AllMusic Review by

The Japanese import collection Greatest Hits gives several domestic Harry Nilsson compilations a run for their money, collecting classics like "One," "Everybody's Talkin'," "Coconut," "Without You," and "One" over the course of 21 tracks. Essentially, this set is the domestic 2002 Greatest Hits collection from BMG Heritage with the track listing slightly reshuffled -- this version gets right down to business by beginning with "Everybody's Talkin'" and "Without You" in a one-two punch. The collection also includes such favorites as "Cuddly Toy," "1941," "Without Her," "Jump into the Fire," and "Daybreak," covering Nilsson's albums from Pandemonium Shadow Show to Pussy Cats. As consistent as 1978's venerable All Time Greatest Hits, Greatest Hits is a terrific single-disc Nilsson retrospective, but aside from the different (and less-interesting) cover artwork, the import offers no extras over the American version of the album.
