"Releasing an album like this does more disservice to P.E. than it helps. And for true hardcore fans, this isn't an album worth even looking at.Where are the real Public Enemy tracks on here that really symbolized what the group was all about. How in the hell do you even think of leaving off "Black Steel In The Hour of Chaos" which by far is the bangin-est track P.E. ever produced, followed by leaving off "Rebel Without A Pause". Who are these idiots who create these compilations? Not to mention "Burn Hollywood Burn" w/Ice Cube, "MIUZI WEIGHS A TON", Pete Rock's version of "Shut Em Down", Brother's Gonna Work it Out, the single inspired by the VA BEACH riots over a decade ago, "Public Enemy Number 1", and of course one of the most sampled drum tracks in hip hop, "B-Side Wins Again". I rate this a big fat ZERO. I couldn't get zero on Amazon so I'll give it a Zero in my review. A Group like P.E. deserved at least a double CD if not a 3 Disc Set. Don't waste your money. You'll come out better just buying all their albums."
Avoid this if you're a PE fan

"This is a poorly structured greatest hits collection, and it is not endorsed by PE. It completely disregards great songs from "Yo! Bum Rush the Show" as well as PE's later (and granted weaker) albums like "Muse Sick..." Even if the later albums are not quite as strong, there are gems on those albums that are ignored here. Wait for a collection that is blessed by Chuck, Flav, Terminator, and the S1W's."

"For those who care about such things you might be interested to know that (according to www.publicenemy.com) the band is not behind this CD. Apparently they also have a proper three disc set coming out soon.It'd be hard to make a bad PE compilation (because they made such good songs) but this CD is lacking."
