4 stars A truly best of by Flairck.

There is no points of releasing a greatest hits album when you get your band together and give it all in a live setting. In particular; when you take a long and hard look at your impressive long career and choose the best of the best to play that evening/those evenings. Then you fire up the band and tape the result.

The result is given. Flairck has some great albums and songs under their belts in additions to some not-so-greats and one turkey. Well, that's the world according to me and it is therefore a highly subjective opinion. But I really value this band and give many thanx to ProgArchives for pointing me in their direction.

There is not much point of even describing this music. The music is like symphonic prog with all the electric instruments removed and a solid dosage of folk/gypsy music added. The music appeals to a wide variety of prog rock fans. The second CD includes the best music here and the final three tracks is exceptional superb. But before that, we have been taken through some truly great music, performed by a band at their best.

This double album is a superb introduction to this exceptional band and comes highly recommended.

4 stars
