The Best of Papa Roach: To Be Loved compiles most of the rock band Papa Roach's hits beginning with songs from their 2000 major-label debut, Infest, through to 2009's Metamorphosis. Although Papa Roach started out as rap-rock fusionists, they quickly morphed into a nu metal and hard rock outfit by 2002's lovehatetragedy. Perhaps not surprisingly, this compilation sticks to most of the rock-oriented tracks in the band's catalog. To these ends you get such songs as "Broken Home," "Scars," "Getting Away with Murder," and "Lifeline." Also included is a live version of "Forever" and an acoustic version of "Scars." While To Be Loved really doesn't offer many enticements to longtime fans, it does work as a summation of the rock-leaning side of Papa Roach's career thus far.

I admit that this may sound laughable to others, but for some reason, I was influenced to check out “To Be Loved”: The Best of Papa Roach after recently hearing remnants of their music in a dream. I have also been familiar with their music since the early 2000’s and count the following musical tracks as songs that I find catchy, that are also featured on the greatest hits collection: “Scars”, “Getting Away With Murder”, “To Be Loved”, and “Forever”. “Papa Roach: To Be Loved” is a good collection for those who like some of the songs by this group and/or listeners of hard rock music.
