3 stars This collection can truly be called "The Ultimate Collection" since it contains all the tracks they ever released. On this collection each track can be found as either a studio recording or a live recording.

Disc one contains the complete debut album with some tracks from the second and third album. This disc gives the best example of how good Solution is. At their best they make progressive, jazzy music with references to Soft Machine and Supersister. The music is mainly instrumental with few vocals. But when they sing it sounds very nice. Disc two is less interesting. It starts good with a remaining track from "Cordon Bleu", but with the fourth album Solution made more mainstream music. Most progressive music lovers will loose interest here. The third disc is a live one. It is the same release as the cd "The best of Solution live" from 1991 (except for the last track, Fever, which is a studio version again).

So this may be an ultimate collection, but considering the music of Solution, the first three albums: Solution, Divergence and Cordon Bleu are the albums to get. The rest is obsolete.
