It's funny how most of The Residents' never-released stuff manages to be so much better than some of their actual releases. Residue is the first of The Residents' more-than-excellent unreleased song compilations.

The album starts off with "The Sleeper", one of the most badass Residents tunes. "Whoopy Snorp", originally appearing on the Blorp Esette record, is a bit like "Loser=Weed" in that it sounds crazy and confusing.

"Kamakazi Lady" sounds freaking awesome. It's from The Residents' unreleased Baby Sex album. I wish they'd release the whole thing in good quality. I know they can, since they've released other tracks from it in other compilations.

"Boy in Love", while nice and good-sounding, doesn't really catch my attention. It also appeared in The Residents' 30th anniversary record, Petting Zoo.

"Anvil Forest", "Scent of Mint" and "Open Up" were supposed to be in The Tunes of Two Cities, but they were left out because there wasn't room for them. The CD release of that album does contain those tracks in the order they were supposed to be played.

"Diskomo" is a remix of the 8-minute-long original version, and it does sound... nice, I guess. I prefer the original.

Meanwhile, the new version of "Jailhouse Rock" is one thousand times better than the original, and it's one of my favorite Residents tracks. There's also the original, 3-minute version of "Ups & Downs", from The Commercial Album. Again, it sounds one thousand times better. "Saint Nix" makes me want to bounce around the room.

Residue Deux also has some bonus tracks, so that means more unreleased stuff! There's the single version of "From the Plains to Mexico", two tracks from the Daydream B-Liver U-WEB compilation, and we also get to hear The Replacement and "Safety is a Cootie Wootie" in their entirety.

Overall, this is a perfect compilation, just like all of their unreleased material. Of course, being that they are unreleased, I wouldn't recommend it for first-time listeners, as they may have no idea of what's going on in this record.
