Overview

20th Century Masters -- Millennium Collection: The Very Best of Semisonic leads off with their Grammy-winning hit single "Closing Time," which sets the template for the group's sound. Loud guitars, loud drums, Dan Wilson's honest and heartfelt vocals, and simple, hummable melodies put Semisonic in the category of modern bands like the Counting Crows and the Wallflowers who aren't slick but are still pop and popular. The collection features two songs from their debut EP release from 1995, Pleasure; three cuts from 1996's Great Divide, including the snappy title track; four tracks from 1998's Feeling Strangely Fine; two from 2001's All About Chemistry; and the very smooth "Over My Head" from the soundtrack to 2001's Summer Catch. The disc does a good job presenting Semisonic as one of the better bands riding the tail end of the alternative wave.
