With a band that could rock your butt off and then give you some of the most heartfelt ballads and then add some synth, they always kept you wondering. To the press and the critics the acoustic love song 'Love Is On The Way' will forever define the band. This is sad bacause Saigon Kick fans know that there was far more to the band than that song. This cd takes the music of a glorious career and gives you a sample of everything the band had to offer. Jason Bieler is one of the greatest musicians of the modern era. His guitar solors are blistering and the riff to the harder songs make you stand up and take notice that you are listening to something truly special. Matt Kramer (while in the band) had a vocal presence that many vocalists only dream of. Even when he left the band and Bieler took over vocals, he proved a worthy replacement.
The rock ballads 'Love Is On The Way', All I Want Is You', 'Colors' and 'I Love You', carry you away to a different world (which is exactly what a ballad is supposed to do). Tracks like 'Hostile Youth', 'The Lizard' and 'One Step Closer' rock you hard and demand your attention. 'Water' throws a total curve ball at you and almost has a Prince vibe to it. The newest track not on the band's other discs 'Hey! Hey! Hey!, is a fun fist pounding rock anthem (do you remember when rock was still fun?). This album spans the carrer of one of the greatest musical and lyrical bands to have come around in a long time. The purchase of this disc will only leave you wanting more Kick. So fill your collection by buying "Saigon Kick", "The Lizard", "Water" and "Devil In The Details". There are a pair of imports out there as well.
I will leave you with this note. If you want a record that you can play over and over again, this is your band. If you want the same boring every song sounds the same disc, then go buy one of todays rock artists. Saigon Kick is one of the greatest bands to have come and gone. So purchase and enjoy!!![.]

Now, let me start by saying that I do not own this album, however, I do own all of the studio releases, and there are no 'unreleased' songs on here, so I've heard them all. Saigon kick is an extremely underrated band. The reason I only give this album a 4 our of 5 is because there are some huge omissions for an album titled the 'best of'. I was really shocked that the song 'Still the One' was not put on this album. It was never released on any of the studio albums, and it is certainly one of their best (and possibly their last recorded song). Some other tracks that should have made it are 'Meet Your Maker' and 'Jehovah' (from the import album Bastards); 'Dizzy's Vine' (the last song recorded with original singer Matt Kramer), 'Spot Him A Beer' and 'You and I' (from Moments From the Fringe ); 'Sunshine' and 'Afraid' (from Devil in the Details); 'When You Were Mine' (from Water); 'Feel the Same Way', 'Freedom', and 'All Alright' (from The Lizard); and finally, 'My Life' (which includes a kazoo harmony) and 'Love Of God' (from Saigon Kick).

I've been following Saigon Kick's music since I heard 'Love Is On The Way', as well as Jason Bieler's music in general. I think it is a disgrace that the band is known most widely as "that 80's hair band that did 'Love Is On The Way'", especially since none of their albums were released before 1991, with the last studio release 'Bastards' coming out in 1999. There was so much more to the band than that one song, even though I admit that was the song that made me go out and buy 'The Lizard' album.

I was a little shocked when 'Water' was released and Matt Kramer had left the band. The way he and Jason harmonized together was amazing.

Great CD, although I recommend buying the first two SK cd's instead of the Greatest Hits, you'll get more good songs and will love them both. Matt Kramer and Phil Varone ARE this band...making The Lizard and self-titled CD's the best put out so far. So pick up those two. Also, Saigon Kick is currently on tour with original bassist Tom Defile, and new guitarist Jeff Blando (Slaughter), so go check em out!

Here's a great sampling from a rather forgotten blast from the musical past, Saigon Kick. Its a shame that this happens, too, because I would state that all of Saigon Kick's albums and the stages they went through, from their somewhat heavier/somewhat more controversially beloved beginnings to their last release that combined electronics and their wonderful vocal usages, are interesting notations. Still, many fans found Water and Devil in the Details betrayals of what they liked most about SK, not to mention the fact that the two lead influence collapsed back into the one-man singer sea.
The new addition on this album, "Hey,Hey,Hey," is not one of my favorite pieces that the band has released into circulation, making me a little annoyed at the product in some ways. It really isn't reflectant of the band and their abilities at all. Still, the range of influences, coming from Saigon Kick, The Lizard, Water, and Devil in the Details are well arranged and are a nice selection to make a "best of" out of. The only thing I would have left out of it would have been the live songs, because I'm not really a fan of the live songs, and the additions I would have added would have been those that echo a little more depravity in the works, including "Sentimental Girl" (Water), "My Dog" (The Lizard), "Peppermint Tribe" (Water), and "Month of Sundays" (Saigon Kick). Any of those would have shown more of the oddity that the band can add to their songs, which is echoed somewhat in the lyrical innerworkings of "coming Home" (placed, if anyone's interested, in the rather funny to watch "Stone Cold, " featuring Brain Bosworth as an "actor" instead of a "football player") and the "Lizard," the angst within "hostile Youth," and the things someone would be willing to do for love in "Close to you.
