Accidental Collision of Atoms: The Best of Extreme was released two years previous to this, which makes Hole Hearted that much more of an anomaly of a release. The biggest of Extreme's singles are included here, but there are some glaring omissions of minor hits (most notably "Stop the World") that make this less than an essential release for even the most die-hard of fans. Casual listeners who don't already own the group's most important album (Pornograffiti) should seek out the aforementioned greatest hits or the economically sensible 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Extreme as more thorough alternatives.
