    Somehow Birds Of Tokyo snuck up on us. In the dozen years since forming in Perth these five unassuming guys have gradually grown - song by song, gig by gig - into Australia's biggest contemporary rock band. They may not yet be household names but their songs have been heard in everyone's home. 

    The group has won multiple ARIA and APRA awards. They've co-headlined virtually every important music festival in this country. They've had tracks in major TV and film campaigns and even played the AFL Grand Final. All of this was driven by a string of emotive anthems that have dominated radio, from Triple J's "Hottest 100" to the commercial FM charts. Big songs like "Plans," "Broken Bones," "Wild At Heart," "This Fire," "Lanterns," "Anchor," and their latest hit single "I'd Go With You Anywhere." It's an airplay streak unmatche by any Australian artist since Powderfinger.

    Even so, for most people Birds Of Tokyo have still somehow 'flown under the radar.' Until now.

    Their new compilation album - 'Playlist' - gathers all these songs and more into one undeniable 18 track album. For all but their most hardcore fans the collection is a revelation. Casual listeners will be surprised to realize that they actually already know the words and melodies for most of these tunes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY GOOD SINGLES COMPILATION This singles collection of Birds of Tokyo highlights the huge steps the band has taken from its' initial releases such as "Puzzle" to the acclaimed recent singles such as "Lanterns", "This Fire" and "When The Night Falls Quiet" from wonderful album March Fires, and, post that album, the sublime "Änchor" and "'I'd Go With You Anywhere". Whilst the earlier singles may lack the commercial appeal of later releases, they help form a valuable document of a band that has become a real favourite of many people, including myself. The popular singles are truly memorable, with Lanterns and This Fire personal highlights, however the whole collection is very enjoyable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I bought this album because it had songs I already liked and I was interested in hearing what their other songs were like, it was worth it. This is a good alternative album and I would recommend to anyone to have a listen. My favourite songs off this album are: Wild At Heart, Plans, Lanterns, This Fire, Puzzle, I'd Go With You Anywhere and Wild Eyed Boy.
