They list 3 of the 5 singles, but only one listing is complete and accurate. They don't have a date for "Impressed Beyond Belief" and they are under the misimpression that "Terminus" is a different band as opposed to the name of a Vehicle Flips song, an error they compound with a bizarre review. In allmusic's favor, they do note that Frank went on to form The Gazetteers, but they don't mention Wimp Factor 14, his prior band. Increasingly, Discogs has overtaken allmusic as my go-to resource.
Let's see how they do with Vehicle Flips. They list all 3 CDs and all 5 singles. Interestingly, the 3rd CD gets a date at allmusic and a date at discogs. The CD itself does have imprinted upon it, but I believe the true release was delayed until That's kind of a toss-up, but I think I'm willing to give allmusic credit for that one.
Interestingly, the bio is nearly if not totally identical at Discogs and Allmusic. I wonder who stole from whom, or if they both got it from the same third source. Rateyourmusic, which started out focusing on ratings has gotten increasing reliable with discography's as well. They do OK, but not great , with Vehicle Flips.

They also do well with the early punk era, but they're pretty spotty with recent as in last 20 years indie rock. But we'll never forget this beauty, which we also named the 23rd best song of the past 15 years.

There are a few versions of the song and the music video kicking about - but whichever one you prefer, we can all agree that it's an ultimate indie anthem.
