The first hits compilation from the R&B/pop four-piece, The Best of Blue is a comprehensive retrospective of one of the most successful boy bands of the early noughties. Released just before they announced their split in 2004, it features their three U.K. number ones, "Too Close," "If You Come Back," and the Elton John duet "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word," plus nine other Top 20 hits including the Stevie Wonder collaboration "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours," the Notorious B.I.G.-sampling "Fly by II," and the Gary Barlow-penned "Guilty." Five previously unreleased tracks are also included, alongside All Rise album track "Best in Me."
