Review Text Budget-priced collections are usually a double-edged sword. Sure, you can't complain about the low price, but these sets always conveniently leave out at least one or two bona fide classics, in hopes that the buyer will later return to the record store to buy further releases from the band. The ten-track 2003 Run-D.M.C. collection The Best of Run DMC is no different. While there's no arguing about the greatness of such tracks as "King of Rock," "It's Tricky," and "It's Like That," you simply cannot call a Run-D.M.C. collection a true "best-of" and not include their breakthrough hit single, "Walk This Way" (which many would agree served as most rock fans' initial introduction to rap). Also nowhere to be found are such other notable tracks as "Rock Box," "Mary, Mary," and "Sucker M.C.'s (Krush-Groove 1)." The Best of Run DMC comes close to being an admirable sampler of Run-D.M.C. hits, but without the inclusion of "Walk This Way," it's just too darn flawed. ~ Greg Prato
