Album Review

Texas always seemed out of place, from the moment they released their debut until the time they hit the big time with White on Blonde in the second half of the '90s. They may have been able to gain momentum from Britpop, but they didn't really belong, since their sensibility was far too soulful and classy, borrowing equally from the smooth soul of the '70s, Americana fascinations, and, in a roundabout way, the sophisti-pop of the '80s. Still, they were professional, stylish, and, thanks to Sharleen Spiteri, sexy, which meant they did make sense in the aftermath of Britpop, even if they were a bit out of step. As the splendid Greatest Hits proves, they could even have made it into the American mainstream if they had received a push on adult alternative pop/rock radio, since they were melodic, classy, and solid. They never were groundbreaking, but they were professionals, and even if this hits collection has a couple run-of-the-mill cuts, at its best — "Say What You Want," "Black Eyed Boy," "In Our Lifetime" — it's as good as mainstream post-alternative adult pop gets. For European listeners, certainly a snapshot of the times, and for Americans, this is a good way to get acquainted with a minor treasure.

Customer Reviews

Texas Album of Greatest Hits

I bought this album because it had all the songs I had heard as singles, but was previously too lazy to buy. The benefit of all greatest hits must surely be that you can get a mixture of good well known singles and also some really good new unheard songs, thrown in the mix too. I would reccomend this to any texas fan as you know what you are getting, but I think it also holds weight as an introduction to their work.

Charlene is a Goddess

If ever one band never reached the success that they should have, it was Texas. Charlene has a voice that only Angels dream about, and also she is a sweat heart. If you like Music this album should be in your collection, I challenge anybody to listen to"So in Love with you", and not get goose bumps! Buy and enjoy, and if ever you get to meet Charlene, say hello for me
