Album Review

A slight misnomer (no, not making a contention on what defines a "hit") in that Greatest Hits only covers the first three discs of the influential band's career. Some feel that the earlier material constituted the most creative and groundbreaking period of D.R.I.'s history, but even they would admit that 4 of a Kind and, especially, Thrash Zone had some fine moments. Instead of a single disc containing five or six tracks from each record and sparse, uninspired packaging, D.R.I. could have put together all three LPs (total running time is just over 110 minutes) and some previously unreleased material — there has to be some live stuff floating around, if nothing else — into a comprehensive two-disc package. That would have been great for the casual newcomer and old school fans looking for something extra.
