Album Review

Six months after Limp Bizkit released The Unquestionable Truth, Pt. 1 to near universal apathy — which is what can happen when you release an album without any promotion — the band rushed out the compilation Greatest Hitz, a generous 17-track stroll through the past. Frankly, it's hard to imagine how this collection could have been executed better. While this may not contain anything from The Unquestionable Truth, Pt. 1 — which is actually kind of too bad, since it was a much better album than its 2003 predecessor, Results May Vary, but a cardinal rule of hits (or hitz) albums is that they should contain songs that people actually heard — it does contain every major MTV or active rock hit the group had. Two minor charting singles are MIA — 2000s "Crushed" and 2004's "Almost Over," to be precise — but anything anybody remembers is here. There's their first single, "Counterfeit"; there's "Faith," the first of their never-ending series of embarrassing covers, is here, along with their worst ("Behind Blue Eyes") and their latest (a monumentally silly medley of Mötley Crüe's "Home Sweet Home" and the Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony" — one of three new songs here — that sounds as if it were recorded alone by Fred Durst on Apple's GarageBand application); there are the big hits "Nookie," "Break Stuff," "Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle)," "My Way," and "My Generation"; and there's "Take a Look Around," their contribution to the Mission Impossible 2 soundtrack, which is less forgettable than the three selections from Results May Vary. None of this has aged well — as a matter of fact, it's aged incredibly quickly, sounding older than alt-rock hits from the mid-'90s — but that's almost beside the point, because this does its job well, and listeners who want to have some Limp Bizkit in their collection will find this to provide them with more of what they want than any other Bizkit dizc. [Greatest Hitz was also released in a clean version, which removes Durst's many profanities.]

come on poeple stop being babies

grow up, lb rocks people just can't except that the world might have different kinds of music. rap-metal is one of them. so live with the fact that you can listen to different stuff.

Greatest Hitz & a Couple Misses

"Greatest Hitz" is the equivalent of a triple, but not quite a home run. While most of the big "hits" are here - "Nookie", "Rollin", etc - a couple singles are missing, such as "Sour" and "The Truth." Also, "Build a Bridge" was never released as a radio single, nor did it have a video, so it's existance on this CD is puzzling. Also of note, "Counterfeit" is shortened from the original version. The 3 "new" tracks on "Greatest Hitz" are much the same, as "Home Sweet Home" is an unexpected remix of the Motley Crue hit, but "Why" & "Lean on Me" sound like the current, boring sound being played on modern rock radio. Staind fans will be happy, but Bizkit fans expecting funky guitar riffs from Wes Borland or innovative samples from DJ Lethal might be let down. If you already own any of Limp Bizkit's discography, pick and choose from the "Greatest Hitz" album to complete your hits collection. If you don't own a Limp Bizkit CD, "Greatest Hitz" puts the 4 albums and 1 EP released by the band into a nice package. My recommendation is download "Home Sweet Home", and sit tight for the next chapter of Limp Bizkit...

Sophomoric, derivative music (no longer) for the masses

Admit it: 2001 was a dark place. Nine Inch Nails was gone, Radiohead selling less and less, and the Smashing Pumpkins broke up. Alternative music was effectively dead. I suppose nü-metal was the next financially plausible route. Ripping off both rap and tasteless rock, this band fumbled its influences so bad, it offended them (see: The Verve, The Who). Now the year is 2005, and the weather has been sunnier. NIN went multi-platinum, Radiohead are recording prolifically, and even Billy Corgan brought is bald head into the sunshine to announce the reunion of the Smashing Pumpkins. Stear clear of this disc, unless you're planning on looking into this dark period of popular music.

Biography

Formed: 1994 in Jacksonville, FL

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

The rap-metal outfit Limp Bizkit was formed in Florida in 1994 by vocalist Fred Durst and his friend, bassist Sam Rivers. Rivers' cousin John Otto soon joined on drums, and guitarist Wes Borland completed the original foursome (later supplemented by DJ Lethal). After Korn played the Jacksonville area in 1995, bassist Fieldy got several tattoos from Durst (a tattoo artist) and the two became friends. The next time Korn were in the area, they picked up Limp Bizkit's demo tape and were so impressed...
