All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Hard to believe, but Capitol's 2008 collection Idolize Yourself: The Very Best of Billy Idol is only the second Billy Idol hits album to be released in America, following the first -- 2001's Greatest Hits -- by just seven years. Greatest Hits weighed in at 16 tracks and Idolize Yourself spans 18, adding two OK new songs to the mix the moody "John Wayne" and the ham-fisted "New Future Weapon", swapping out a live acoustic "Rebel Yell" and a cover of Simple Minds' "Don't You Forget About Me" for the latter-day cuts "Speed" and "World Comin' Down," but otherwise this is built upon the same core 14 hits as Greatest Hits.
