For a posthumous odds-and-ends collection, Vitreous Humor's Posthumous is remarkably incomplete. It fails to include any of the three songs from the band's debut single, Harbor, as well as other studio recordings. But that's really the only complaint one could make about Posthumous -- that there's not enough of it. While not particularly cohesive, almost all of the songs are striking. Particular mention should go to opening track "My Midget," a slow-burning, time-changing rocker, as well as the excellent "Science Has No Soul," which showcases lyricist Danny Pound's dark sense of humor. Also included is a bonus track by the Regrets ("Good Things Come to Those in Small Packages"), the band formed in the wake of Vitreous Humor, which had already broken up by the time Posthumous was released.
