1 stars Keep in mind the the title of this is called "Greatest Hit (and 21 other pretty cool songs)".

This is a 2-disc set with "Pull Me Under" and 21 "pretty cool" songs. Not GREAT songs. "Pretty cool songs". Obviously this is not a compilation.

Compilations are collections of a band's best work. There are some great songs on here, no doubt, but, in all intensive purposes, every true Dream Theater fan has all their albums (even the mildly mediocre "Falling Into Infinity" and, yes, even the dreaded "When Dream And Day Unite"). What need is there for a compilation?

Well, best guesses serve to point to the media and the radio. DT's only spotlight of fame was when MTV showed a video of Pull Me Under in 1992 (back when they still showed music videos). Nothing since. Frankly, not only is this one of the few bands in history that shows variations in their albums, yet every fan has all of them, but this is also one of the few bands that does not need the radio (or radio edits for that matter) to make s***loads of money and achieve fame.

Regardless, this is really only for newcomers of the band, or better yet, for your smoking hot girlfriend to introduce the band to so that you both have the same musical interests which can only intensify the relationship.

Hell, that's definitely worth the price of $14.
