4 stars Here is a great starting point for people unfamiliar with Renaissance, although for fans, this will likely prove unnecessary. There is a fuse of jazz and classical elements, as the piano is by far the leading instrument throughout- yet it is Annie Haslam's far-reaching voice that takes the spotlight. After a lengthy and stellar introduction to "Can You Understand," Haslam begins to sing one of the groups best songs. Her voice is exquisite throughout all of the music, and the players are incredible in their respective roles. Another favorite of mine is "Carpet of the Sun," which sounds phenomenal, as Hasalm's voice just wavers and bends in ways I never thought possible. There is amazing piano and bass work throughout, and the drums a great job of complimenting the music in a tasteful. A few of the tracks are live, but most are studio. This is not a perfect compilation, of course, but it is rather close. The bottom line is this: For those unfamiliar with the musical group Renaissance or desiring to for once hear the amazing lead vocals, this is a fantastic starting point. Given the amount of music that is present, it is for sure a worthy initiation.
