We gave it a B+

This 72-song compilation — incorporating TMBG’s first three albums, previously unreleased oddities, and droll autobiographical notes — chronicles the duo’s maturation from resourceful do-it-yourselfers to canny artistes. Their eclectic yet accessible material still sounds fresh, embodying the blend of braininess and whimsicality that’s the key to the pair’s appeal. B+
