5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Of Belly is good indeed, 27 Aug 2002
This review is from: Sweet Ride - The Best of Belly (Audio CD)
This albumn covers not only the 2 releases King and Star, but much more than that delves into B-sides, French Radio edits and a Live Recording not to mention one previoulsy unreleased track. The end result is a stunning, whirling description of 4AD Indie Pop in the early and mid 1990's. The record starts slowly with Spaceman. This is a haunting track "I'm not a Unicorn, Go out and find another one". Seal my fate, Feed the Tree, Now they'll Sleep, Slow Dog and Superconnected are storming, whirling hook filled slongs that will remind you just how good Belly were and will astonish you that more commercial success was not forthcoming. Beyond these come the depth of the CD that will provide enough attraction for those already owning the 2 albumns to buy this becomes apparent - Judas Mon Coeur, Thief, Dream on Me and spectacularly Are You Experienced?,the Hendrix song which is good enough to justify 10 itself. Belly's quality is derived from a combination of lyrics that are elusive and descriptive, guitars that are never simple but allways melodius and vocals that are simply perfect. A sad day when they split but Sweet Ride is a perfect reminder of just how fantastic they were.
