5.0 out of 5 stars RIP Dime, and my explanation for 5 stars, December 12, 2004
This review is from: The Best of Pantera: Far Beyond the Great Southern Cowboy's Vulgar Hits (Audio CD)
I'll give my review first, then take a moment about Dime(yea, this space is for a review of the music but who cares)....my reasoning for 5 stars..First, (and I know I'm biased, but if you're a Pantera fan, you'll understand)..every song on here is good..no doubt..it's Pantera..I'm hard pressed to find a bad Pantera song, but the ones on here are definitely good..people like to whine that they want more..well, chances are if you're a Pantera fan, you probably already have every CD they put out, so why do you care? And if you're looking to get someone into Pantera, this is certainly a decent way to start it(of course I, and I'm sure most of you would also recomend some other tunes not on here for them to listen two)..Also, you get a freaking DVD..all the videos..yea, you can catch all of them on the Watch It Go DVD, BUT you get ALL of the videos WITH the CD...for what....14 bucks? When I got mine at Best Buy last year, it was $11.99....a total steal!...anyway, that's my take..and as for what happened with Dime goes...Well, I was lucky enough to catch Pantera on the Live 101 Proof tour back in '98..and was fortunate to obtain a pass for after the show...all the guys were nice, especially Dime and Vinnie..Dime was larger than life, but didn't have the attitude to go with it...Down to Earth guy that was more than happy to give up autographs, beers, and to talk music..when you talked to him, he didnt treat you as a fan..he was a fan himself... you knew you were talking to a fan of the music man..OUR music(that's for all of you..we metal people are a tight knit group)..I'll remember Dime for his music, being influenced by him, and how I actually got to see what he was like as a person..my thoughts go out to his fans, friends, and family ..and to especially Vinnie Paul...RIP Darrell Abbott..you will not be forgetten..your music will be around forever, whether from you, or the sounds in other bands you've influenced

if you are a pantera fan, you probably have the albums already, and know how useless the greatest hits is.
