The A-side of the I'll Take My Chances single is Never Got Hip's highest moment, a sensational post-punk pop killer. Not a bad place to start!! The first non-LP B-side, "The Undertow," is a harrowing, Nirvana-esque, punishing noise-hardcore-punk speed-slasher that's too well-recorded not to jolt, whereas "Careening" is the contrary throb-slowcore side with drifting, wan keyboard, once again rendered so well. The disc also comes with a Mac- and PC-compatible video for "Reviver Gene."
