From 1999's Music Bank box set and its one-CD compilation offshoot, Nothing Safe: The Best of the Box to a 1996 Unplugged CD, the Alice in Chains titles continue to arrive even while the band--and especially reclusive frontman Layne Staley--stagnates. The quartet's heavy, dirgelike music is aging well, but the 10 songs that comprise Greatest Hits are the basic radio hits. Greatest Hits features no new music, no liner notes, no lyrics, no new photos, and no elaborate packaging. Still, for the rock fan, every song on the disc (five of them penned solely by talented guitarist Jerry Cantrell) is a bona fide hit, from the band's earliest, their 1990 breakthrough "Man in the Box," to the lush orchestration of "I Stay Away" to 1995's dark pop gem "Heaven Beside You." Greatest Hits provides a quick fix for newer fans, but with The Best of the Box boasting 9 of Greatest Hits' 10 songs, plus an additional 5 selections. Skip Hits and go for The Best. --Katherine Turman

"Trying to reduce AIC's output to 10 tracks is like trying to reduce Zep or The Stones to 20 tracks- hang it up. So what I was hoping for, since I have all their original cd's, was something sonically superior. What I got was a very uneven sound that moved from marginally dynamic with a briefly decent inter-song soundstage, to completely lifeless as though it was being streamed from a 128k mp3- ouch! And the results have been the same from system to system. And no- grunge is not about sounding shoddy.
Somebody with decent hearing/sacd mixing skills desperately needs to redo this one- or better yet do the whole catalog."
