The Singles is a compilation album by Australian pop duo Savage Garden, released in June 2012 by Universal.

For a brief number of years in the late 90's, Savage Garden were huge, releasing two albums and achieving record sales in excess of 20 million units. Then going their separate ways, this release is billed as a celebration of their 20 year anniversary and includes a demo of a recently discovered track.

As the title of this release suggests, this is a complete compilation of the singles, including songs that were only pushed in selected territories. Whilst this means that followers will have the vast majority of the material already, for a new generation of music fans or older casual followers, this is a great introduction to a fine pop act. “Truly, Madly, Deeply” stands the test of time as an exemplary ballad, while “I Knew I Loved You” is nearly as brilliant. Darren Hayes' angelic vocals shine on both, while the lesser known “Santa Monica” and “Hold Me” also display a talent for an alluringly vulnerable performance.

The ability of Savage Garden to craft more dynamic pieces shouldn't be forgotten, with the synth-driven “Affirmation” pulsating with enthusiasm. “Break Me Shake Me” sees the band successfully move into rockier territory, while “The Best Thing About Me” combines crunching guitar chords with dance sensibilities. The piano-led “She” is very much a stirring organic piece that hints that beyond the releases, there was more to come from the duo. However to the dismay of their fans that was not to be bit Haynes going the solo route.

There is no denying that this is hugely enjoyable commercial pop music, and the fact these songs connected and remain so loved is proof of their enduring and timeless appeal.

Check out the tracks: “To The Moon And Back”; “Break Me, Shake Me”; “I Knew I Loved You”; "Affirmation" and “The Animal Song”. 

This Limited Edition double LP housed in a gatefold sleeve is pressed in Australia on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
