Sophie B. Hawkins (it can be safely said) has never received the acclaim she has deserved - or the record sales and chart positions! Tracks like Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover and Right Beside You SHOULD have been world beaters which went to the top of charts all over the world. Instead they were both moderately successsful, and now the only songs of Sophie's that the average Joe on the street knows by her. So both of those classics have become perennial radio staples, which of course has cheapened them over the years, so they don't sound as fresh and good as they should! A vicious cycle indeed. But that's where the other tracks on this collection come in, with the majority of them being good pop/rock songs that you will play for as long as you own the CD. The biggest selling points for this album are the two aforementioned tracks, as they are the best ones on here. But the others are good, and even if they weren't you should buy this collection for those two classics alone! And this time the DJ won't talk over the start and finish or play the radio stations 10-year-old scratched vinyl copy!
