Limp Bizkit: Greatest Hitz

Sound — 6
Fred Durst is more a businessman than a front man or vocalist. He always attempts to devise new "plans" and "ideas" to sell the most records in the shortest amount of time. For instance, for the album "The Unquestionable Truth Pt. 1," Fred said that no campaigning or advertising would help sell the album due to the sense of mysteriousness. Fans were supposed to wonder why he never talked about the record, inticing them to purchase the album. Wrong, "The Unquestionable Truth Pt. 1" did not sell very well the first week. For "Greatest Hitz," Fred decided to use colors to attract people. He said that pink and white would work well to stand out amongst the usual dark, depressing, colors used by other artists today (isn't that what the cover of "The Unquestionable Truth Pt. 1" looked like Fred?) Did the album sell well within the first week, take a guess. Fred is not really a good composer as far as lyrics go. He goes as far as an adolescent would, even though he says they are supposed to be deep. We won't even get started with "Nookie." Being one of the most hated bands in the world, I think that they are doing pretty well so far.

The lyrics, not that much to discuss. Fred just rhymes for the sake of rhyming. There really are no hiding meanings, when he says something, it's exactly what you think he meant. Forget metaphors, forget anagrams, forget grammar. With Fred, even a kindergartener will be able to decipher all the hidden meanings, if any. From using lower case letters to spell "Limp Bizkit" to adding "z's" at the end of words, Fred does anything that seems cool enough to please the younger generation. Nothing to brag about here.

Overall Impression — 6
In all due honesty, this album would only be good if you never heard of Limp Bizkit which may come as a shocker to some. There are some good tunes from the early albums as well as some new tunes, three to be precise which are all good in their own respective manners but definitely no ground breakers. Make of this what you will.
