Releasing a greatest-hits album after only two releases in 2000 and 2002 seems a bit premature, even for the most prolific of artists. And being prolific isn't something that would mark Ruff Endz either, as the majority of the band's releases weren't exactly top of the charts on a high-frequency basis. Misgivings aside, this combines all of their finest moments from both albums onto one disc. The one-two opening punch of "No More" and "Someone to Love You" easily represents the group's finest moments, with the heartaching quiet storm staple "You Mean the World to Me" following things up right behind. From there it's a hit-or-miss assortment of their most well-known tunes. The album runs on fumes toward the end, with a bit of filler to space things out into a full record. It's a fine record for those who want all of the group's biggest hits on one disc, but die-hard Ruff Endz fans will already have everything here.
