I am surprised at some of the other reviews. Some people seem to ask ‘why did they bother’? What these reviewers seem to miss is that if they are a die hard fan of DT and have all the albums then this compilation is not for them! Why do you care? If they want to repackage some of their more middle of the road songs to try and get some more people to enjoy their art, why would you criticize this? Are you afraid that the 10 minutes it took them to put this set together took valuable time away from creating the next album or stopped Mike from working on his next piece in his AA suite? Well it didn’t. I don’t like seeing anyone giving this less than 5 stars because the music is amazing and this set should have 5 stars so more people will check it out.
Yes it doesn’t have any of the epic songs, and it doesn’t bring anything new but if it brings more fans to the band and makes them some money so they can continue making great music then that is awesome. Just because something isn’t geared at you doesn’t make it bad.
Enough ranting. For everyone else, if you are not a DT fan you should be and this is a great disc to get to hear a couple of hours of amazing music. If you want to take it to the next level then get their other albums and listen to some 20 minute compilations that will blow you away.
If so you have about 10 hours of great music ahead of you.
