5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough collection of radio hits, November 13, 2003
By 
This review is from: Thank You (Audio CD)
If you are a passing fan and you just want the radio hits, this collection is one of the best of the MANY compilations competing for the boost from the 2003 holiday season sales. Unlike many of the rest though, the casual fan gets ALL the biggest radio hits (unlike Pearl Jam's 'Lost Dogs' or Tori Amos' 'Tales of Librarian') with no filler (unlike Peter Gabriel's 'Hit').
Serious fans will quibble about the song choices, as greatest hits does not equal best songs. (e.g., Only one song from "Shrangri-La"?!) But with any good band, reasonable ears/minds will differ, and besides, we make our own compilations anyway. Still, even for hardcore fans, there IS the decent new song, a harder edge tune titled "All in the Suit that You Wear", and the acoustic version of "Plush" from MTV Headbanger's Ball-1992 (which was a minor radio hit in an of itself).
I used to loathe this band back in 1992, when it seemed like they were just Johnny-come-latelies of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soudgarden, but I came to respect them more after I learned a little bit about the grunge scene (i.e., all the sonic similarities existed before any of these bands hit big). Plus I just can't get "Big Bang Baby" out of my head, and those chord changes on "Plush" and "Interstate Love Song" are truly infectious.
