beginners, and, thanks to the inclusion of interesting rarities, a nice pick-up for fans of the label.
