AllMusic Review by

Instinct Records August CD Sampler is a brief introduction to some of the label's major projects of summer 2002. Gordon Gano issued his first ever solo album after some 20 years with the Violent Femmes. Instinct bows to the quirky songwriter by including three top songs from his Hitting the Ground debut, most notably his duet with PJ Harvey on the title track. The sweet lo-fi outfit Future Bible Heroes is also represented with three charming selections from the group's first Instinct release, Eternal Youth, and Rasputina is featured as well. The cello-driven experimental trio gained cred with the playful yet complex album Cabin Fever, and Instinct celebrates the band's addition to the family.
