Awake: The Best Of Live is a collection of 19 songs encompassing all of their masterpiece albums, from the funky catchiness of Mental Jewelry, through the hard, saucy strangeness of Secret Samadhi and self-gratuitous poserhood of V, up to the more earnest, simpler Birds of Prey. Yup, you'll find the classics here: Lightning Crashes, I Alone, The Dolphin's Cry, etc.
However, there are problems with this so-called "Best Of" compilation. First of all, the CD runs in chronological order, a trend which I didn't care for with Van Halen's Best Of Volume 1 and don't care for here. I like a bit of creative mixing of the songs, sort of like a concert. Second, a few of the hits have been omitted to make room for lesser-known album tracks. And while I salute this, I have to disagree with the choices. Dance With You instead of They Stood Up For Love, or even Voodoo Lady? Nobody Knows instead of Simple Creed????? And here comes the worst part: Pillar of Davidson (a GREAT song, by the way) instead of White, Discussion. Whoops, but they decided to cut more than two minutes from Pillar, leaving us with a 4:23 shell of a song. I'm disgusted.
Then again, we do get two new songs. I Walk The Line is a terrific cover of the Johnny Cash classic, but We Deal In Dreams sounds like something that was left on the cutting room floor from the Throwing Copper recordings.
Personally, my instinct was to make a Live mix CD (I figure I could make a better compilation myself), and I wanted to include I Walk The Line.Read more ›
