AllMusic Review by

This well-selected 16-song compilation culls material from Sevendust's stint on the TVT label. Best Of features not only the Atlanta-based heavy rock band's finest album tracks (including the lumbering "Denial" and the surging "Bender" with the Deftones' Chino Moreno), but a handful of rarities as well (most notably a fierce cover of Marvin Gaye's "Inner City Blues" and a searing rendition of Alice Cooper's "School's Out"). Throughout this set, the group provides blistering guitar work and tight, pummeling rhythms, while frontman Lajon Witherspoon unleashes his dynamic and emotive vocals, reinforcing Sevendust's status as one of the most reliable acts in the nu-metal genre.
