Editorial Reviews

Time, and their own stubbornness and persistence has proven them right. Complied by the band members themselves, 'XX' is a special two-disc set which captures the many highs in a 20 year recording career which has produced ten full length CDs, and two DVDs.

Like the other reviewers here, I consider myself a big fan of Great Big Sea. I have all their albums and concert videos, and have seen them play live. And like, I suspect, many others out there, I have compiled my own "best of" discs more than once. And my personal playlists do resemble the song choices on "XX" for the most part.

And while the choices here are undeniably great (except, as someone else mentioned, "Come and I Will Sing You"), the fact is that we hardcore fans know there are some tracks missing, and a few tracks seem to have been altered from their original versions.

For starters, there's really no excuse for a 40-track collection of "hits" to omit songs that WERE released as singles. Where are Can't Stop Falling, End of the World, Shines Right Through, Fast as I Can, or Everything Shines? All good tunes, all relased as singles. Of course, it's hard to argue the logic of well-liked album tracks like Captain Wedderburn, (A Boat Like) Gideon Brown and Ferryland Sealer. But the other songs should be here as well.

The six new tracks are just fine, although I don't think the live version of "England" improves upon the original. The new songs also illustrate what I personally like most about the band: their ability to comfortably slip into different song styles, while retaining their identity.

Last and probably least, I'm not crazy about dividing the set into a "Pop" disc and a "Folk One." True fans like both the band's primary styles, and the majority of their albums offer up about equal portions of both. Longtime fans, in my experience, tend to prefer the traditional Newfoundland-based folks songs, and are likely to get a bit bored with disc one (the pop one).

I love GBS! They are awsome in concert and I enjoy their CD's as well. The only dissapointment I have with this CD is I was expecting it to be as good as Road Rage. That is the ultimate GBS CD. You can really get a flavor of what they are all about in that CD.

A wonderful assortment of some of GBS's best songs. I listen to this every time I have a long drive.

This band is so fun fun fun. Energy lightness unique sound. I was SO SO bummed when they actually came to my city, and I found out the same night as the concert as I drove by as the sold out crowd was blocking traffic. I'll be watching the fan site much closer in the future!!

Great Big Sea is my favorite so I'm already biased but this is a great compilation of their work that they've done over their twenty year span of playing together. If you're a fan you will adore this album and if you're not a fan well you will be one.

Great Big Fan. Album doesn't disappoint. Concert cuts are really cool. Darrel's voice on a couple of cuts is a welcome presence. Cant wait for the tour this Spring.
