4 stars I'm a huge fan of this band, and when they decided to release a 'best off' I was really curious what songs where to be integrated into the compilation. I was given this compilation, though I have no need for it, since I already own the regular albums, but still it's nice.

For people not knowing Arena's music, this can be a decent beginner's guide, but not the sort I would have made. 2 songs from each album with the first two albums repesented by 1 song, and though basically they've chosen the best songs really, for the real fans there will be a moment of loss somewhere since those songs do not represent what I actually consider their best.

So when you come across it, do not hesitate in buying this, but your better off buying the actual albums themselves. Good for starters, for potential fans the actual albums are far superior to this decent, but not ultimate collection.

If only they consulted me for the tracklist ;) (it would have turned out to be a triple album at least, so better they didn't do that)
