|Between the release of 2004's The Best Of and 2007's Greatest Hits, Groove Armada released a grand total of one studio album, so it seems like a very peculiar time for the duo's second compilation. Greatest Hits, which even looks a whole lot like The Best Of, merely replaces five of its predecessor's inclusions with cuts taken from 2007's Soundboy Rock. So, on this disc, you get "Song 4 Mutya," "Get Down," "Love Sweet Sound," "Lightsonic," and "Girls Say" instead of "Take Me Home," "Madder," "Chicago," "Think Twice," and "Inside My Mind." Between the two releases, there are nine overlapping tracks. They are both adequate overviews. ~ Andy Kellman
