The Posies is an American indie rock band, originally from Bellingham, W. United States, although all band members had moved to Seattle when the band gained prominence. The band's two core members, singers, songwriters and guitarists are Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow. The Posies began as a set of informal home recordings by Stringfellow and Auer, but soon became a full-fledged band. Those early demos were released as the album Failure (1988).

Dream pop, however, is a little different. The term has meant different things to different audiences at different times, because it was always more of a descriptor than a proper genre. We kept playing shows, aided by DJs at college stations WMBR and WHRB, and then the album Today that we recorded in another three-day session with Kramer. We played a lot of shows over the next year, with the Lemonheads, the Pixies, Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore, the Flaming Lips. In July 1988, unable to get an official gig at the New Music Seminar, we played at Nightingale, a bar on Second Avenue in New York.
Since their 1988 debut album, Failure, 1998's studio swansong Success, and 2000's live Before the Iceberg were recorded for indie imprints, none of those tracks appear here. But as an anthology of the Posies' successful and influential years on the Geffen and DGC labels, this collection is faultless. Although they only released three albums for the majors, like any classic pop band, the Posies had a handful of obscure, non-album tracks, five of which are this disc's highlights. Other curiosities, especially "Going, Going, Gone," the band's biggest moneymaker due to its appearance on the million selling Reality Bites soundtrack, flesh out a representative selection of the Posies' best moments.
Even by Dear 23, the band’s major label follow up, the Posies’ sound was solidifying. On nowhere else but Failure can you find the band trying out a Mirror in the Bathroom -style riff (opener Blind Eyes Open ) before swinging into the slow-fast croon and gallop of ‘The Longest Line. As we know, the Posies ultimately took the notion of being next in line for the American power pop throne quite sincerely. Ultimately, though, Success proved to be a conscious capstone album that didn’t manage to stay in place for very long before the new millennium brought a pair of live albums (one electric, one acoustic), followed by a handful of new material in 2001 via the Nice Cheekbones and a P.
