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."
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
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.Read more ›
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
6. F__king Hostile
7. This Love
8. Strength Beyond Strength
10. 5 Minutes Alone
11. I'm Broken
13. Drag The Waters
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.
With a Bonus DVD included, you will be able to watch the following music videos:
Cowboys from Hell
Mouth For War
5 Minutes Alone
Drag the Waters
Primal Concrete Sledge (live)
Revolution Is My Name
Make sure you make this cd a part of your collection right now.

In the age of free MP3 downloads I am happy to see a killer band spend the money to release a greatest hits album. This is a great album packed with some of their best. Read morePublished on May 13 2004 by Advanced
This may be because Pantera is one of the best bands, ever, but that don't make no difference. The song selection is great. Read morePublished on April 29 2004 by HeadbangerDuh
Of the 1,000+ metal CD I own, this is in the bottom five. This band is just a bunch of uneducated hicks with jingoistic, fourth-grader lyrics. Read morePublished on March 20 2004 by Brasington
