3.0 out of 5 stars It's good, but posesses many flaws June 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is, in my opinion, not the true greatest hits from Pantera. It is a good listen, but it has it's share of flaws. These flaws are:
1. This album has too many songs from Reinventing the Steel. It's not that RITS is not a good album, it's awesome. But they could have left more room for Vulgar Display of Power, their best album.
2. ONLY ONE SONG FROM THE GREAT SOUTHERN TRENDKILL! "Drag the Waters" is a great song, but where's "Sandblasted Skin," "Suicide Note Pt. 2," and "War Nerve?"
3. "Where You Come From" is not truly a necessary song to put on.
Overall, this album is good, but the issue I have is that it has too much from RITS and not enough from VDOP. BUY THE STUDIO ALBUMS IF YOU WANT THE REAL "GREATEST HITS."

4.0 out of 5 stars Thrash With This July 12 2004
By Byron
Format:Audio CD
If you like any kind of metal , the members of Pantera, Philip Anselmo, Dimebag Darrel, Vinnie Paul and Rex have the ultimate Pantera mix.
This cd has baddass songs from Vulgar Display of Power, Far Beyond Driven and more. This cd is great and a must have for any metal fan.
This cd includes screamin vocals, shreddin guitar solos, smashin drums and rummblin bass action

Don't get me wrong, I knew who Pantera was. And thanks to Beavis and Butthead and Headbanger's Ball I'd even seen some of their videos a few times. Yet I was never motivated to go out and buy their CD's. I wasn't really into metal much at the time of their zenith in popularity (I was more into hard rock than metal). This album has shown me that I was missing out, but I don't have to miss out entirely.
Its neat to hear and read about the progression of the Pantera sound as well. The Cowboys from Hell songs definitely have a different feel than the Vulgar Display of Power songs or the Far Beyond Driven songs. Based on the tunes chosen, they seemed to go from a more melodic metal feel with a definite metallica/megadeth sound in the earlier days to an almost hardcore style with a mix of their own takes on metal that wouldn't be out of place with some of the popular bands of today.
I'm very taken aback by the range of the vocalist, Philip Anselmo. At times he can really croon, and sing very clear and well. Almost comforting. At other times he can growl with the best of them, and sound as menacing as a lunatic. A really good range. I especially enjoy how he can portray the frustrations of life in such ranges, sometimes all in the same song. Color me very impressed by somone who I had originally dismissed as all growls and grunts.
I've always known that Dimebag Darrell was a respected guitar player, and this CD gives a pretty good sample of why that is. Tons of pinch harmonics and wailing solos, and great meaty riffs as well.
As well, their overall recorded sound was very good. The producer and mixer on those things should be commended, and many modern hard rock/metal bands should take some cues from these guys.

1.0 out of 5 stars This Is NOT The Best Of Pantera! April 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
I hope to God this album was not put together by the band itself... If so, they have been on the "101 Proof" for a few too many years! This "Best Of" CD is a disgrace! How can you leave out songs like: "A New Level", "Strength Beyond Strength", and "Slaughtered"??? And, to leave off my own personal metal anthem "F__king Hostile" is absolutely insane.
All of that is bad enough, but to replace those great tracks with worthless cover songs like "Cat Scratch Fever" (which is a note for note copy of Nugent's song, by the way... You'd be better off listening to the original), and b-side tracks like "Where You Come From" (which wasn't even good enough to go on an actual studio album so they stuck at the end of their live album).
A better track listing for a Cd like this would have been:
1. Cowboys From Hell
2. Cemetary Gates
3. Mouth For War
4. A New Level
5. Walk
6. F__king Hostile
7. This Love
8. Strength Beyond Strength
9. Becoming
10. 5 Minutes Alone
11. I'm Broken
12. Slaughtered
13. Drag The Waters
14. Floods
15. Dom/Hollow (live)
16. Goddamn Electric
17. Revolution Is My Name
18. I'll Cast A Shadow
(and, maybe "Electric Funeral" at the end, if there was room)
The above CD would have been perfect. The CD they are trying to sell you is crap, don't waste your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is it Pantera, as it's best.....? Feb. 26 2004
By HBN
Format:Audio CD
Two words can easily answer that question...."You Bet." And so the run for Pantera is over, and has been for quite some time, and like most Popular bands...a "Best Of.." Album is released. But it is indeed a fight between fans on whether the best songs are chosen right. And in this case, as a fan, I will agree that this is the best of Pantera. From start to finish with the hits including "Cowboys From Hell," "Walk," and even "This Love" have made this album a certain must have. You will positively satisified by the selection, which will lead to endless metal hits from one of the greatest bands alive.
With a Bonus DVD included, you will be able to watch the following music videos:
Cowboys from Hell
Psycho Holiday
Cemetery Gates
Mouth For War
This Love
Walk
5 Minutes Alone
I'm Broken
Drag the Waters
Domination (Live)
Primal Concrete Sledge (live)
and even...
Revolution Is My Name
Make sure you make this cd a part of your collection right now.
