2 stars Nope, even if you're desperate enough and wanna find how Dream Theater sounds like, beware the mistake I did and avoid this album at all costs. If you want to start with Dream Theater, start with Scenes from a Memory, or with Images & Words, or even with Black Clouds, but for prog's sake, Greatest Hit(s) ? The most innovative and interesting thing about this album is its name. Because if you'll start with this, you won't get much fun. Or maybe I'm too influenced by this band, but how one came to some band that he know is favourite, good and well known, but he don't know anything about it ? Charts somewhere, friends recommendations or maybe chart - still, he will start with some of albums I've mentioned. No, he won't made a mistake to start with Systematic Chaos, or something like that.

2(+), because still, they are DT songs, even it's useless album. Take this review's opinion as that it is absolutely not important album, but if you stumble over it and don't have any other DT albums, you'll be maybe pleased. A little bit, because you won't witness true experience as you would have with real albums.
