Buying a ‘best of’ album might seem like paying for the encore, yet ‘best of’ albums consistently feature among the bestsellers in just about every music genre. Maybe that’s even more surprising outside of Christian music than within it. Best of albums are, by their very nature, a bit of a pick-and-mix experience. With single songs and tracks taken from multiple albums, the original donating album loses its integrity; especially if the original was the product of a single concept or idea by the artist. The ‘best of collection’ might give you some or all of the artists best work, but you won’t be able to follow the creative train of thought that led to each song.
The success of ‘best of’ albums implies that music fans don’t care about the integrity of the original album or each track’s place within the concept. All we want is to hear again the songs and words we already know and love. This is less of an issue in Christian music where each track often stands alone as an act of worship, an expression of praise or a statement of faith. This doesn’t mean that Christian ‘best of’ albums, such as Matt Redman’s ‘Sing Like Never Before’ are thrown together - sort of hotchpotch of tunes randomly selected on their popularity. To be ‘The Essential Collection’ it has to be, essentially, a collection. And collections are never random or thrown together; they are carefully structured and represent the collector – consciously or otherwise.
‘Best of’ albums primarily represent just that: they are 'the best' music, lyrics, arrangements, emotions and intentions of the artist. Look down the track list for this ‘best of’ and – if you know and love Matt’s music, you’ll see what I mean. You probably know the words, the tunes and can sing – even play, every one of the 14 pre-established tracks. It’s fairly certain you already have all of them – or nearly all of them, on one or more other album. And that just makes it even more certain that you’re seriously thinking about adding this to your collection too. That’s because, just as you can’t have too much of a good thing (you can’t believe, me; that’s what makes a thing good), you can’t have too many either.
If you love and appreciate the finer points of music – Matt's or anyone’s, you’ll know how much more is revealed by listening to more than one version of the same piece. So, for you, that’ll be well enough reason to have this ‘best of’ collection with its new recordings – live and studio, of Matt’s most popular works. For those of us who lack that degree of discerning expertise, but love Matt’s thoughtful lyrics and lifting melodies, there's a much more practical reason for adding this CD to the car, home and whatever mobile device you carry around; it’s the easy option. It’s simply the most convenient way to have, carry and hear one of the church’s greatest contributors to its modern spirit of praise, worship and devotion. Yes, you could mix it for yourself from old CDs, but why would you want to, when it’s all done for you, and in a new shiny jewel case too. Nice. – Les Ellison.
