AllMusic Review by

With only three albums under their belt (the group formed in 2001), Latin alternative metal collective Ill Niño don't really need a "greatest-hits" collection, but the masterfully titled 13-track Best of Ill Niño dutifully compiles some of the New Jersey-based rockers' better tracks on a single disc. Highlights from their debut ("If You Still Hate Me"), 2003's Confession ("How Can I Live"), and 2005's One Nation Underground ("This Is War") represent the group in all of its space/rap/emo/thrash metal glory, but the exclusion of fan favorites like "All the Right Words," "De la Vida," and "My Pleasant Torture" keep this collection from sounding like anything but a contractual commitment to Roadrunner.
