Album Review

Although it's missing one charting single — the minor 1993 rock radio hit "Don't You" — Rhino's 2006 The Best of Candlebox is a good overview of the grunge band's work. It has all their major hits — "Change," "Cover Me," "Simple Lessons," "Understanding," "10,000 Horses," "It's Alright," "Happy Pills," and, of course, "Far Behind," which is the one tune of theirs that is known to the average alt-rock fan — along with a sampling of album tracks, mainly drawn from Candlebox and Lucy, plus the relative rarity of "Glowing Soul," which was originally on the soundtrack to the Adam Sandler comedy The Waterboy. There's not much in the way of packaging — the flimsy booklet has no notes to speak of — but for those who want to stroll down a flannel-paved memory lane, this comp does present the band in its best light.

More Please!!

Why oh why can't we have more music like this!!! I love Candlebox. It's solid, quality rock. I'd love it the radio stations would play this music and not the bubblegum garbage we get shoved down our throats. Sigh, alas, this GH album I will play over & over & over again.

Timeless

I agree that I no matter how many times I have heard these songs they never seem to get old. It's just too bad these guys never really made it big because they are truly talented. I will finally get to see them live in less than a week and I know it will just confirm what I already know - that these guys are timeless

Candlebox rocks

The CD should have included Don't You, but with that being said, this is still a great collection of their material. Kevin Martin is good a rock singer/songwriter as there is in the business. He is even better live, but this greatest hits cd will knock your songs off in the meantime.

Biography

Formed: December, 1991 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Candlebox rode the grunge bandwagon to multi-platinum success in the early '90s, despite howls of protest from the Seattle faithful who considered their music a watered-down version of the genuine article. To be sure, Candlebox's take on grunge diluted the punk and indie elements inherent in its original form; instead, they were rooted in the bluesy, classic-style hard rock that grunge had ostensibly replaced. Their resulting commercial appeal made them highly suspect in the minds of authenticity-obsessed...
