2 stars This piece has not been released yet but i feel free to rate it because this is a compilation album and I know all the songs and the clips. The choice hasn't been big for the band, since they made very few videos throughout their career and rather not to their best songs. I'll barely call any of them a classic and a must-hear (or must-see). Even Pull me Under which was their biggest hit is not really such a good song as most people call it. It's a pretty straightforward metal song, moreover butchered from above 8 to under 5 minutes for the MTV-friendly clip. The other songs are good pop-metal songs but there is nothing overly progressive in them, as the band selected the more radio-friendly material for singles and videos. Generally, rather forgettable compilation, unless you're a true big fan of the band and MUST have all their release and you don't have their videos yet. But others can skip it.
