Review by erik neuteboom
3 stars This CD from the Swedish band Cross is a compilation with re-mastered songs from their first three CD's and additional remixed and new versions. It contains 11 tracs, recorded between 1987 and 1993. Cross is a musical project by multi-instrumentalist Cross (lead vocals, guitars, synthesizers, sampled drums and percussion), in general it sounds dynamic with strong beats, flowing and fiery guitarwork (a bit similar to David Gilmour) and often bombastic keyboards. The longer tracks feature a nice variety, from up-tempo rock to mellow with soaring keyboards. The vocals have a slight accent and but sound decent. The composition "The fanfare song" seems to me a tribute to the mid-Emerson delivering a fat and bombastic synthesizer sound. A nice album.
