David Gray's Greatest Hits
on 13 April 2015
I'd always enjoyed hearing some David Gray, but realised one day that I didn't actually own any of his albums. I went for this 2007 greatest hits package first, and it really got me into this man's work. Although he has fared better in terms of chart positions as an album artist, he has had a handful of big hit singles, and is responsible for so many excellent songs.
The tracks here span from his 1993 debut album 'A Century Ends' to 2005's 'Life in Slow Motion'. Most of the tracks are the originals, expect for 'Be Mine' and 'Babylon', which are bith remixes, and 'Shine', presented here as a live recording. As is often the case with such hits packages, there were two new songs, 'Destroyer', and the joyful single 'You're the World to Me'.
Fantastic voice, songs and lyrics, if you need a sampler of David Gray's work, pick up 'Greatest Hits'.
