5 stars Featuring masterfully remixed versions of the band's library, "12:5" might just be one of the group's best albums-- and is one of my own personal favorite LIVE recordings of all time.

Even for those listeners who are not familiar with the original versions, "12:5" is a lush and emotive experience, featuring walls of acoustic texture laced with lead/backing vocals that drip with emotion; Daniel's voice brings tears to eyes and has NEVER sounded better, bringing new levels of meaning to his excellent lyrics. The first passage, "Genesis", is irresistible, while the material from "Remedy Lane/Perfect Element" positively shines in this format.

A perfect introduction to the band from those coming from outside the metal sphere; an amazing experience.
