Great retrospective but 2 poorly edited tracks on CD2.
on 21 November 2013
I am a big fan of Gabrielle's and mainly bought this for the 7 new tracks on CD1. It's a great compilation of most of her singles and some of her best album tracks. Personally I would have preferred "Find Your Way" from the 1st album and "Our Love Is Over" from the 2nd album to be included, instead of SEVEN tracks from her last album "Always", but those tracks are very good.
I had to knock a star off for the remixes of "Rise" and "Sunshine". They are amazing remixes in their original form, but on this album the compilers have unfortunately taken the tracks from "Rise Underground", which was a continuous mix CD of Gabrielle remixes from 2000. This results in the remix of "Sunshine" starting abruptly and fading out while it is mixing into another song; the remix of "Rise" also starts abruptly and then ends just as abruptly while it is changing song. It is a shame the compilers didn't just source these 2 remixes from the "Rise" and "Sunshine" CD singles, where they appear in their full and unedited form!
