Editorial Reviews

Product Description

International release for the London-based electronica/dance duo. This best of gathers the hits of the group, since their 1st album Northern Star in 1999 to the last Lovebox in 2003, plus one new track, 'All of Me'. Highlights include, 'I See You Baby' (Fatboy Slim Remix), 'At the River', 'Superstylin', 'My Friend' and more. BMG. 2004.

Amazon.com

The Best of Groove Armada charts the success of one of the UK's most popular dance acts. Featuring the biggest hits from their last three albums, this anthology of their time on the Jive label is packed with downbeat and upbeat anthems, and an array of music as heard in film, television and radio.

The subdued intro and trombone melody of "Superstylin" opens the collection softly with the now legendary bassline kicking in for a perfect euphoric moment. Other upbeat anthems include the piano house of "If Everybody Looked the Same," the Fatboy Slim mix of Gramma Funk's "I See You Baby" (both of which have been used to sell cars) and the more recent disco hit, "Easy." However, although Tom Findlay and Andy Kato pack dance floors every weekend, it's their downbeat soul that receives most attention, partly due to the "chillout" explosion of 2000 that made "At the River" a classic of the genre. With their last album Lovebox, GA showed a more versatile, band-influenced side with songs like the Status Quo sampling "Purple Haze," the rocky "Madder," and fun-loving ska of "But I Feel Good".

The Best of Groove Armada is a great selection of songs showing the diversity and musical progression of the band, a perfect introduction for the un-initiated and a good collection for those already converted. --Georgina Collins

4.0 out of 5 stars Grooving away? May 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When I see a compilation of hits by a relatively young act, an inevitable feeling of "are they officially done?" invades me. This was how I felt when I learned about this "Best of" Groove Armada, which followed their "Lovebox" album. Sure it's loaded with groovy tunes that will keep you dancing, but coming after an album where they essentially feel as if they're loosing their original edge, it leaves a question lingering in the air: are the boys grooving away?

Hopefully they still have much more to offer, but in the meantime, enjoy this four-star compilation. It's not a five-star, because few compilations are. It only carries three of my favorite GA tracks: "Superstylin'", "If Everybody Looked the Same" and "Chicago".

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked by Groove Armada November 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Just happened to be watching a TV show featuring The Who, this "set-up" band played first. I was instantly hooked by the beat and mix of instrument sounds of "Easy", then really snagged by "Superstlylin'". Just based on hearing these 2 cuts, prompted me to buy this album "in the dark". And Groove Armada did NOT disappoint - I loved nearly every track on the CD. New, exciting, sophisticated - it's hard to believe that all the arrangements are performed by the sane group.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just a casual listener April 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
cI have to admit that I was never wild about Groove Armada. I always felt that Basement Jaxx, Daft Punk, and The Chemical Brothers were far better. Still Groove Armada did manage to put out some solid dance songs such as the reggae-influenced "Superstylin'", my favorite GA song. That simply makes me want to get up and dance. I fell in love with the song again when I saw "Bride & Prejudice" and it was included in the rave on the beach scene. It was what made me buy Groove Armada's best of compilation. I never liked "I See You Baby" (Fatboy Slim Radio Edit) to begin with. I still don't after all these years. The songs on the album for me were a hit or miss. The songs that I did like was "Madder" with the killer guitar riffs, the funky house track "Easy", and the laid back "At the River". I especially dug the piano ballad "Twink Twice". I found it quite soulful. This isn't a bad compilation. I liked most of the songs. There were just a few clunkers that I didn't care for. I thought it was good for this casual listener.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good batch of tunes. March 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
For me, this is not Groove Armada at their absolute best. Sure there are many tracks here which secreted themselves into the mainstream and became utterly addictive, but only some of the tracks are from the outstanding "Vertigo", which truly is the best work these guys have produced.

That is not to do this work down, it is a nice retrospective and these guys work hard to produce original, quirky, chilled and ambiant music and their is no one to hold a candle to them. Lots of imitation bands have sprung up but none can quite cut it like these guys.

If you have never heard them then you should because you are doing them a diservice and denying yourself. Incidently, "Back to mine" and "Northern Star" are crackers too.
