Like all bands, Panasonic have good moments, and lesser good moments. This "X" compilation is a very weird one because it is by far NOT a best-of compilation... Far from it, actually. Yet, it isn't a compilation of their worst moments either. Rather, it is a collection of their typical, more "so-so" tracks from various releases. For example, the piece they took from their "B" EP is what I consider to be the weakest track off that EP, but that's just my personnal tastes. I wouldn't call this one a "must have" for Panasonic fans, but there is an unreleased piece, the track "O", which is a preview of their collaboration with Neubauten's F. M. "Mufty" Einheit under the band name VVE. Still, a very saught-after and rare collectible, a great addition to any Panasonic collector out there.
