Fear Factory is one of the handfull of bands (along with Type O Negative and Sepultura among others) responsible for Roadrunner Records gaining notoriety before bands like Slipknot blew the label up even more so. Now with most of those bands not even with Roadrunner anymore, there have been a slew of "best of" compilations released by the label in an attempt to cash in even more so. As you've probably guessed, this "Best of Fear Factory" compilation hardly covers the best material the band ever released. Not to mention that their best album, "Soul of a New Machine" is hardly covered here at all, as well as the excellent "Demanufacture", which isn't done justice at all, while their more well known material, including the deliriously cheesy cover of "Cars" from "Obsolete" and fan favorite "Zero Signal", are here as well. That being said, if you already own every one of Fear Factory's releases, then you already know that this compilation is pretty much worthless. However, this is worth a look if you are a new listener to the band and want to give them a look. However, if you want to go down that route, the better thing to do would be to check out "Soul of a New Machine" and "Concrete".
