I’m what you would call a very casual fan of Limp Bizkit. I don’t own any of their albums, but I’m familiar with all of these songs as I used to hear them all of the time on the radio and from friends. I picked up this album because Limp Bizkit is a fun, entertaining band. They aren’t meant to be taken as some ultra-serious metal band. And they aren’t supposed to be straight up metal. Obviously, they have other elements besides rock to their music.
Anyway, for me, like many others, this is all the Limp Bizkit I need. It has all the songs you would expect like “Faith”, “Nookie”, “Break Stuff”, “Rollin’”, “My Generation”, “Take A Look Around”, and “Behind Blue Eyes” among others. This collection really could not have been put together better than this. It has everything you would want from this band. It also has three new songs as a bonus, including a mix of Motley Crue’s “Home Sweet Home” and The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony”.
This album gives a good and accurate representation of their career and what they’re about. It has 2 from “Three Dollar Bill, Y’all”, 4 from “Significant Other”, 5 from “Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water”, 3 from “Results May Vary”, and 3 new songs.
In the end, I’m sure we’ll have many bad reviews for this album just because people love to bash Limp Bizkit. Some of it is just, but a lot of it is just people jumping on the band-wagon. This is a good CD to throw on at a party or just to have something fun to listen to.
