"…this is a document that prompts renewed wonder at one of the most astonishing canons of the entire post-punk era. Twenty-five years ago, nobody had ever heard anything like Throwing Muses. Twenty-five years later, that's still the case."
- Andrew Mueller / Uncut / October 2011
Following the sell-out release of the limited, de-luxe version of Throwing Muses' Anthology compilation, 4AD will be rush-releasing a standard, single disc version on 7th November. This release will not be available in the USA and Canada as 4AD do not have the rights for that territory. Copies of the de-luxe edition are still available from the 4AD store.
Compiled by the band, the 21 track selection eschews most of the singles in favour of personal favourites, and enjoys a non-chronological sequence which makes for interesting juxtapositions and encourages a reassessment of the music.
The standard edition is packaged in a digi-pack with a 20 page booklet and Throwing Muses will be playing a short tour in support of the release.
