4 stars A very pleasant and solid compilation, in my opinion! ...and a very listened and listened again by me in the last 8 years since I put my hands on it! We've got here a bunch of songs from Payne-era (which represents for me almost the perfect image of what band meant in the period after Wetton's departure) together with five representative songs from Wetton-era (Only Time will tell, Don't Cry, The Heat goes on, Go and Heat of the Moment). I think both type of songs were chosen to reflect band's excellent creativity. For example, I like very much The Hunter, Feels like Love and Different Worlds from Payne era, songs that I consider to be the best from the compilation, but, without any doubt the songs from Wetton-era are also nice re-recordings and these songs, IMO, are sounding much clearer than the originals, especially Don't Cry. Don't get me wrong: I own the original releases and it's just my personal opinion here! Overall, the music is very pleasant for any audience and does not require too many auditions to understand it! For the young fans of this prog band, I recommend this compilation and for the fans of Payne era it's a good musical picture!
