Tour EP released only in the USA. 'Fitzcarraldo' is incorrectly listed as Track 10.

"An odds-and-ends collection of rare B-sides, recasts of older tracks, and one live number, The Roads Outgrown also serves as a good brief introduction to the latter period of a band that has undergone significant stylistic change over the course of its existence. "Lay Me Down," the opening song, is the keeper of the bunch, with its bottoming-out bass drum rumbling underneath a hopelessly forlorn violin. There's also a worthy cover of Will Oldham's "New Partner" and a soaring live version of "Fitzcarraldo," one of the band's best songs." ~ Jason Nickey, All Music Guide
