Q: Good Starting Point Album-Wise For The Misfits Novice?
A: Can’t go wrong with Collection, a.k.a. Collection 1, a.k.a. Misfits (the comp’s actual legal title). Behind that yellow and black cover is the perfect smattering of Misfits classics from the band’s original run. Now, if you’re not into the compilation scene and are asking me where to start with the real chronological Misfits albums, why not go with Static Age, the very first? I think it has the most unique flavor or atmosphere of the whole lot. If I were being exiled to Elba for war crimes that’s the disc I’d take with me.
