Faves is Renée Geyer's eleventh solo album and second greatest hits collection, covering her entire ten years with Mushroom Records. This rounded out her contract and for the next ten years Geyer pursued her career in Los Angeles, California, the home of the soul/R&B that she loved. Apart from including all of the hits up to that time, this includes three singles not released on any previous album nor any since then. They are her lone excursion into new wave/hard rock on "Hot Minutes", and Geyer's last two Mushroom singles "Love So Sweet" and "Trouble in Paradise". Initially issued on vinyl, this album was divided into a 'Dance' side and a 'Romance' side.
