Truly Madly Completely - The Best of Savage Garden
Music snobs might look down their noses at Australian duo Savage Garden's prefab approach to commercial pop, but there is no arguing with the group's impressive record sales. Their 1997 self-titled debut spawned two massive international hits, the bouncy, infectious "I Want You" and the sugary electro-ballad "Truly Madly Deeply," pushing the album into multi-platinum status. "I Knew I Loved You," the first single from Savage Garden's sophomore release, also hit Number 1.
Naturally, these songs are included on TRULY MADLY COMPLETELY: THE BEST OF SAVAGE GARDEN, along with "To the Moon and Back" and the chugging identity manifesto "Affirmation." Throughout the set, Savage Garden's marriage of light club beats with breezy, memorable hooks sounds tight and accomplished, and for fans of Top 40 fare it is guaranteed to go down easy.
