In Canada, multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter Matthew Good has been a fixture on the music scene for almost two decades. With the Matthew Good Band he started 1995 with the debut "Last Of The Ghetto Astronauts". Since the dissolution of the band in 2002, he has been on the road with various accompanying musicians. The pieces he chose for this compilation are pieces that have proven themselves in many ways - live, such as "Apparitions", sales figures, but also artistically. The man sings about the less fortunate who have each other ("Born Losers"), or the failure in a relationship ("In A World Called Catastrophe"). He can almost swing with orchestra ("Zero Orchestra") and rock without anger ("21st Century Living"). Acoustically oriented, however, it is the most fun ("Strange Days"). Exploring the versatility of his work is an exciting thing that could be even more fun if there were any hints on the record as to when and on which album the songs were released.
