Prog Reviewer
2 stars This is the only compilation listed in Superluminal Pachyderm's discography and basically contains a collection of this project's shorter pieces. As far as I know, it was only issued on the former that featured countless unsigned bands and amateur musicians and has been out of print since about 2002 or 2003.

I believe a lot of these tracks climbed kind of high on the prog rock charts on, so this might be a "greatest hits" album in a sense, though very few of these songs have been exposed to the general public at large. The song Dementia is a "concise edition," cut from its original 18 minutes down to 7 1/2 minutes. Three of the songs were extracted from the multi-part title track of the Perpetual Insanity album. The only song on there that did not appear on the original track listings of the S.P. discography is Epitome of an Eidolon, but even that song is now available as a bonus track on the Perpetual Insanity album.

A rather scarce album that appears to be rather unavailable at this time. Although it certainly has a neat title, it's really only for collectors and fans of the group. Besides, Superluminal Pachyderm's strengths are in its lengthier numbers, almost completely lacking on this compilation.
