There's certainly a number of things to discuss when bringing up Goldfinger. While the band is partially responsible for the mid-90's third wave ska revival explosion, they also put out Goldfinger, widely considered one of the top albums of its genre. But like many of their peers (Less Than Jake, the Suicide Machines, Reel Big Fish), the band slowly alienated a good portion of their fanbase with releases focusing a fair deal more on punk-pop / pop-rock as time passed. They achieved a second wave of fame in one of the least credible ways possible (a cover), and then found front-man John Feldmann taking advantage of their popularity to spread his vegan beliefs. It's been a mildly bizzarre journey with its healthy share of backlash. Five full-lengths later the band is given the greatest hits treatment in the form of a "Best Of" compilation CD and DVD.

The Best Of Goldfinger, while a bit untimely and suspiciously released barely a month after the band's latest proper full-length, Disconnection Notice, is a mostly complete package, the CD version containing 17 tracks (13 "hits," 1 previously unreleased, 3 movie soundtrack cuts) and a DVD with all the band's music videos and a few previously unreleased live videos from 2003 performances at the House of Blues. So while this purchase is questionable for the aforementioned who were alienated about halfway through the band's catalog, it's essential for completists and a likely buy for lifelong fans.

While void of tracks from Disconnection Notice, the chronological track listing draws fairly equally from the rest of Goldfinger's albums. Goldfinger provides three, Hang-Ups three, the band's covers EP, Darrin's Coconut Ass: Live one, Stomping Ground four, and Open Your Eyes three. "The Innocent," the band's post-9/11, MP3.com-only tribute and collaboration with Mest and Good Charlotte is sure to elicit some groans from listeners, while the more NOFX-esque "Hopeless" is pretty interesting, and closer "Rio" a raw throwback with some funky keyboards and upstroke-laced chorus. "Here In Your Bedroom" is a nicely modest and more ska-influenced opener for the disc, and its fellow album tracks here should be enough to stir up nostalgia for anyone who had their interest in the band long stripped.

The DVD contains a total of 8 videos, with the only real standouts including the Alien spoof of "This Lonely Place" and the subject of incest and the corporate marketing of the meat and tobacco industry in "Open Your Eyes" (the latter is honestly the most well put together and shot video of the bunch). While shrewdly thrown together is ten minutes of relatively throwaway "bonus footage" as well, the two live videos for "Spokesman" and "Stay" are well-shot with crystal clear audio.

While The Best Of... is certainly a healthy package for Goldfinger fans, the only issue left deciding is how much of a Goldfinger fan you actually still are.

"Goldfinger was never good live. they always fuck up and aside from that
john fledman already destroyed the band"

Dude...Even though their music sucks now...Goldfinger are still an amazing band to see live. They have a lot of energy. And their drummer is amazing to watch...not just his drumming, but his crazy antics. He's the only reason I still go see them play.

And yeah...John has ruined that band. He doesn't seem to get that though. They should just pack it in.

Goldfinger was never good live
they always fuck up and aside from that

EMOHOLOCAUST (May 19, 2005)

Dont you hate it when you like a band, and then they became famous and all over the mtv,media and shit and then your lame ass neighbor started getting into them too and what's worst he started singing along to it early in the morning and it bugs you waking up to it, it does happen to me
i have this beaner neighbors back then and i have the stupide sublime cd like 2 years before brad died and then i use to play it so loud in the day and my beaner neighbor asked what the hell am i listening to and i said sublime and the following week he started playing that dman same cd which kinda pisses me off and well i think i kinda lost my cool factor.
so the moral of the story: suck my dick/eat my poop yOU

RBF's newest is much more like their old stuff, more than Cheer Up was, Less Than Jake's new songs sound very much like something off of Losing Streak, and a Match and Some Gasoline is a like a mix between Destruction By Defintion and Battle Hymns.

The RBF statement is arguable, and they did have a period where it could very much be said that they were a basic pop-rock outfit.

Less Than Jake haven't put those songs to record, yet.

Suicide Machines definitely had their more overtly poppy period. I'm not talking about A Match... in this context.

LTJ played 2 new songs at their recent show in cleveland and YES they did sound like rockview/losing streak songs. both had ska verses.

I don't understand why the reviewer put LTJ, RBF, the Suicide Machines in with Goldfinger. RBF's newest is much more like their old stuff, more than Cheer Up was, Less Than Jake's new songs sound very much like something off of Losing Streak, and a Match and Some Gasoline is a like a mix between Destruction By Defintion and Battle Hymns. Goldfinger is the only one that really plays pop-punk.

ironically, fat mike became a vegetarian in 1999 or 2000...and has openly admitted the hypocrisy of 'vegetarian mumbo jumbo' and apologized...funny.

thats most peoples gripes w/ nofx...theyr'e just too sarcastic and not verbose (if thats the word i'm lookin for) to pull off political punk. it just comes off as well intentioned but not educated. 'war on errorism' was just an overkill. 'the decline' pulled off political views much more subtely and better. man the decline is good

"well left wing politics are certainly more wide spread in the punk/emo/hardcore/whatever community than is veganism. while being a vegan is certainly accepted in these circles, its not as wide spread, and thus, being preached to about it seems to stand out mroe than 'fuck bush's imperialism' cuz A. 90% of punks are liberal and agree while i'd say maybe 10% of punks are vegan... see what i mean?"

But why preach to the choir?
Thats what so many of these bands are doing these days. The vast majority of their fans already agree with them, so its safe to do what they're doing.
What John does, on the other hand, takes guts. And I respect him for that. Look at how much shit he gets from people.

"I've heard from a few people that he hated the direction their albums went in after Hang-Ups because he's a huge punk rock fan...but he refused to quit in the hopes that they'd eventually go back to their original sound."

This score is for: As far as I've heard from my buddy Matt who goes on their forums..

but i agree with SkolarX, goldfinger was never very good, but they were decently known, so when you told people that you liked ska, they assumed you like goldfinger, & that made me want to take a lye-shower.

I don't go up to my friends who don't lift and get in their face and preach to them about hte benefits of working out. if they asked me, then fine, i'd tell them whatever info they want. just like if i want to try being a vegan , i'll ask about it. don't shove it in my face and yell at me to 'wake up wake up!!!' like feldman does. fuck you. you wake up you fat fuck, and go to the gym.

also its the source...its one thing for a political band like rise against to 'preach' to me or propaghandi...when it comes from john feldman and a band like goldfinger, it just seems so much more cocky, condescending and trite.

and btw, there ARE a lot of people who bitch about politics in music....see the review for the last nofx album for evidence...there is many a 'nofx shouldnt preach politics cuz fat mike is dumb as dirt' posts in response to their last album and its political overtones. the same goes for other poli-punk bands. i mena really, there are just as many punk music fans who hate anti-flag as there are those who love them

hope that cleared things up

someone please explain to me why its ok for other bands to preach about politics (mostly left-wing) in over half their songs, but its not ok for goldfinger to have one or two songs about veganism? whats the difference?

Anonymous (May 16, 2005)

oh and 'stomping ground' despite being ska less (although the verses to 'carry on' are kinda ska tinged) is still worlds better than 'disconnection notice' which has like 3 good songs on it. throwing 2 ska songs (one of which has that dumb bitch talking about animals the whole time over it) on their new album does not redeem them.

rbf came back much stronger after the spotty 'cheer up' (which is still better than the last 2 goldfinger albums) w/ 'we're not happy til your not happy' which is a true return to form (even if the production is very raw)

paul

Anonymous (May 16, 2005)

yea, the fact is, Feldman still had that huge rant in the liner notes about being a vegan and it was very condecending (in the album 'open your eyes'). i remember a line along the lines of 'you can learn more in the time it takes you to watch the real world or whatever you retarded kids do w/ your time instead of learning how sick you are for eating animals'. he also let those politics directly influence a few songs that also had condescending themes (you can't tell me 'open your eyes' the song isn't directly preachy and rude, cmon 'a gun to the head just so you can be fed'? fuckin guilt trip and stupid).

"As for his vegan preaching, he only made mention of being a vegan during the last song of the encore, Fuck Ted Nugent. And to anyone who's ever heard the song before they would understand why"

Well yeah, it's part of what's made them so massively unliked by their old fanbase, of course he cut most of that shit out, but the label stuck.

This score is for a possible Best of Goldfinger where half the songs are from the s/t, there's a decent selection from Hang-ups, and just one or two apiece from each release since then. Oh and scratch that 9/11 song with Good Charlotte and Mest too.

The ONLY reason Brian pretends he is vegan is because he is a fucking pussy who is afraid of losing his job...so he sucks up to John and pretends to be vegan. A friend of a friend of mine was on the road with them and saw him eating stuff that had milk and egg products ALL the time. And when he was asked about it he said..."please don't tell John." Pussy.

I believe I've said this before but fuck Ingrid Newkirk and her extremist views. There's plenty of other ways to support treating animals more humanely than being associated with a group with such ridiculous outlooks as PETA.

Also my friend saw Goldfinger headlining live a couple years back and he said John Feldmann preached so much "think of the animals" talk between the songs that their own fans started to heckle him about it and the album booklet for "open your eyes" was filled with vegan propaganda. Just because they only dedicate one or two songs to it doesn't mean they aren't preaching a little excessively.

CoD (May 14, 2005)

Heh. The song only "hinted" at his vegan views? It had Ingrid fuckin' Newkirk on it. That song wouldn't have been so bad if I didn't have to hear her dumbass talking the entire time.

iheartadam (May 14, 2005)

Don't worry guys, I'm here to translate that last comment. Here goes:

"I love Copeland. Everything else is unimportant. I suck."

fallingupwards84 (May 14, 2005)

"But the only one in Goldfinger who is vegan is John."

wrong. Brian, the guitarist, is vegan.

their newest album only had one song on it that even hinted that factory farming is cruel (which it is), so i would hardly call that "preaching".

let's see.. one song on the new goldfinger cd is about veganism, while more than half of the songs on most punk albums coming out today are political. yet i dont hear nearly as many people whining about how bands like Bad Religion are constantly "preaching" and alienating their fans.
grow up. if you dont agree with the lyrics, then big deal. its not the end of the world.

and to the people who said GF completely abandoned their ska roots - Disconnection Notice was the first album since Hang-Ups that had horns in it. not that horns automatically qualify a song for being ska, but its more than what Stomping Ground had.

Meat is bad for you or something. And they have to kill animals in a bad way to get you that meat.

But the only one in Goldfinger who is vegan is John. It's his beliefs that he's pushing on people. As far as I've heard from my buddy Matt who goes on their forums...the guitar player is a vegetarian, and the bass player eats meat and the drummer only eats chicken or something like that.

The s/t is a damn good fun album, I listened to it all the time for my first few years of high school. Since then this band has been on a steady decline (hang-ups - good; ep - pretty good; stomping ground - ok; open your eyes - poor; that new one - I dunno, the mp3s and losing the logo made this band way too dead to me to bother checking it out)

Anyway the allotment of songs is all wrong although it's hard to blame them for refusing to admit they've gotten progressively worse. I find it funny that this album even exists.

Don't blame anything Goldfinger does on the rest of the band. Blame it all on John Feldmann. He runs that band like a dictator. It's his way or no way. The other members either do what he says...or they quit. Hence their first bass player and guitar player quitting. The other band members are just innocent bystanders. This band will break up...and it will be very soon...and it will be all Feldmann's fault. Don't hate the other three members for the shitty music Goldfinger now puts out....they have absolutely no choice in the matter.
