1 stars I'll try to keep this short. I love Royal Hunt. They are one of my favorite bands. While not overly prog, I just love their neoclassical sound. This collection was a disappointment for me.

SONG SELECTION: Not stellar, but OK.

SOUND EDITING: OK this is bad. It sounds like if you just took the playlist of different songs from different albums on Itunes and burned to a CD. Since the songs on their original albums often ran over into their neighbors, the song changes are very abrupt. Very poorly done. The songs needed to be faded out, cut at different places, cross faded, or SOMETHING.

BONUS CD: Interesting and worthwhile if you are a completionist.

DVD: For me this is forgettable. I believe all of the videos on here are available elsewhere in more complete form.

PACKAGING: This is the real shame. I feel like this was put forward as a Special Edition / Premium product. The outer packaging is a long box like a DVD would come in. When you open that up you get one lousy insert card with a few pictures on it. There is no info about the band, the songs, the source albums, the band, etc. If this was really a 20 year retrospective they could have done a lot more with the "pack ins".
