Who could have predicted that the bass player from a Smiths-ish pop combo called the Housemartins could change the face of dance music with a controlled noise jumble that was ridiculously infectious and extra thrilling, all while sounding virtually impossible?
The story behind Norman Cook 's evolution into dance music's savior is fascinating, but you won't find it here. With one of the most honest titles for a compilation, The Greatest Hits: Why Try Harder goes for the big numbers -- and sometimes the smaller numbers from the big full-lengths -- without pretending to be a history lesson or an attempt to define the scattershot career of Cook. While it would complete the trilogy of important Cook remixes, the absence of his take on Wildchild 's "Renegade Master" is telling, since the hit is just as important but a bit more underground and raw.
Instead, Why Try Harder goes for the gloss, and does so triumphantly. The curious can now Ive Got My Eyes On You - Gene Vincent - Greatest Hits the so-so Palookaville since its best is here, but Dont Let The Man Get You Down - Fatboy Slim - The Greatest Hits (Why Try Harder) bitten by the big beat bug will have to go further, because Cook 's best productions weren't always his singles.
