04/17/2012 Millencolin 'The Melancholy...
The Melancholy Collection
RARE AS HELL! This album consists of unreleased tracks, drawn from Millencolin's first two EP's, all the single B-sides and songs recorded only for compilations. With amazing covers of songs like "Coolidge" by The Descendents, "Knowledge" by Operation Ivy and ŝ-5," the Dolly Parton classic! If you're a Millencolin fan, then you scored! If you're not a Millencolin fan, this isn't a great place to start unless you're trying to impress a die-hard Millencolin fan!
