2 stars ARENA - Edits

This is a strange album! All 5 tracks of this album can be found on the 9 track album of the same year called PRIDE. Yet, they are all shorter than the original tracks, hence the title of the album: EDITS.

."Welcome to the cage" is 4:14 long and now cut to 2:55 ."Medusa", normally 4:28 now only lasts 3:52 .The merely ten minute track "Fools Gold" is now almost cut in half! .The epic "Sirens" which almost lasts 14 minutes on PRIDE is now edited into a shameless (not even) 3 minute track! ."Empire Of A Thousand Days" is (fortunately) almost not edited and only misses some 45 seconds. At least this track still almost last 9 minutes.

So what's the point of issuing this album only containing "edits" from its predecessor "PRIDE"? Maybe ARENA wanted to make the album more "radio friendly" and therefore having some commercial success? Or is this just a cheap album to rip off music collectors?

Personally I see absolutely no point at all of getting this album. (As a matter of fact I have it and I have no plans of buying it either whatsoever). Just spend the money to get the album PRIDE and you will be pleased of not having wasted it on this "el cheapo" version of it.

Unfortunately I think 2 stars is the only rating I can come up with. Shame on ARENA for putting out this album!
