2 stars John Payne's vocals can't hold a candle to John Wetton's on the re-recordings of the original tracks found her. Unfortunately, Payne didn't consistently master the subtlety necessary to carry off lead vocals for the band until his last album, Silent Nation, which was a decent effort. That album, however, came out after this compilation, so nothing from that effort appears here. "The Hunter" is a strong entry, but it's done much better on the GTR album. "Two Sides of the Moon" is another strong track, though I like the acoustic version better. The best Payne effort here, in my opinion, is "Who Will Stop the Rain?"
