4 stars EDIT: As collection, it is almost supposed to have few blind spots of not so interesting music. But that's not case of this album so much, as most of songs here sounds good. Even it's based on three albums and ten singles (thanks previous reviewer for correcting facts), they're planted here, put together in very clever way, that you won't even notice that it's collection. The best sounding "epic" epic of 70's? Probably not, but still it's a good album. When listening all tracks at once, it (2 hours, 30 minutes, do you even have a time to listen it at once?), it can be somehow weary, as it "sounds" quite similar. Something that Jethro Tull (flute somebody? I hear it here) managed, to have distinct sound.

Really good deal. It is long, in fact, it is as long as 2 CD's can be, so of course, there will be some boring parts (they can't have every song perfect) and I'm aware of that. But when considering it's a compilation, for me, it stands very high above other collections. It's basically offering of their entire material from studio albums I believe (I hope). Musically, it's one of the better, old RPI groups (for me at least), I like them for their unique sound and for having good elements in their music. And also for their accessibility, almost everybody can listen to it, while maintaining high standard of music.

4(-) for moderately good collection of mostly good songs. Just hear it for yourself, it's worth of it.
