Biography

2013 marks the 25th anniversary of a certain young band from Glasgow’s first public concert.

That night in March 1988, nobody looking towards the stage of Dundee University students’ union would have been any the wiser about the unknown and unsigned vision before them. A female-fronted quartet with a twangy, gang-like swagger harking back to the pout and punch of Blondie and ... Read more in Amazon's Texas Store

Editorial Reviews

The best of the Scottish band on one volume that includes the single "In Demand" (produced and co-written by Dallas Austin) along with other previously unreleased tracks. The group re-recorded some tunes like "So In Love With You", which features the return of original member Craig Armstrong. Gregg Alexander (of New Radicals fame) collaborated on "My Inner Smile".

Sharleen Spiteri has a fantastic voice!!!!
Roby Cian
Greatest Hits by Texas is best for those who enjoy 90’s/early 2000’s pop music with hints of indie rock and dance melodies.

Sharleen Spiteri, the lead singer of Scottish band Texas, has said in interviews that she regrets the name of the band. That if she could go back and change it, she would. The name of the band IS very confusing for Americans, who assume that the band is country. And yes, Texas cleverly pays homage to this with steel guitars in a few of their songs. But the band is not a country band. It is a sophisticated pop-rock sound that has lush melodies and makes the most of the lead singer's smokey voice.
The song 'I Don't Want a Lover' incredibly went to Number 1 twice on the UK charts. The feat was even greater due to the fact that there was a 10 year span between the first and the second ride to the number 1 spot and they had not changed a thing! It was not a remix. This was actually a UK record
I highly recommend this album to anyone who loves strong female vocals. I find myself listening to the album all the time.

Ooh, I've reviewed their two previous albums and given each of them glowing reviews & 5 stars ratings. Wonder what I'll give this one? Yeah, just in case you hadn't noticed, I'm biased. It's foolish to suggest I'm not. I am a Texanite. I am in love with Sharleen. I hate Rickman for even getting close to her (watch the video for In Demand to see why). So reviewing this album is like deciding whether water was a good invention. In short...yes, Yes and YES!!!
If you've never heard Texas before then consider this album you're new education in the ways of genius. If by So in Love With You you haven't been wondering why you've never heard of them before then you're either A: American or B: Stupid. There's no doubt that the album has been made to help them crack America (they've admitted as much) but who's complaining. This is Texas gold. It's them removed of the slack that occasionally gets into any album, no matter the artist. And Texas without slack is truly a thing to behold.
I can't begin to describe the majesty on display here. The Motown cool of Black Eyed Boy. The chilling beauty of Put Your Arms Around Me. The bluesy rock of I Don't Need A Lover. The sheer driving power of Halo. The quiet longing of Say What You Want. STOP!!! Stop before you recite the track listing! Calm down! Breathe. That's better. I was saying...show me a bad track. Point it out to me. Tell me where Sharleen's voice falters. Where Ally's guitar work is wrong. Where the lyrics are banal pap. You can't, can you. That's because they don't. These are classic tracks most would sell their mothers for.
And then there's the new material. Wow. If this is an indication of where the new album is going I'd like to pre-order it now thank you very much.

Texas are easily Scotland's finest band, and with frontwoman Sharleen Spiteri on vocals it's not hard to see why. Their unique blend of pop rock has seen them stay ahead of the game for more than 15 years now, half of which have been spent in the limelight of the charts, establishing them amongst the multi-million selling album elite. 1997's "White On Blonde" was the album that broke them into the mainstream and spawned five UK Top 10 smash hits. 1999's "The Hush" followed this up in grand style with more overwhelming sales and critical praise.
So as 2000 drew to a close Texas decided to release "The Greatest Hits," an essential collection of their finest work from the last 11 years. The album was marketed as essential indeed, and the British public seemed to agree; The Greatest Hits became a multi-million selling No.1 smash hit collection over the Christmas period in 2000 in the UK, even managing to knock the Beatles' "1" from the top spot! What this collection provides (apart from some of the best mature pop songs from the past fifteen years) is proof undeniable the power of Texas and their staying power - believe me when I say they'll be around for years to come.
"I Don't Want A Lover," the band's first ever single starts off the collection in fine form. The country-tinged rock anthem was a Top 10 hit for the band back in 1989 and was their first and last for 8 years! "In Demand" was a new song recorded especially for this album, and the result is one of Texas' most popular songs to date. The song is a mid-tempo classic with a real sing-a-long chorus. "Say What You Want" is perhaps the most popular Texas song to date, and it's not hard to see why.

Forget Kylie, forget Dannii, forget Sophie. TEXAS RULES!!! Sharleen Spiteri is one cool chick! All those other little pop pretenders can only wish thay had what she has. Beautiful, TRULY talented, she has a voice for the ages. She can be coy one moment, seductive siren the next. It truly is a crime this group isn't well-known here is the States. They define what high-quality pop and rock music is. You try and pretend "Inner Smile" isn't as catchy (even more so) as "Can't Get You Out Of My Head". You can't! "Insane" draws you in with its haunting melody. I simply love that string section on the bridge. "In Demand" is a sassy little song. Watch the video and you'll see that a truly sexy woman looks like. "In Our Lifetime" is one of my favorite songs. I first heard it in 1999 when their album "The Hush" was released, and I still listen to it over and over. What a funky bass line! Sharleen's voice is amazing, singing all the highs and lows. What other singer can do that? Texas is the best group in Europe, in my opinion. Sophisticated pop that you can sit down and listen to, or get up and dance to. This Greatest Hits is a gem for those who've never heard of them, and die-hard fans alike. I usually don't like remixes, but those on the bonus disc are really nice! There's a true disco vibe on the Jules Disco Trip Mix of "In Our Lifetime". And the Sunship remix of "In Demand" is fun. Plus you get enhanced music videos. Get aquainted with this group now. They'll still be making hits long after the wannabe's have faded.
