AllMusic Review by

Record summarizes the first four albums from U.K. chillout mainstays Zero 7: Simple Things (2001), When It Falls (2004), The Garden (2006), and Yeah Ghost (2009). Released less than a year after the fourth album, some of its selections are debatable, but those dismayed with the absence of “Likufanele” or “Medicine Man” likely have the parent albums anyway. Most importantly, this disc does gather the duo’s most-known material, including “Destiny,” “Distractions,” “In the Waiting Line,” and “Polaris,” all of which were licensed for several compilations and/or used in advertisements. There’s an emphasis on the debut, with seven of its tracks included here, while When It Falls gets a short shrift, represented only twice.
