Greatest Hits

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
By calling their Greatest Hits CD as such, Space Cadet is being very ironic. This is the Texans' first full-length album, and the focus is on new material; thus, this 2003 release isn't really a greatest-hits package. Another thing that adds to the irony and humor of the title is the fact that the term greatest-hits sounds somewhat dated in the 21st century; it has a '60s/'70s connotation, whereas most of today's artists prefer the term "best of." OK, now that it's been established that Space Cadet has a sense of irony, what about the music itself? The music itself is quite solid.

By calling their Greatest Hits CD as such, Space Cadet is being very ironic. This is the Texans' first full-length album, and the focus is on new material; thus, this 2003 release isn't really a greatest-hits package. Another thing that adds to the irony and humor of the title is the fact that the term greatest-hits sounds somewhat dated in the 21st century; it has a '60s/'70s connotation, whereas most of today's artists prefer the term "best of." OK, now that it's been established that Space Cadet has a sense of irony, what about the music itself? The music itself is quite solid. Space Cadet is among the numerous post-grunge bands that surfaced in the early 2000s; the thing that separates them from most of the post-grunge competition is the hooky power pop element they bring to the table. Greatest Hits obviously owes a lot to Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, and the Foo Fighters, but there is also a fair amount of Cheap Trick and the Beatles in their punky alternative pop
ock sound. In some respects, Greatest Hits brings to mind what Courtney Love was going for on Celebrity Skin, which was Hole's most poppy, hook-minded effort and was a definite departure from the blistering alt-metal of Pretty on the Inside and the straight-up grunge of Live Through This. Ted Levin, Space Cadet's founder/lead vocalist, obviously isn't trying to be a riot grrrl -- he's the wrong gender for that -- but Greatest Hits does share Celebrity Skin's desire to bring something hooky and infectious to a post-Nevermind rock world. While Greatest Hits has its share of darkness and angst, it also has a sense of fun at times -- especially when Space Cadet successfully covers the Cars' 1979 hit "Let's Go." And when all is said and done, Greatest Hits ends up becoming one of the more memorable post-grunge discs of late 2003.
