Format: Audio CD
Any release by the majestical Babybird or its talisman and guru Stephen Jones is cause for celebration. He remains one of the most under-rated, criminally ignored artists of the last decade. This 'selection', as it is just a selection, is not a bad collection just not the best, in my opinion.It smacks of Record company commercial interest rather than artist representation. Of course, this is subjective, but where is the epic and wrenching "Take me Back" , possible his most brilliant 6 minutes. There is also another 'best of' which contains his most earlier and solitary work that is actually a cross-section of material released as E.P.'s which, furthermore, are available as a box set. This C.D. covers most of Babybird the band material from Ugly Beautiful, There's something Going on and Bugged. A good starting point only, do yourself a favour, and just buy these 3 albums and the box-set. You will not be disappointed.

Not heard a few of the songs on here, as I only have two of his albums ('Bugged' and 'There's Something Going On'), but obviously I know his biggest hit 'You're Gorgeous.' What struck me straight away when I saw this was coming out was that of the 18 songs here, there are 8 from the 10 (11 if you include the bonus track) songs on the album 'Bugged.' It's an excellent album yes, but why not just buy it for all 11 songs? If 8 songs were chosen from that album, surely more could've been chosen from There's Something Going On: The title track for a start, and 'You Will Always Love Me,' which are much better than 'One Dead Groove.'
One thing this album will do is to show that there's much more to Babybird than 'You're Gorgeous.' People should recognise his other hits on here: 'Back Together' and 'If You'll Be Mine' most notably, both passionate and tender love songs, complete with soaring strings. He doesn't just do love songs, as the haunting tale of murder, wife-beating's and drownings in duck-ponds, in 'Bad Old Man' will show.
The music here (what I've heard) is all excellent, but it's just not 'the best of.' His other albums (the two I have for a start) are worth getting in themselves. 'Getaway' and 'The F-word' will be lodged in your memory for ages.

....this is more like a sampler of Stephen Jones classics than a real "best of". The official Babybird website says:
"Chosen by ECHO, this is not a real 'best of' (although that probably would be impossible to please all tastes)."
This will give everyone a taste of what's beyond "You're Gorgeous" and although I would have chosen a rather different tracklist, it's a reasonable cross section of his later, "Hi-Fi" work.
