A perfect greatest hits album.
on March 23, 2005
This is a perfect greatest hits album because:
a) it provides all the important songs of the artist's career...
b) it provides remastered versions of said songs
c) it is sequenced as if it should be played in its' entirety...the song order matters
d) it demonstrates artistic growth, increasing your appreciation for the artist
e) it provides context of that artist within their genre and other genres
and f) at least three times you will say, out loud, "that was awesome", when listening to it.
The dexterous wordplay, the thundering beats, the hysterical humor...so many artists, from the rap world to the rock (could Linkin Park even exist without, say, "Rock Box" or "Walk This Way"?) owe their careers to these three musicians.
There is nobody, nor will there ever be anybody, like Run D.M.C. They were the best at what they do, and this disc is proof.
