4 stars So this is basically re-packed, extended edition of the first album "Rennaissance", but I can't see any point in making a new title with new cover design when there is already available the same edition of "Rennaissance", apart from some dubious legal issues of the label company. Nonetheless, music is excellent example of early simphonic prog with melodic songs, classical-influenced piano, post-psychedelic guitars and folkish vocals. For publishing enterprise I would give 1 star, for music 4, altogether making 4 stars. Not much of arithmetics, but art should never be measured in technical terms!

1 stars Unbelievable way to fool people! Thatīs my conclusion. When I first saw this CD on an imported records shop in my hometown I (and, I guess, many others) was led to believe it was a kind of compilation of tracks from Renaissance first two albums or maybe a collection of lost tapes or something like that. Fortunatly I didnīt buy it. Later I found out it is just that groupīs first LP with a different title and cover, plus a few more bonus tracks (two of them already present in most reissues of the record for the compact disc format). I was really amazed of such act!! Is it legal? Does the members of the band even know about this ruse? Iīm really dumfounded!

Well, if youīre a hardcore fan of Renaissance MK I it may be worth it to buy it for those four extra tracks (if they are not already available on another, more honest, reissue of the Renaissanceīs debut). Or maybe you like the cover. For me it is just criminal. Avoid at all costs.
