Guns N' Roses' Greatest Hits may bear all the hallmarks of a hastily assembled compilation -- there are no liner notes, the cardboard packaging is flimsy, the remastering isn't notable -- but it does offer all the band's biggest hits: "Welcome to the Jungle," "Sweet Child O' Mine," "Patience," "Paradise City," "Don't Cry," "You Could Be Mine," "November Rain," and "Live and Let Die" among them. While there are certainly several noteworthy tracks missing -- charting singles like "Nightrain" and "Estranged," and essential album tracks like "It's So Easy," "Mr. Brownstone," and "Used to Love Her," for instance -- for listeners who want a collection containing the group's biggest hits on one disc, this disc will serve their needs nicely. (Of interest to diehards is the band's cover of the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil," previously only available on the Interview With the Vampire soundtrack and making its first appearance on a GN'R album here.) ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
