Greatest Hits is their Greatest

Unlike De La Soul or Digable Planets, P.M. Dawn never succeeded in stretching their daisy-age sensibilities into a full-length classic, which is why this compilation is their most consistent moment. Talented enough to craft breathtakingly beautiful hip-hop ballads, the duo also proves capable of heavier, gritter moments here, as on the Princely "Downtown Venus" and the propulsive "Gotta Be...Movin' On Up". But it's the hits that made P.M. Dawn stars, and the sequence of "Set Adrift On Memory Bliss" through "I'd Die Without You" and "Looking Through Patient Eyes" brings to mind missed opportunities to sample/cover 10cc's "I'm Not in Love", Roxy Music's "More Than This", and other similar dreamscapes. For a Best-Of, this album presents P.M. Dawn as proudly as many of their eccentric influences, making it nearly irrelevant that their individual albums didn't match this definitive career summary.

Where Is Set Adrift?

Why does this show as a partial album with no "Set Adrift on Memory Bliss"?
Weak Sauce! How Sad!
