Believers Never Die – Greatest Hits is the first greatest hits album by American rock band Fall Out Boy. It was released on November 17, 2009 in the United States by Island Records, containing all of the songs the band has released as singles throughout their career thus far in chronological order, as well as two new songs and two rarities. Believers Never Die was generally received positively by critics. Believers Never Die – Greatest Hits debuted at No. 77 on the US Billboard 200 chart, finding its greatest success in Australia where it reached No. 25 on the Australian Albums Chart. In the UK, Believers Never Die peaked at No. 88 and was certified Silver by the British Phonographic Industry in 2013 for 60,000 shipments.
Some of the advantages that 2004's Greatest Hits has over 1995's The Best of Alexander O'Neal are apparent from the quickest of glances. The most obvious difference is the quantity of songs: while The Best of Alexander O'Neal functioned as a suitable introduction covering the singer's first three albums, this disc features five more sensibly picked cuts. The most important inclusion here, beyond all the essential chart hits ("If You Were Here Tonight," "Criticize," "Fake," "Never Knew Love Like This," "All True Man," "What Is This Thing Called Love?"), is "Saturday Love," the magnificent 1986 single previously bound to duet partner Cherrelle's catalog. Alexander O'Neal (1985), Hearsay (1986), and All True Man (1991) are all worth owning, but this compilation will do for those on a budget.
This album has had over three decades to make an impact, and it says something for its staying power that, in the face of more recent, more generously programmed, and better mastered compilations of the duo's work, it remains one of the most popular parts of the Simon & Garfunkel catalog – which doesn't mean it isn't fraught with frustrations for anyone buying it…
14 songs covering the biggest Commodores material with Lionel Richie. It's a good single-disc package, although most of Motown's CDs in the late '70s and early '80s had very uneven sound. There's also a Commodores greatest hits album that came out in 1981 and a 14 greatest hits album that came out overseas a year after this one.
