All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Released in the summer of 2003, The Best of Sophie B. Hawkins is the first retrospective on the adult alternative singer/songwriter, and it's not without its quirks -- which might be appropriate for this particular singer/songwriter. The biggest quirk is that even though it contains all of her hits -- "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover," "Right Beside You," "As I Lay Me Down," "Only Love The Ballad of Sleeping Beauty" -- it completely overlooks her third album, Timbre, which is a bit odd, especially since it contains two new songs in "California Here I Come" and a cover of the Band's "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," not to mention the Butcher Brothers' remix of...
