4 stars For a long time this compilation was the only thing available from this band on this CD format. Apparently all the original albums are out now, to coincide with their entry in the ProgArchives.

This compilation gives a very good overview of what was the quintessence of Quintessence (I just had to do that pun before someone else did it ), as the influences are definitely axed towards Classical Indian music and they managed quite well. All of the tracks on this Cd are taken from the first three or four albums (from In Blissful Company until Dive Deep) and this is just fine because they started losing it afterwards going more commercial and diluting their differences. So the tracks taken show a good diversity/spectrum of what they could do and all tracks are full Indian-influenced psychadelic rock but with enough complexity to be considered as prog.

I am generally not a fan of compilation and sometimes wary of the tracks selection on those kind , but this one is much recommended.
