US/ミシガンのKeith Latinen率いるエモーショナルギターバンド、Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)の既に入手困難になっている音源多数のシングルス+レアトラックス。現存バンドながら90'sエモバンドの多くに在った商業臭の無い人間味溢れる不完全なギターロックの再現は彼らを中心にエモリヴァイバルムーブメントを呼び起こしており、繊細で内向するサウンドタイプ、アルバム以外の音源にも惜しげもなく多くの名曲を投下するDIYインディーロックの特性、なによりも無心で曲に聴き浸ってしまう魅力こそバンドのスペックの高さを物語っている。18曲/70分以上収録の現時点のバンドを総括し得る名曲集。
