Review: Toad the Wet Sprocket Remasters the Hits, Releases New Song

By Brent Thompson

Few bands have matched the impressive run of Toad the Wet Sprocket’s 1990s recorded output. The quartet’s 1991 release, Fear, plays like a self-contained greatest hits album thanks to tracks including “All I Want,” “Walk on the Ocean” and “I Will Not Take These Things For Granted.” Coinciding with the band’s current tour, Toad has released All You Want, a remastered greatest hits collection that includes a new track, “Best of Me.” In addition to the aforementioned Fear tracks, radio staples including “Good Intentions,” Come Down” and “Something’s Always Wrong” are found here as well. Toad still continues to record and tour regularly and the music has held up well – there is no time-stamp on this catalog and that’s a great thing for listeners.
