Swing Out Sister's 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection features 11 of the group's lighthearted synth pop singles, including the hit "Breakout." Songs like "Waiting Game," "Surrender," and "You on My Mind" follow suit, while their cover of "La la Means I Love You" tries too hard to be soulful and emotional. Overall, this is a decent collection, but the 1998 import The Best of Swing Out Sister remains the definitive best-of for this group. ~ Heather Phares

Sophisti-pop at its best!!!

Swing Out Sister are my favorite sophisti-pop group of all time and their jazzy pop-soul (as well as that by other, like-minded, musical acts) is severely underrated, especially after they became another one-hit wonder. I own a couple of other compilations, a live album, and their last effort, Where Our Love Grows, by them also. I'm so glad that they're still going strong after all these years (since the late '80s). I got into them and their music a few years after the 21st century began and I'm glad I rediscovered them, and checked out their material. I highly recommend this, because this is just some of the most beautiful and refreshing music ever made. I can listen to the whole album without skipping tracks if I wanted to and it's just such a breath of fresh air in contrast to the junky music that's been polluting the airwaves in recent years. The songs are great for relaxation. Try SOS, believe me, you'll love them.
