3 stars This is one of my favorite bands. When this boxset compilation was released, I direct ordered it from the label and was quite surprised when I received the CDs. It was in CDR format instead of CD! I complained about it but the label said that this is the only production they produce: using CDR. It seems not professional at all BUT since I like the band, I did accept it. It's true, the music offered here are most of them their masterpiece in their mother tongue language! This, for me, sounds better because I'd rather listen to album which is sung in the band's mother language. A very good example is one of my all time favorite songs "Reality or Misantrophy" from the band's "Angels and Demons" album is performed here under the "Realidad o Misantropia?" (6:31) which for my ears sounds much better especially with the addition of flute work. In fact this is the best song from this compilation. "Iniciacion" (7:53) is also another great song in instrumental style. The drum work is truly dynamic.

For those who love symphonic progressive rock, this compilation does its job well. Unfortunately, it is not recorded under CD format (printed) but it's burnt into CDR.

Gatot | 3/5 |
