AllMusic Review by

Trimming the band's output during their stint on Mercury Records (As Ugly as They Wanna Be, America's Least Wanted, and Menace to Sobriety), down to its choicest morsels, The Collection is an 18-track greatest-hits compilation from '90s hard rockers Ugly Kid Joe. Leading off with heavy hitters "Everything About You" and their cover of Harry Chapin's "Cat's in the Cradle," The Collection gets off to a solid start before journeying into the deeper reaches of their early output. And even though this compilation doesn't feature any material from their third album, 1996's Motel California, its focus on the band's most solid years will be boon to listeners.
