The Calling were one of my first introductions to rock music, and despite what a lot of people seem to think, they were not one hit wonders, but still didn't have enough hits to merit a 'greatest hits' album. This 18 track 'Very Best Of' collection milks together tracks from the band's two studio albums: 'Camino Palmero' and 'Two'. Their biggest hit 'Wherever You Will Go' is presented by the studio, as well as an acoustic version. The other hits, 'Adrienne', 'Our Lives', 'Things Will Go Our Way', and 'Anything', which only had success in the US, are also here.
As there is no track listing for this album at the moment, here it is:
1. Wherever You Will Go 2. Adrienne 3. Things Will Go My Way 4. Chasing The Sun 5. Our Lives 6. Just That Good 7. Anything 8. Somebody Out There 9. Stigmatized 10. Unstoppable 11. Nothing's Changed 12. Final Answer 13. Surrender 14. One By One Calling 15. Dreaming in Red 16. Lost 17. Your Hope 18. Wherever You Will Go (Acoustic)
I just want to clarify here: these guys have been around for ages, they sung the song "wherever you will go" long before it was taken over by the girl on the TV adds singing it! Its better sung here, very deeply and soft, brought me close to tears when I first heard it nearly 10 years ago now. The album is also great but this in my opinon is the best song on the album.
A good reminder of the rockier grittier music in the early 2000's and sung with heart and emotion.
