"Three Cheers For Waterloo" with its gorgeous horn parts, background vocals provided by former Lassie Foundation member Frank Lenz, two guitar solos, and dazzling vocal melodies. The hard to find 7' vinyl version of "Promise Ring" finally shows up on CD, a tad rougher but more energetic than its original CD version (on El Rey). And, "We're The Number Ones", a song heavy on melody and great chord progressions, previously unheard anywhere, also makes an appearance. Finally, after the studio tracks, a five song love collection rounds out Disc Two. The songs on the live portion come exclusively from the Face Your Fun era, and benefit from the energy and enthusiasm of the band. For instance, "Don't Stop Your Heart" just shimmers with intensity as the band launches into a spirited fury behind the upfront vocals of Everett. It's appropriate, then, that the disc also features a high quality video, accessible by computer, in the form of live concert footage of "Saturday Night."This video gives fans one last glimpse of the band in action, as Everett struts around in a fake-tuxedo t-shirt while the band plays on.
Through and Through is often a mind-boggling and ear-caressing look at a supremely talented band throughout their career. From the shoegaze years of California, to the neo-80's pop vibe of Face Your Fun and beyond, The Lassie Foundation consistently showed us how to party, live, dream, flirt, and yes, rock. Through and Through captures the spirit of this fascinating band, and is a fitting and classy gift to both long-time and new fans.
