Tones On Tail



Beggars Banquet
Released 7 April 1998

Everything! is a compilation album by Tones on Tail, which was released in 1998 as a double CD. The first disc features the original Pop album, while the second disc collects the Burning Skies and Tones on Tail EPs, along with the "Lions", "Christian Says", "There's Only One" and "Performance" singles.

Writing a review for Allmusic, critic Ned Raggett said that the need for a complete compilation of Tones on Tail work "was long overdue". Describing the group's underground hit "Go!", he said: "It remains a wonderful, atypical dancefloor smash, with Ash's loopy 'ya-ya' chorus, Haskins' nutty percussion patterns, Campling's great fuzz bassline, and more all coming together in weird and fun ways." Referring to the "Twist"/"Go!" single, James Muretich of The Calgary Herald said: "The guitar lines are dark and playful, a strange but effective combination." Richard Williams of The Michigan Daily said: "Pop attends to a myriad of textures. Most of them poking sinister fun at the conventions of pop music." Ned Raggett described Pop as "an impressive, wide-ranging effort collaging a range of influences into an inspired, often unpredictable experience."
