3 stars This album is Threshold Fan Club release. Different versions of known songs mostly are included.

Album's opener is melodic heavy metal "Virtual Isolation [Radio Edit]". "Intervention" is presented by remixed version. Both songs are melodic not too much complex, but very energetic prog metal. "Sunseeker [Radio Edit]" is heavier and faster."Voyager II [Urban Version] " is a bit bombastic, but sensitive metal ballade.

Andrew McDermott is very competent ( if not too original) vocalist. All first part of the album sounds as quality progressive metal (not too much original as well, though).

"Change" is presented in unplugged acoustic version. Vocals and strings sound very competent there."Mother Earth [1999 Remix] " is driven by twin guitars and sounds as one of heaviest song on the album."Exposed" will be a good companion to previous one. But melodie is a bit missed there. Melodic and mellow ballad "Lost (Japanese release)" return you back to more usual Threshold sound.

"Into The Light [1999 Remix]" is longest album's song (almost 10 minutes), and in fact are band's classic visit card : starting as slow melodic, a bit dreamy ballad, it changes to mid tempo rocker, with guitar solos, some rhythm breaks, and even screaming vocals, and finishes at the same sound, as it was started.

Two last songs are both electronics club dance remixes and could attract possibly very specific metal fan. But both sound funny.

In fact, as Fan Club release, this album is not bad product. Possibly will bring some pleasant minutes to band fans with some slightly different material, but at the same time is enough representative to attract regular prog metal fan.
