Considering that Snow's career crashed around the release of his second album, Murder Love, a record that didn't even chart, it might seem that the release of a Greatest Hits album is a little misleading. After all, he had only one album, 12 Inches of Snow, that produced any hit singles, of which there was a grand total of exactly two: "Informer" and "Girl, I've Been Hurt." Naturally, those two songs are included on The Greatest Hits of Snow, along with an assortment of 11 other songs that range from album tracks to failed singles like "Sexy Girl." Anyone with any interest in Snow -- whether they're a long-term fan or a casual listener who liked the mock-ragga of "Informer" -- will probably be equally satisfied by The Greatest Hits of Snow or 12 Inches of Snow, since they contain the same hits surrounded by similar filler, and both illustrate why Snow couldn't successfully follow those two catchy hits.
