Agreed, The Circle is good. This is one of my favorite Wipers songs:

Silver Sail's got a great one as well:

I think you're essentially correct. Even if the box set never quantifiably sold well in comparison to similar artists (and for a band that isn't touring, physical media won't), it's been subsequently loaned, burned, uploaded and shared enough to get the music out, which was the point anyway.

God, I love Wipers! Those first four albums rock my world, but it's hard to pick a favourite, because they all have their own sound and something unique and über catchy about them. If I had to choose, it'd be a toss up between Is This Real? (great drumming on this one too) and Youth Of America.

Such a great band. Those first three records are bulletproof. If I absolutely had to choose, I'd probably call Over the Edge my favorite of the trilogy.

Aw man, not crap. I was having a bad evening, so I went for a walk and threw on Over the Edge.
Hell of a way to remember that instead of getting depressed it's better to get pissed off!

The constant attack of the vocals on that title track is second to none.

Greg is a seriously dangerous guitar player. Was listening to OtE the other day and just kept hearing a bunch of stuff that made me go "dafug?"
