Overview

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 "As I Lay Me Down." This is a problem, but it's not a major one, since Tongues & Tails (represented with five tracks) and Whaler (represented with six) are her two most popular albums, and they make for good companions, particularly since the best moments are distilled here, making it both a good summary and introduction to a singer/songwriter who often gets overlooked because she's too mainstream for alternative and too unusual for the mainstream.

“The Best of Sophie B Hawkins” contains a good assortment of quality songs. Musical hits such as “Right Beside You”, “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover”, and “Only Love” are included on this collection. “As I Lay Me Down” is one of my favorite songs on this cd. “As I Lay Me Down” is an upbeat track relating to lasting love. “The Best of Sophie B Hawkins” is great for those who enjoy pop and/or pop/rock collections.
