About this album

Greatest Hits is the second collection of hit songs by the band, albeit shorter than the previous release, Nothing Safe: Best of the Box. Greatest Hits was certified gold by the RIAA on November 30, 2005.[2] It was the last album released by Alice in Chains before the death of singer Layne Staley in 2002. Mike Starr plays bass on tracks 1-5, and Mike Inez on Tracks 6-10. The album cover features a photo of boxer Gene Fullmer.

The album received a mixed reception from critics, with reviewers criticizing the lack of songs and “Cash grab” nature of the album. Allmusic’s Steve Huey called the album “a lower-priced, ten-track sampler of Alice in Chains’ career.” Bill Adams of Ground Control Magazine questioned the integrity of the album, writing in his review “one has to wonder who this compilation was made for. When it was released in 2001, Alice in Chains had only gone for about six years without a new studio album, and fans had been kept interested with live albums, box sets and myriad other releases, so why put out something so plainly utilitarian?

    It is a rather piss-poor collection but it was probably really cheap.
