I mean, I love the red hot chili peppers, they are one of the greatest bands of all time but this greatest hits is a bit disappointing. i mean, none of the songs on here are bad, but they could have made a 2CD greatest hits bringing the whole 20 years of great music together, [and yes I know *What Hits?* And the other greatest hits '84-'89 could be bought for that] but to have a greatest hits that doesn't include anything off *Freaky Styley* or *The Uplift Mofo Party Plan* is just wrong.
Good idea to put videos for the singles on the Greatest Hits though

What can I say? One of the greatest rock bands in the world collaborates their best songs on one album. It's got to be good!!
The album includes amazing songs from the albums "By The Way", "Californication", "Mother's Milk" and "Blood Sugar Sex Magik". It also has a song from the five year period in which their brilliant guitarist, John Frusciante, left the band and was replaced with Jane's Addiction guitarist, Dave Navarro. You'll also find a few songs that don't appear on any other album.
However, I feel that some great songs have been missed off, such as:
"Warped" from One Hot Minute
"The Zephyr Song" from By The Way
"Can't Stop" from By The Way
"Around The World" from Californication
"Nobody Weird Like Me" from Mother's Milk
"Knock Me Down" from Mother's Milk
Unfortunately, they have chosen to concentrate on the latest line-up of the band (with Chad Smith on drums and John Frusciante on guitar), so there are no songs from the band's earlier period with (among others) Hillel Slovak and Jack Irons. This period includes such funky tunes as:
"Fight Like A Brave" from The Uplift Mofo Party Plan
"True Men Don't Kill Coyotes" from Red Hot Chili Peppers
"Behind The Sun" from The Uplift Mofo Party Plan
Although, I can't criticise this album too much as the bands founder members, Anthony Kiedas (vocals) and Michael "Flea" Balzary (bass), have been in the band since they began making records, so they're on every song!
With the band's raw energy, talent and in some cases downright craziness, this album definitely deserves your attention - and your money!

Actually, this album is not very disappointing. I can hear some of my favourite songs from their albums in just one album. Yet, there are great songs which aren't included in this album:
1)"Aeroplane" -Great song, I like the children voice, also the ending bass.
2)"Can't Stop" -It's much funkier than "By The Way".
3)"Love Rollercoaster" -Where the hell can I find this song in their album?!
4)"I could die for you" -Their most romantic song. EVER!!!
5)"All Around The World" -Why didn't they put this on this album???
6)"Shallow Be Thy Game" -It ROCKS!!! But it's a bit underrated.
I don't know why, but "My Friends" is the only RHCP's song with Dave Navarro. And we can also find "Higher Ground" in their old hits album "What Hits!?". Anyway, this is still such a great album to buy, because it contains great songs such as "Under The Bridge", "Give It Away", "Soul To Squeeze", "Road Trippin'", and also 2 (why's it only 2??!!) new songs, "Fortune Faded" & "Save The Population", which are really great to hear. I really hope this WON'T be their last album ever (as we can see in other bands/groups greatest hits albums which mean their FINAL album).

This compellation is an excellent collection of the greatest Chilis hits since 'mothers milk'(RHCP's 4th album.)i really enjoy listening to this album as it is a veriety of chilis stuff but all great chili peppers including the favourites - by the way, under the bridge, give it away, californication, my friends, higher ground and many more! it also incudes the non album track Soul to Squeeze and the new (2003) songs Fortune faded (which is regularly played live) and Save the population.

The booklet inside includes messages from the band who talk about thier influences and band pictures. This is a must have for a chilis fan or even someone that has only heard a couple of chilis songs!

Yep, this album has all the greatest hits from 1991-2002 (apart from Higher Ground [1989] which is in there for legal reasons), and what a fantastic selection. I don't think there are any duff tracks and you even get two previously unreleased songs. If you have'nt heard the Chilis before, this is a perfect place to start.

To clarify the last reviewer's comment about suitability, it has a parental advisory sticker for strong language and adult lyrics.

I did read all comments about the missing tracks and the half-pointless "copyright" movement, but then, it IS still worth buying, mainly if you're a casual fan. It does include some of their best songs, such as "Under the Bridge", "Californication", "Otherside" and "Give it Away", which are essential. But even so, excluding the Brilliant "Zepher Song", "Cant Stop" and "Areoplane" (as well as so many others) is kind of contradicting the title "Greatest Hits", especially to rid them to fit in some new tracks, which are OK, just not really Zepher-standard. I have come to realise the reason "Cant Stop" and "The Zepher Song" are not included due to the fairly recent album "By the Way" by which the record label chose to not include some tracks on "Greatest Hits" so that people will buy both. But yes, Greatest Hits should mean Greatest Hits.
