Various Hopelessly Devoted to You

This is a killer collection of some of the best on Hopeless and Sub City — packed absolutely full with three discs containing 37 tracks and 28 videos. You could drop band names like bombs around town with this collection in your pocket, with well-known bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Thrice and Guttermouth, and lesser-knowns like Amber Pacific, Ever We Fall, and Melee. It’s mostly along the punk rock and ska vein, but also includes stuff in there to expand your musical horizon and open you up to even more to stuff that’s a little left of your centre. The best part about this collection is that it’s not just the latest single that every band are trying to push; it’s some of the best of what they have to offer from their entire collection, as well as some unreleased tracks to give your ears some of that sweet unknown sugar. Like forbidden fruit, but tastier. (Hopeless)
