One thing you can say about this is that it does what it says on the box. There are in fact nearly 70 songs in this boxset, all of them having to do with love in one way or another. These songs range from the stupid ("Punk Love") to the whimsical ("I Think I Need A New Heart, and "The Luckiest Guy On The Lower East Side") to the heartbreaking ("All My Little Words") to the gorgeous ("Busby Berkeley Dreams"). It's a bit exhausting to work your way through it end to end, but the experience is totally and utterly worth the (lack of) effort.
