I am not sure how you review a greatest hits album. The songs are supposed to be all good because it is…well…a greatest hits compilation. The term “great” is already applying to all the songs. With that being said, this is more of a review of the whole package as I picked this up on vinyl recently and thought it was spectacular.
The cover was the first thing I noticed. The red color was so bright and shiny, the metal of the aircraft looked like real metal and the the rivets were raised and you could run your finger over them and feel each bump.
The package was a gatefold like all good 2LP sets should be. Although not a single picture of the band to expand both sides, it is still a great set of pictures to feel up the space. Let me tell you, having the LP release, these pictures are really large and so crisp and clear. Excellent work was put in to the release.
There was an insert included that all the writing credits of the songs used on one side and a letter from Dave Grohl from September 18, 2009 about the band.
