AllMusic Review by

Saliva never quite managed to be nu-metal superstars in the new millennium, but they were always around, always scraping the Billboard Top 20 Album Chart -- until 2009's Cinco Diablo, that is -- racking up a few mainstream and modern rock hits, highlighted by 2002’s “Always,” which topped the modern chart, and 2007’s “Ladies & Gentlemen,” which reached two on the mainstream. These, along with their other singles -- “Click Click Boom,” “Your Disease,” “Rest in Pieces,” “Survival of the Sickest,” “Ladies and Gentlemen,” “Broken Sunday,” and “Family Reunion,” with “After Me,” “Razor’s Edge,” “King of the Stereo,” and “How Could You?” not making the cut, probably because they didn’t rise too high on either chart -- are on 2010’s Moving Forward in Reverse: Greatest Hits, a collection that will convince no doubters, but functions as an effective overview of the band’s by-the-numbers metallic angst, already sounding like a time capsule just a few years after it flirted with the charts.
