A 14-track collection of unreleased and rare tracks recorded circa 2009 - 2015 packs a short yet sweet time yet again, lasting no more than a minute (or two), of power pop/indie rock tracks brimming of immense talent and passion. It does feel unfinished yet satisfying at the same time.
This rarities collection from one of my favourite power pop/indie rock musicians has some brief but entertaining moments, but despite having highlights, it doesn't compare to his more realised projects. Molina's shortcomings in his musical styles also begin to appear, as a lot of the riffs and instrumental bridges sound very similar to previously released tracks.
