Reception[edit]

"A slightly confusing package," suggested Classic Rock. "For while claiming to sidestep the band's 70s material in favour of the group's later, outside-writer-bolstered tunes, the compilers just couldn't resist including 'Dream On' and 'Walk This Way'… There's a great version of The Doors' 'Love Me Two Times', 'Livin' on the Edge' sees the band stomp assuredly into the 90s, and even the bubblegum ballad 'Crazy' is delivered with a conviction that is beguiling."[4]
