It includes two new songs "Hallelujah" and "Make It Right" (from the touring EP Kickstarter and Nothing Without You) and covers of Radiohead's "Karma Police" and of Brand New's "Tautou", where the band has created an extended version for the song.

"Seanholio" from Cooltry wrote: "I usually wouldn’t review a rarities/b sides album BUT The Narrative are a special case. What other band would take the time out of their busy schedule to video chat with not just 1 but over 40 of their fans who helped fund their tour. During this video chat Vocalist/Keys player Suzie Zeldin mentioned that whilst they are working hard on their follow up to their debut self titled album they didn’t realize how this album is more than just a b sides album. It has some brand new songs, it has alternate versions and it has covers. It is safe to say that this is a decent and proper release for 2012".
