Review by progrules
3 stars One of the (at least) three SI-samplers. I remember I got this as a present because I was overjoyed by the first in those days and so the people who gave it knew it was a certain success.

At first I wanted to review this track by track but I decided not to because this is actually an album uniform of quality. So it would all be 3 - 3,5 ratings and that's not very exciting for 14 songs all in line. Are all songs of the same quality ? Well, almost. Highlight (to me) is Don't turn away by Cyan, a track from their debut For King and Country. Cyan is a band I got to know thanks to this sampler and it thus proved its value. Same goes for Ywis (Homo Sapiens) the other good song on this sampler and the most metal-like. The other tracks are a lot more quiet, almost mellow. That can be a very enjoyable listen for 70 minutes if you are in that kind of a mood. If you're not, don't play this.

With all songs between 3 and 3,5 stars ratings it will be clear that this is a 3 star case (3,3).
