Sixpence None The Richer have split and to say goodbye they have left us with a 'Best Of' that features all their most successful songs like "Kiss Me", "Don't Dream It's Over" and "There She Goes". There are a few new things that were rejected for previous albums and wash up here like "Loser Like Me" and "Us". Then there are a few oddities and rarities where they have contributed tracks to movie soundtracks or compilations so you get "The Ground You Shook" from the 'Roaring Lambs' album and "Breathe" from 'Streams'. Personally I love their version of Abba's "Dancing Queen" which featured on the 'Dick' movie soundtrack and there's something wonderfully weird about the Japanese version of "Kiss Me" that appeals! I'll miss them because they had a credible shot at the mainstream and were slagged off by narrow-minded churchy types who didn't understand. Can't remember how many people I corrected who were suggesting they'd backslidden. Why do we shoot our own side? Now it doesn't matter as the band move on. Get hold of this and celebrate a great band!

Great collection of songs by a talented group. The first song I recall was a video seen in 1998, "Angeltread": from 1995 cd "This Beautiful Mess". Also in 1998 I saw the video for song "Kiss Me"; Leigh Nash has a beautiful voice. And who could ever forget their top hit of all time "There She Goes" first heard in 1988 by the La's. You could hear this song on commercials, a popular radio favorite at the time of it's release. In 2002 they covered a song heard in 1986 by Crowded House, "Don't Dream it's Over" which faired well: I luv the video concept for the song. Even after this farewell cd, Leigh kept on with her vocals on 2006 project, I saw the video for "My Idea of Heaven" first on ccm tv: luved it !!
And just when you think they are gone for good; a surprise cd 4 years later! GOD Bless! -Don
