Rating: 8 Very good release. The new song is one of the best they've ever written, the remasters are all very tastefully done and most of them are better than originals (though I have mixed feelings on THE FINAL.) The unplugged version of THE FINAL is mindblowing though. Definitely recommend this release.

Rating: 8 I agree. The new song is very nice and those new takes on their old numbers provide for an interesting listening experience (especially, Kasumi, which is one of my favourite songs). Sadly I don't have the second CD in my version so I can't tell how good are the unplugged versions. Bonus DVD is a little nice extra that not only lets you see the band working in the studio but also contains an interview with Tue Madsen, who worked on mixing and mastering this record.
