I like Better Than Ezra, I really do. I own CD's of "Deluxe" and "Friction, Baby", and if you don't yet have any BTE cd's, I'd recommend you buy those two instead of springing for this disappointing-sounding comp. There's a lot of good music on those two CD's that you'll be missing out on by going the 'greatest hits' route, plus a couple of the remixes on this CD are WORSE than the original versions! Cases in point:

- Porcelain: Take a sensitive, well-arranged piece of music as it appears on "Deluxe", and trash it up beyond recognition with an arrangement that's so out of character with the lyrics it's sadly funny - you have the "voodoo remix" that appears here. Pretty pitiful.

- "In The Blood": What's with all the extra noises here? The original song (again on "Deluxe") is much less cluttered and simply works better than the version on this comp.

You get the idea. My opinion is this: If you like BTE, make sure you at least have "Deluxe" and "Friction" in your collection. And if you just want one CD of theirs, then choose whichever of those you like. But don't cheat yourself by making this the only collection of BTE's music you own - they're really much Better Than This.

Everyone says that this album pretty much sucks and doesnt cover enough of bte's greater songs. But they had a lot of good songs! These are just the big radio lover's favorites other than laid and porcelain which are brand new (porclain's original version is found on deluxe) but this is a great starter album for anyone getting into the older bte! I mean it has wallflower and tremble on it and those are very hard to get since the artifakt album is rare and if you do find it, it costs a lot of money! Plus you have a lot of cool mixes and stuff here and i can tell that this time of year's new version was probably done around the time of closer because it sounds sort of like something off of that cd and it has the lyrics to get you in somewhere in the song...and also it has a lot of songs that werent as popular on the radio such as porcelain and the new versions of a lot of older hits! But still you need to have before the robots and deluxe somewhere in your collection because they are very good as well. And i must say this is a great opprotunity to get this cd for a decent price because for a popular greatest hits album this thing sure is hard to find! And even if you have all the other albums do not hesitate because the songs are different then what they use to be back in the 90's. This is a must-have for any ezra fan!

I was surprised when I looked through my music and discovered I didn't have the song Good. I did have a Better Then Ezra album, but it didn't have, Good; on it. I needed it because I wanted to work it up to play with my band. Pretty easy song to play, people like and dance to it when we play it. I think we cover it will.

This was the first CD I "burned" when CD burners were new... riding the bus in High School, this was my spot on my portable CD player. Every track is it's own masterpiece, with the climax being everyone's favorite "Desperately Wanting." It's amazing how music can take you back to the fond memories of another time and place.

I found this album to be appropriately titled, as it does contain all of Better Than Ezra's "greatest" "hits". On the other hand though, it probably would have been wiser to call the album "Goodest hits".

Just thought I'd let someone know that there's 16, not 15 tracks on this disc (I didn't have the box in front of me, but I was trying to find the track listings while I listened, and I realized a lot were like one off).

The 5th track is actually "Live Again" and then the rest of the tracks follow in the same order after that. I'm not sure why this error occurred on Amazon, but I hope someone fixes it. I'm pretty sure the back of my box is accurate though, or I would have noticed the first time I heard it...

I remember hearing songs like "Into the Bleed" and "Desperately Wanting" on the radio back in the day, so when i wanted to get an introduction to the band, I bought this as kind of a compass. What i found is that half of this album has some really good songs while the other songs are average at best.

When you put out a greatest hits package and half the songs aren't bad but they aren't that great either, it sends the message that you should stop at the greatest hits album and not look at the band's repertoire. Literally almost half of the songs sound amazing but the other half sound on the generic side. I never really liked the song "Good" in the first place but I expected their greatest hits to wow me a little bit more than it did; and it should not be an absurd expectation that a greatest hits album should have "cut-above" songs (an example of this caliber that's present is "King of New Orleans").

And so my final word is if I could give this 3.5 for the good songs I would but I'll give it 4 because like I said half of it's not bad, it's just easy to forget. I recommend this cd to anyone who likes alternative music, but I suggest you buy it at a cheap price as I did.
