Limp Bizkit - Greatest Videoz / Greatest Hitz Review
by Morley Seaver

.
Fred Durst seems to have really divided the rock world. There are those that loath him for popularizing rap/rock, backward cap wearing, crotch tugging and point to violence at Bizkit concerts suggesting he is to blame. There are also those who respect him dragging along Limp Bizkit to the heights of the rock world.

You'll have to be the judge. The facts are the record has 14 tried and true Bizkit biggies, as well as three unreleased cuts. All the singles are here, from the covers of George Michael's "Faith" and The Who's "Behind Blue Eyes", to the stirring "My Generation" and "Break Stuff". My favourite Bizkit cut, "My Way" shows some of the strengths of the band, the confidence of Durst, along with the musicality of guitarist Wes Borland, bassist Sam Rivers, drummer John Otto and turntable wiz DJ Lethal. There are also three unreleased cuts, the most interesting is a mix of Motley Crue's "Home Sweet Home" and The Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony".

The video collection has some entertaining moments, most notably "Break Stuff" which features cameos from Snoop, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Pauley Shore and Jon Davis from Korn. The "Behind Blue Eyes" video is interesting as it follows the story lines from the movie Gothika. Durst directed this one which makes sense as he gets to make out with Halle Berry. Smart one Fred!

As always, the record buying public will be split on this but the fact remains there is some great music here. Fans will have everything on here except the unreleased cuts, but it's still nice to have everything on one complete disc. The DVD is also a worthwhile investment for fans and a great way for newbies to get introduced to the world of Limp Bizkit. The only complaint is that it's a video collection only. This is not a comprehensive Bizkit DVD with interviews, etc. It's pretty bare bones. However, it along was apparently put together without any involvement from the band, thus explaining the lack of extras.
