A great collection and celebration of this fine single, "We Have Explosive" was my introductory song to the ever-changed world of FSOL, but this single could have been a little more structured (or varied) with its remixes than what it had to offer. All in all, I like 5/9 of the CD, which isn't bad.

The 1st and 9th tracks are essentially the way we've always heard the song, almost like a warning to all listeners of the potential explosion to occur. The Pt. 3 and Pt. 5 are very interesting, not borrowing a thing from the original track, and making very catchy melodies (Pt. 3) and stoned astronaut beats (Pt. 5) over ambience. The best remix IMO is the oil dub version, going into 3 separate movements with random sax and harmonica in one, jazzy ambience in the next, and breaks into the faster drums we love from the song in the last, all while featuring samples of the song sped up a tad.

This was a hard find, but its around. I recommend it to fans of the song entirely.
