This 18-song collection features out-of-print fan favorites from their early years, well-known songs from many compilation projects and soundtracks, and their recent breakthrough radio hits, plus 3 new songs never heard before!
It may seem curious to the casual music observer that Texas-based pop band Sixpence None The Richer, who had one big hit in "Kiss Me" and one semi-hit with their version of the Las
"There She Goes" would have enough material to release a greatest hits collection in full album form as opposed to, say, an EP. While both tracks are included here ("Kiss Me", in fact, shows up twice), other songs culled from the band's archive, as well as contributions from assorted compilations, provide plenty more listening pleasure for Sixpence fans as Leigh Nash's sleepy vocals complement catchy hook-driven melodies in slickly produced studio arrangements. Some of the brighter spots on the record are actually covers of other artists' greatest hits that force Sixpence None The Richer out of their comfort zone and into more intriguing territory, such as on Crowded House's
"Don't Dream It's Over" and ABBA's
"Dancing Queen". Three previously unreleased songs are also included. --John Moe
