5 stars An excellent compilation of compilations.

All the assembled tracks, recorded from 2006 back to 1990, are arranged in reverse chronological order and nicely work together to feel like an original album.

One of the songs was actually from a compilation that I already had - Dali: The Endless Enigma. Every artist did a musical impression of a painting. They picked Inventions Of The Monsters. I liked it and all the other musician's aural paintings. Djam Karet were unknowns to me then later I encountered A Night For Baku and instantly became a die hard fan. But for those who are familiar with Dali paintings, some are small yet complex. DK takes you along on a on a journey through the painting. The rest of the tracks are also as inspired...

It may just my imagination but hearing their impression of Monsters in FLAC format and pulling up an image of the painting on screen has intensified the experience for me. I would highly recommend listening to this album in that format, though in CD and even in my standard more portable format, WMA, it's not too shabby.

Since I don't have any of the other compilation albums that they have been on I have no other tracks I can compare to Gayle Ellett's remastering enhancements to the prior versions, but Inventions Of The Monsters is certainly improved.

4.5 and rounding up as this is certainly an album that will stand the test of time.
