New Tragically Hip: "No Threat"

The Tragically Hip's new box set, Hipeponymous, includes two CDs, called "Yer Favourites"; with 37 songs chosen by fans and two new songs. "The New Maybe" is a quiet, deliberately-paced love song ("maybe it's the things that we don't say... maybe love is the new maybe"). It's good, but I'm going with the weirder, more raucous new song, "No Threat" ("It's just me, tearing spiderwebs." Of course it is).

Also in the box set are two DVDs. The first is That Night in Toronto, a a Film by Pierre Franois Lamoureux of the Hip's Toronto Air Canada Centre November 2004 concert filmed in High Defenition, and the second includes all of the Hip's 23 videos, Macroscopic" a 50-minute film directed by Christopher Mills, and "11 visual vignettes set to new original scores from The Tragically Hip". A 48-page book is also included with the set.
