Smash Mouth is on a new label, and what better way to celebrate this than by releasing a sub-par collection of unreleased early songs and three songs from their Interscope debut Fush Yu Mang.
Some fans of the band might enjoy this rough sounding collection. But those who only know Smash Mouth for their radio friendly hits like "All Star" and "Walking on the Sun" should steer clear of The East Bay Sessions. The collection is reminiscent of London Calling by The Clash, but in a bad way. These poorly arranged ska/punk songs miss the mark by miles.
