Just a few months after both of the members of M2M, Marion Raven and Marit Larsen, released their debut solo albums, Atlantic released the Swedish pop duo's first best-of compilation, The Day You Went Away. Though the girls only issued three singles together, "Don't Say You Love Me," "Everything You Do," and "Mirror Mirror," there are 20 tracks on the album, a fact made possible by the various acoustic and remixed versions, not to mention the Spanish adaptation of "Everything You Do" and the Mandarin one of "Pretty Boy." Still, with six songs from Shades of Purple and five from The Big Room, that still leaves a lot of space, which means that there are three new tracks ("Not to Me," "Wait for Me," and "Is You") included, as well as a bonus disc comprised of music videos, the making of a music video, and the girls in Bangkok and Norway. It's way more M2M than is necessary, but it certainly does the job of giving the best of them.
