While these kinds of collections lie almost outside of the scope of review, it should be noted that they are infinitely more interesting for existing fans.

There's no getting around the fact that June 2009 acquires most of its value, if not all of it, in context with Causers of This and Underneath the Pine.

With 10 tracks clocking in at a shade under a half hour, the album is aimed squarely at preexisting fans curious to see the band's progression
