Listening to it right now. Very 80's vibe to it...

This band has continuously thrown Flesh & Bone into the ground. Seriously? If they're going to put anything other than Runaways, the only two songs that are worthy of mention for "greatest hits" off BB are F&B and Miss Atomic Bomb. What a disgrace.

Where the hell is Jenny? Bones? Tranquilize? Tracklisting gets an F.

I like the new song though.

New song's good. This greatest hits screams either getting out of a contract, or an excuse to tour.

A Dustland Fairytale isn't much chop. This Is Your Life would have been a much better representative from Day & Age, I reckon

But A Dustland Fairytale was actually a hit. Just like Jenny, and Bones.

Thing is... all of it is somewhat justifiable. Three songs from each album.

It's the song selection from BB that's laughable. And perhaps the lack of recognition for Sawdust.

Bones sucks anyway. lol. The River Is Wild deserves to be in there though.

But... Greatest Hits collection after only 4 albums??

ETA: Ohh it's the end of a decade... well, fair enough I guess.

Bones is the only real exclusion from the album in terms of singles. Personally, I'm sort of glad that it isn't a complete representation of every one of their singles though. Things like Jenny Was a Friend of Mine and or the Sawdust singles (Shadowplay and Tranquilize) can still be discovered after buying the other albums, you know?

I'm sort of happy The Way It Was was included as the "non-single" for the album, probably due to its reception during the live shows this past year. Considering that Here With Me didn't do anything chart-wise, I don't think it's too big of a loss there.

I didn't notice the lack of Jenny... That's inexcusable.

But is it? If you had to choose three songs from Hot Fuss, aren't those three fair too? As much of a favorite that Jenny is...
