Sound — 5
Atreyu are a leading edge metalcore band, arguably the best in their sub-genre, and overlapping into others. Their sound is distinctive, if you played a song to a person into modern rock music, they could identify that it is Atreyu, and possibly even the track title. This 'Greatest Hits' CD/DVD, and I call it that loosely, is Victory Records for what they really are. You may or may not know that Atreyu are leaving the label, and this is Victory sucking all of the money out of the band. They did this without Atreyu's permission, and I defend the band. I would recommend that other bands signed to the label follow suit and look for a better label. I would give this a worse rating, but I have to admit there are a few decent songs on there, but as I own all three albums, I see no need for this CD. One for the completists.

It basically contains songs from all three albums, all of the released songs, which aren't that many, and other songs included just to fill up space on the CD, and to tempt people to buy it. The DVD is useful, if you want all of their vidoes which you can put on you iPodand other mp4 players, or just for general entertainment. Alex and Brandon are talented singers/screamers, I still really like the band, I just think that Victory are milking what talent Atreyu have to make millions, which is extremely immoral.
Overall Impression — 5
If you do not own any of the previous three albums, then I would recommend you buy this as a cheap introduction the the band over a large timescale, and then buy their older albums. Otherwise, avoid this fake attempt at ripping the general public off. If somebody stole this, which I doubt they would, I would not replace it, but I never would have bought it in the first place.
