Including the band's first three albums in their entirety, These Things also throws in their early 2000s MP3 EPs, along with singles, remixes and (seven of the ten tracks from) Offgrid:Offline. For stretches, this unconventional sequencing methodology works well, shuffling around some of their weaker late-career material, while in other areas, it falls flat (really, who wants to hear 12 spoken word tracks in a row?).
Complete with extensive liner notes featuring photographs of the group from member Karn David, alongside original reviews and articles from their heyday, These Things is a sweet gift to fans of a band who have always, and will always, do things their own way. (Mute)
