Texas back to their best,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
It may seem slightly premature after just a decade of music but Texas have a Greatest Hits album out. Originally titled; ' Texas- the greatest Hits', Sharleen serenades us through eighteen of their best radio friendly singles. This latest release is a chronilogical tour of the 1990's for the band incorporating their more rocky era's through ' I don't want a lover', to their soulful successes; ' Say what you want' and ' In our lifetime', taking us bang up to date with their recent chart stormer; ' In Demand'. A greatest Hits album usually signifies that a band wish to end one era and start another, but Texas already did that in 1997 with their re- invention from respected rock outfit to mainstream success via ' White On Blonde'. So what about stand out tracks?- well there are of course the obvious gem; ' I don't want a lover', ' Say what you want', ' Halo' and ' In our lifetime' but there are also hidden treasures, namely new efforts ' Inner Smile' and ' So in love with you'. All of the above signify that Texas- The Greatest Hits' is a great listen, full of great, relaxing tunes which may even convert the unconvinced.
