Filter. The band that time forgot, literally.

I am not sure why, they put out a best of. They were planning on putting an album out in 2009, which was perfect timing, but it didn't come out till a year later.

This is a good collection of songs if you like hard hitting heavy rock music.
Its also a collection of songs, not in order of the bands musical career.

Including some rarer soundtrack songs.

Also on the inlay notes, some stories about Richard Patricks alcohol problems, and recordings and past band members.
To be quite honest, FILTER, would be in a far better place now, if Richard Patrick had not taken over the groups music so much, and let others write more. Or maybe if they were indeed "not contributing enough" which I find hard to believe, he should of encouraged them.

The problem with this band is their songs all too often sound the same or too similar.
There are two types of Filter songs, slow ones...really slow usually and then so heavy it hurts your hearing.

If I was choosing a trick list for this it would be 10 songs only, and much more like the following.

1. Dose
2. Captain Bligh
3. Whats Next
4. Take a picture
5. One
6. So I quit
7. Take another
8. Miss Blue
10. You Walk Away

Which I think the above is a far better perspective on the bands recordings.

One other thing is the guitarist that joined that gave the band a new angle on their sound Geno L is no not a member of the group and its a real shame.

So...all in all, its an alright CD. And for collectors of what Richard Patrick does (eg. Army of Anyone..) its a must of course.

But in truth...

I must admit that I was surprised to hear that melodic industrial rockers, Filter, were releasing a greatest hits compilation. Not just because I'd forgotten that they'd ever existed, but also because I didn't think they had enough hits to warrant such a release. After all, if I tried really, really hard I might have remembered "Hey Man, Nice Shot" and "Take A Picture." If my life had depended on it, I might even have squeezed The Crystal Method collaboration, "(Can't You) Trip Like I Do," from the depths of my memory, but that would have been it. However, there's fourteen tracks on offer here, so maybe I'm wrong. And maybe I'm not, as it turns out that the CD is filled out with album tracks and soundtrack contributions.

Just in case your memory is as vague about Filter as was mine, they first formed in 1993 when Richard Patrick, the erstwhile touring guitarist with Nine Inch Nails, linked up with guitarist/programmer Brian Liesegang, bartering his brief quantity of fame for a record deal, resulting in their debut album, Short Bus. It was a middling success off the back of the single "Hey Man Nice Shot," which became vaguely notorious as it was believed to be glorifying the public suicide of Pennsylvania state treasurer Budd Dwyer, although Filter themselves say it is actually a reaction to the suicide of Kurt Cobain. It's actually a very good song, largely due to the guitar melody, which had previously appeared in the Stabbing Westward song "Ungod," as Stuart Zechman was playing guitar for both bands at the time. And therein lies the problem with Filter. You see, they tend to sound an awful lot like other bands playing industrial rock, but without having a defining sound of their own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Filter: Greatest Hits CD (1995 -2008) 22 Mar. 2013

This cd is awesome. It features all Filter's geniune hit songs on 1 cd. Not many "Greatest Hits" albums by bands/singers actually achieve this. This Cd is great value for money. I highly reccomend it. Filter is the BOMB!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like your songs chockerblock full of anger, angst, and aggression then apply this Filter to your headphones. 26 Feb. 2015
By THowerton - Published on Amazon.com

The mini-bio of Richard Patrick and Filter in the album fold-out is informative and entertaining and certainly worth a read. It sheds light and development on a man and his musical journey of angst, anger, and raging for the sake of liking it, all the while drowning in alcoholism. And it goes to show that there’s some truth in the cliché “tortured souls make the best artists”. Also learning that he got his start working with Trent Reznor (NIN) was a surprise. As for me, I picked this up only because I had heard the heavy “Hey Man Nice Shot” and the superb and elegiac “Take A Picture” (which I always thought was about a son’s strained relationship with his father; turns out it’s about Patrick’s drunken behavior on an airplane and a plea for help: “Take a picture, because I won’t remember”) and I wondered if I would like a band’s songs who could pull off two very different sounds both of which I like? Yep! I sure do.

Blending a lot of electronica with heavy beats and sporadic screeching guitars many of these songs just seethe and surge. Patrick employs a great sense of timing to build and then pitch a fit. “Jurassitol” is a perfect example of this. But then again those sparser moments of more managed, harnessed, and melodic energy like on “The Only Way (Is the Wrong Way)” come close to some pure alternative pop bliss. He shows a lot of talent and creativity. I also find myself interested in actually hearing what Patrick has to say in his emotionally charged expressions such as on the thoughtful “Soldiers of Misfortune”, made more compelling because of the emotional weight with which he bastes the song. Almost all of these songs were new to me and after listening to this best of many, many times I found myself hitting repeat on a few of the songs but most often on the anthemic “Skinny”. I love how they build up to the chorus of defiance and belt out the vocals but at the same time they push the vocals down in the mix during the chorus; it’s a curious effect that draws attention to itself and heightens the rallying cry nature of the song.

I listen to a lot of music and I like a lot of it but I’m careful with what I grade a 5 star. As far as I’m concerned this has earned it. And I’m going to have to explore Filter’s catalog.

I forgot how good this band is...it took me back when I was younger. I love John 5 he's an amazing guitarist and this CD displays the bands wide range of talent and encapsulates their early career. I recommend this to people who like Staind and Disturbed.
