I've waited a long time for a "hits" collection from Cypress Hill, and now that it's out, I see that it's just as disappointing as the House Of Pain "Best Of" was. The reasons are many. There's ONLY 10 hits, only 12 tracks, only 50 or so minutes, and many missing tracks. It has three cuts from the debut, two from "Black Sunday", and then only one pick from each other album, if that? So I ask, where is "Pigs", "Born To Get Busy", "I Wanna Get High", "Hits From The Bong", "Illusions", "Can't Get The Best Of Me", and others? C'mon! On a positive note, what's here is all good, and this would be a decent start for a new fan, which is the point. Oh, and the full title is "Greatest Hits From The Bong", which we always knew it would be called.

Cypress Hill has always given their fans all that and then some; maybe that is why I am left wondering where disc 2 is in this package. This "greatest hits" compilation has only 9 songs from a group that has been putting out top-shelf albums for about 15 years. How can that possibly add up? Don't get me wrong, there isn't a bad song on this cd, but there is so much missing. What would've really worked well for the fans would have been a 2-disc package with the first having songs from cypress hill, black sunday, and temples of boom. The second could pick from IV, skull and bones, stoned raiders, and till death do us part. Also throw some live joints on there ("aint going out like that", "can't get the best of me") from the Fillmore show, and that would be more on the level with showing what the Hill is all about.

I have been waiting, patiently, for a new album from the Latin Thugs. When this album hit stores, I was kinda disappointed in it. Only 10 songs from all of their material, which base all the way back to 1989. It was disappointing that songs like "Pigs", "Lowrider", "Boom Biddy Bye Bye" and others songs that were classics, did not grace the album. However, the two brand new songs only make up for a small effort. But, for the die-hard Cypress Hill fan, like myself, it shows that they can still make great "hits from the bong". If you really love their music, this is for you. But, if you are looking for every single hit that they have had over the course of their career, then, this is definitely not for you.

This compilation has several, though not all, of the key cuts from their highly influential first two studiio LPs..

Cypress' Urban radio play diminished as time went on, with pop/rock soon to follow.. Still, there were plenty more songs from their later LPs that should have been included, like the 'Throw your hands in the air' Erick Sermon remix, 'Boom biddy bye bye' Fugees remix, 'Trouble' and 'What's Your Number'.. the new songs, including a reggaeton experiment, are admirable..

All in all, Cypress really deserves a 2-disc set-- Since they spent their entire career thus far on Columbia/Sony, One can only hope that there may be an "Essential Cypress Hill" on the way, maybe in 2006.

For now, listeners are encouraged to get the first 3 studio LPs, plus their first Remix EP (if it's still in print)..

i can go and pull out all my cd's and come up with over 80 minutes of music that would easily be a reasonable greatest hits album, but they cheepshotted us. Why? I don't know, other then to try and make a profit by having a couple new songs. I love Cypress Hill, but HATE this tactic.

Only reason i gave this cd 2 stars and not one is because i love the songs on here. Even though i have played each and every one to death before this cd came out, i was glad (previous to seeing the lacking track list) to see them finally release a greatest hits album. With efforts like this, they wonder why the music industry is suffering. give people what they pay for, a full cd, especially for those who had invested in all the prior cd's that allowed to make a greatest hits.

Im a die hard cypress hill fan , i have every album in their catologue. Their last record til death had mix views. But fans want their eagerly waited "lost temple" unrleased album from their time of temples of boom 1995. The album has not been reeased, instead we have a half done very weak done greatest hits. This album is 12 tracks incl 2 new tracks , which are not standouts. Which means we have 10 great teracks. WTF!!! , We are missing 12 more tracks at the least. This is not even half the greatest hits. You will save money and disapointment if you just buy their 1st three albums which come in a box set. I will give this 2.5/5 3 cuz you cant.

Usually on greatest hits , you have their best songs ... This album misses out 60 percent . And i seriously hope they dont bring out volume 2 instead of lost temples.

I wouldnt buy the album for the new tracks either.

I love C.H.'s music, but I agree with the majority, this was way to small. It was missing so many classics like "Pigs", "Roll it up, Light it up" and many more. It seems like they were too busy trying 2 promote some of their new stuff, which is fine, but greatest hits means just that, greatest hits, and the reality is most of their hits date back to the early 90's son

This is a really good collection of Cypress Hill's best songs, but it's a small amount. I was expecting more than just 12 songs. A little disappointing, but still alot of good songs. This will probably be the only Greatest Hits from Cypress Hill for a while. Until then, this will have to do.
