From humble beginnings--911 won a GMTV's Search For The Next Big Thing and took off from there--Lee, Spike and Jimmy have quickly risen to become one of the mighty triumvirate of boy bands, along with Boyzone and Westlife. Three albums down the line, their Greatest Hits compilation album is with us already; and given the quality of the singles, it's not a moment too soon. Each track is the sort of hummable pop gem you recognise immediately, even if you had no idea it was by 911, from "Party People ... Friday Night", to "Love Sensation" to their Bee Gees cover "More Than A Woman". And the Little Bit More? Two singles, "If You'd Only Love Me" and "Wonderland", to be released after this album hits the shops--and proof of the pop mettle of 911 that even their unreleased tracks are sure-fire hits. --Amber Cowan

Musically this isn't good at all cheesy,predictable and just not thought through. Opportunism plays a big part in their top ten success here in the UK and at a time when you could still count on one hand boybands before the market became flooded from 1998 onwards.
They managed to scrape a chart topper in the low selling early weeks of Janurary 99 for a sole week with a cover of 'A Little Bit More' which is bearable to listen to at least and 10 top ten singles overall.
By 2000 though the writing was on the wall as Westlife,Boyzone,5ive,A1,Another Level and with Backstreet Boys in full swing at this point not to mention thousands of B league boybands cluttering the lower reaches of the UK charts, 911 disbanded with a live announcement on BBC radio 1. The problem though was that at this point no one cared and the quality of boybands had far outreached this group.
Fun Fact: Although the group were only successful in the UK and not the rest of Europe or internationally they were massive in Asia and rivalled global boybands like Take That, Boyzone and Backstreet Boys for popularity there!
