2 stars The idea of this complitation makes me confused. Sure I get that it was SUPPOSED to get newcomers interested, but as a fan there's no reason to buy it, and even if you are just getting into DT, get the original albums first. The problem isn't the music. The music's all great (with the exception of a few cuts), but somehow the complitation isn't good. I love DT (probably one of my favorite bands), but for newcomers, really look away. It's obvious that fans shouldn't buy, but for newcomers you should really start with IMAGES AND WORDS, OCTAVARIUM, or SIX DEGREES OF INNER TURBULENCE. It's all for the simple reason that after listening to this you'll buy them anyway, or use the actual albums to say you don't like DT. I guess you could just say that I hate complitations, but from DT I was expecting an exception to the rule. Music: 5/5, Overall package: 1/5, Overall Score: 2/5.
J-Man | 2/5 |
