A 1999 greatest hits collection, By Request finds Boyzone at the very top of their game. With no fewer than three chart-topping, multi-platinum albums under the band's belts, it's hardly surprising that this compilation is jam-packed with huge hits and a host of fan favourites.
Charting the highlights of the band's first three multi-platinum albums, Said And Done, A Different Beat, and Where We Belong, By Request spans the first four years of Boyzone's meteoric career. Reflecting the band's enormous success between 1994 and 1999, it sports fistfuls of Top Ten hits and six UK Number Ones, including 'Words', 'No Matter What', and the Comic Relief single, 'When The Going Gets Tough'.
What's more, it reveals the band's changing focus and a hint of the future with the inclusion of Ronan Keating's first solo outing, the Notting Hill movie theme, 'When You Say Nothing At All'. And while By Request topped charts across Europe and notched up six times platinum sales in the UK alone, it was to prove the band's last release before their split in early 2000.
