Well, here it is. A bit premature, but Sevendust are releasing their first "Greatest Hits" collection just eight years after releasing their excellent self-titled debut album. But here's the catch: This collection is being put out by TVT, the record company that Sevendust used to call home, until they switched to the Universal imprint, Winedark, this year for their fifth album "Next." Now, you know right off the bat that the band had absolutely no say in this, and that they are probably getting shafted on royalties as well (they obviously left TVT for a reason). I mean, they just released "Next" two months ago. Why interfere with their progress by putting out a "Greatest Hits" package?

If you are a faithful Sevendust listener, you most likely own all of their albums (the material on this only reaches as far as 2003's "Seasons" album), so the only reason to pick this up is for the rare, hard to get bonus tracks. Songs like "Coward" and "Rain" and the covers of "Inner City Blues" and "School's Out" (originally done by Marvin Gaye and Alice Cooper, respectively) are no doubt hard to track down, but by sniffing around a few Sevendust fansites, I found these songs with ease. The Tom Lord-Alge Mix of "Waffle" is nothing too special, as it is basically the same song, with very slight variations that only someone who has heard the song hundreds of times could discern. As for the overall selection, it really doesn't capture Sevendust at their best. Yes, it's all fantastic material, and the classics like "Black," "Denial," "Angel's Son" and "Enemy" are all here, but other singles like "Broken Down," "Licking Cream," "Terminator" and "Live Again" are not only among the band's best work, but definitely show the many sides and dynamics to this group that this collection ignores.

First off, let me say that I am a big fan of Sevendust and the majority of the material found here is great. But the problem is, the music isn't the point of this release. The reason for this disc is greed. Recently TVT records and the band have, as you doubtlessly already know, parted ways. And it wasn't on what one would call, friendly terms. As such, the former felt it appropriate to milk the Sevendust cow to the point of death with this release. And even that wouldn't be so bad if they hadn't so clearly only chosen songs that were played on the radio (there's a difference between a "Greatest Hits" and a "Best of" compilation), though, admittedly, the songs here are good. And of course, to sucker consumers like me into purchasing this utterly unnecessary collection, TVT has included the token "bonus tracks." Okay, I'll be the first to admit that these songs are good, with the exception of "Coward" which sounds a little too much like another song from "Seasons" and showcases lyrics that are, to put it politely, pretty stupid. On the other hand, "Rain" is arguably the high point of the extra material, though the two covers nicely display the band's more eclectic yet distinctive side. But with only four "new" songs, it is hardly worth the time. If TVT really understood their demographic, they could have used more. Where are "Fall" and "Corrected"? Where is "Number One (The Ballad)"? Or how about their underrated cover "Goin' Back to Cali"? Or the superb "Leech"? Perhaps if TVT had opted to issue a b-sides and rarities collection instead of this, my rating (and opinion of them in general) would be slightly higher. Unfortunately, that is not the case. What we are left with is a sensation of unpleasant familiarity provided by corporate heads with an itch for more cash.Read more ›

The Good

This compilation is arraigned chronologically from the group's debut self-titled album to their last studio release Seasons. The thunderous riffs and driving digital effects of "Black" is what introduced Sevendust to the rock lexicon. From there it was full speed ahead. "Bitch" switches things up with a mix of clean arpeggios mixed with balls-to-the-wall riffage. "Denial" displays Sevendust's transition into a more melodic sound. The group still manages to keep it heavy on "Assdrop." Lajon Witherspoon's vocal ability shines as he abandons the shouting for calming, pleasing, and melodic tones on the touching ballad "Angel's Son."

Don't mistake Sevendust's one ballad for them going soft on you. "Praise" hits you right in the teeth with plenty of punch, and a catchy, anthemic chorus. "Enemy" is the best representation of the group today. It's a perfect blend of their early intensity and their current melodic flair. There are 12 hits in all, and four bonus tracks. "Coward" and "Rain" are B-sides from Seasons, and their Marvin Gaye cover of "Inner City Blues" is from a bonus DVD that was included with that release. "School's Out" is a B-side track from a promo for the first Sevendust album.

The Bad

This CD is clearly TVT's was of cashing in on Sevendust's past success and probably part of letting them out of their contract. I guess the biggest slap in the face is that this collection was released while Sevendust is trying to push their latest album Next. Looking through the booklet it's evident that the band didn't have much to do with this release, and it must suck for them that TVT owns all the rights to their hits. "School's Out" is too different from the original for me. Its signature Sevendust, but the chord rearrangements distances it from the original.

The Verdict

Listening to this collection reminded me just how much I love the intensity and raw power that is Sevendust.
