Song of the day: December 4, 2009

Smashes And Trashes is the obligatory Greatest Hits collection which happily coincides with the reformation of the band after an eight year hiatus. There are whisperings of a new album in the pipeline too, and as something of a primer, there are three new songs included here. 
Because Of You is something of a tortured love song, with all the chiming guitars you'd expect gently lighting the way for the verses. It smoulders perfectly, exploding with guttural riffs, pounding bass, and an angelic operatic vocal from Skin that is up there with her performances. It richly deserves its place on their greatest hits.
