AllMusic Review by

dc Talk's Greatest Hits serves as a strong compilation of one of the premier Contemporary Christian trios of the mid-'90s. Sure, there are no cuts from the band's first three albums, but the majority of big hits are here -- "Jesus Freak," "Supernatural," and "Jesus Is Just Alright" all make the cut and are among the disc's finest moments. dc Talk's strongest record Free at Last and its successor, Jesus Freak, get nearly all of the attention here, with a few songs off their last album Supernatural to round things out. But the limited selection of their discography is a good thing, since the group hadn't fully matured into their own until after Nu Thang. Although this collection has fewer tracks than the previous greatest-hits package Intermission: The Greatest Hits, there are no remixes or skits present and this makes for a more direct overview. If you're looking for clean, upbeat Christian pop-rap, with positive spiritual messages and tinges of alternative rock, this is probably the best starting point to get a feel for one of the top acts in the genre. [The CD was also released with a DVD.]
