  • This is a greatest hits package performed entirely in concert to a crowd of rabid Tokyo fans. It chronicles the band’s very best songs from their debut album to their latest good Reckoning Night effort. It is a great treat for fans and a decent introduction to people who aren’t familiar with the band. Sonata Arctica plays a style of happy metal, which unlike the rest of this particular genre, it isn’t cheesy and doesn’t embarrass itself. For one thing, there’s a high degree of musicianship in the material and they also know how to craft powerful songs that you’ll remember for a long time. The CD contains 15 songs, while the DVD comes with 20, as well as a short bonus featurette. It features the band on their road to Japan, from their arrival at the airport to their visits to some Japanese clubs, all while being silly and drunk. The good Metal life, indeed…
