David Gray has had his issues (he was dumped by two labels early in his career), but today he's an international superstar. He owes a lot of his success to his last three chart-topping albums, and he includes many of the hits from them here. Most familiar is Babylon, an upbeat acoustic track that pushed him into the spotlight, but popular numbers like Be Mine and The Other Side are here as well.
It would've been nice if the singer/songwriter had included some of the lesser-known songs from his first two albums (only a live version of Shine, from his debut disc, represents his early material), but new fans will still enjoy this safe record. Two new songs, You're The World To Me and Destroyer, offer something worthwhile for long-time fans, too.
