AllMusic Review by

Released in 2006, this budget-priced Collections compilation features 12 songs from Lou Reed's late-'70s/early-'80s output, including obvious hits like "Walk on the Wild Side," "Satellite of Love," and "Vicious," as well as deeper cuts like "Tell It to You Heart" from 1986's wildly uneven Mistrial and "The Gun" from 1982's overlooked Blue Mask album. It's by no means definitive, nor does it make a lick of sense, but there are enough decent tracks to not turn it into a coaster. [Collections was reissued in 2008 as Greatest Hits [Steel Box]].
