Review by NotAProghead
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Errors & Omissions Team
2 stars To celebrate their 40-th anniversary, STERN COMBO MEISSEN re-recorded, in studio, their old songs, added 4 new tracks and released them on this double CD.

Nice to see the band re-united and touring, but I expected more from this record.

CD 1 is a collection of pop songs, some are pleasant, but most are quite forgettable. Three new songs, added as bonus tracks, are not better than others.

CD 2 is much more interesting, because it contains band's prog compositions. Most of them sound worse than original versions, I prefer sounds of vintage synthesizers on 70's records. Especially bad is ''Der weite Weg'' - my favourite STERN COMBO MEISSEN song, but in this interpretation it lost its magic.

Best tracks, in my opinion, are ''Eine Nacht auf dem kahlen Berge'' (adaptation of Mussorgsky's ''Night on the Bare Mountain'') - strong and powerful version, and Ravel's ''Bolero''. The latter, even if was played in concerts (I don't know for sure), has never been recorded by the band before.

Fans can find some interesting moments on this release. But if you are new to STERN COMBO MEISSEN, better start with any of their first four albums.
