OK, to be fair, Phillipps isn't entirely blameless when it comes to his own fate. He had trouble keeping the same band line-up intact from disc to disc, and drug problems played a recurrent role impairing his progress. But he had a point: music this perfect doesn't come for free, and seeing his heart and soul spilled out get him nowhere no doubt wore at Phillipps.
Hopefully one day he'll get his due-- a new incarnation of the Chills has been up and running for a bit now-- but in the meantime, the best we'll get is documents like this one, sad reminders of what so many missed out on the first time around. Supplanting the earlier Kaleidoscope World as a singles overview of the band, from early days to cuts from Soft Bomb, Heavenly is a great starting point for any Chills newcomer.
From there on in its one great highlight after another, sprightliness and beauty tinged with melancholy and gloom in equal amounts, not to mention the quick, brisk surge that colored so many of their tracks "Oncoming Day," "Never Never Go" and the charging "Look For the Good in Others," presented in a remixed form.
