Strangely, Polysics or Die!!!! Vista
varies drastically from Polysics
' earlier greatest-hits record, Polysics or Die!!!
Only six songs from the previous disc make the cut of the new MySpace Records release, further proving that choosing a list of Polysics
' best singles is no easy task. That said, this compilation seems to be better thought out and serves as an excellent introduction to the poppier side of the band, despite the omission of some of their finest songs, most notably "XCT" from Neu
. This disc may also be the only chance for fans outside of Japan to get the new songs "Electric Surfing," "I My Me Mine," "You-You-You," and "Catch on Everywhere" unless they were to buy Karate House
as an import. For newbies wishing to learn about the group's sound, this is the perfect starting point, but it barely scratches the surface of their ten years of material.
