4.0 out of 5 stars Biggest Costa Rican Fan of Knot comment., August 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Antennas to Hell (Special Edition) (Audio CD)
For me Slipknot is the best band in the planet! But I hate when bands release their Greatest Hits with nothing new (new tracks or re-edit versions) I have to say it. Sorry but looks pretty awesome in my CD - DVD Collection!

I couldn't agree more. There is nothing here that I personally want. I already own every single song and album, and I just don't get into live versions, unless i'm at a show. You'd think they could have put four or five new songs on this, what the crap! I love Korn too, but they got into this horrible habit of releasing "Greatest Hits" CDs, and went overkill on it, and when they put obscure tracks on it, it was still stuff that already available before, on soundtracks.
I realize Paul is dead, and that is unfortunate and sad, so maybe I'd understand not wanting to record some new material for a greatest hits CD like this. But, I absolutely refuse to believe that Slipknot does not have some "B-Sides", some unreleased songs that they've tucked away somewhere! When a band records a new album, it's very rare for them not to have too many songs to fit on the new album, and so they save them. In all the years that Slipknot has been making music, who would believe they don't have some unreleased tracks, sitting on a hard drive or CD, in some studio or one the member's house? I know I sure as crap don't believe that.

To me, these greatest hits CDs, with absolutely no new material on them, are nothing more than a quick paycheck, without having to put forth any effort. And honestly, i'm always a little insulted when bands release these CDs. I guess if you don't currently own all of the band's albums, and you want a collection of all of the best songs (which is quite subjective), and want some new live tracks, then I guess this album is the "Cat's Meow" to you, and so be it. But I don't personally understand liking a band, and not owning all of their album's that contain all of these songs already, money permitting, of course. Plus, I'm a little famished, just waiting on a new album from Slipknot. And, if they aren't going to release anything ever again because of Paul, well, at least let us know! They all did their side-projects forever too, before the last album, which yeah, great, I didn't start listening to Slipknot so I could listen to you in another band. Sometimes I think they take for granted, just how long we're willing to wait for a new album.
