Good compliation album because they re-recorded it rather than just release the same stuff. More likely that old fans will buy it as well.

One of the best if not even the best thing Gamma Ray ever released. The track list is amazing ("Rich & Famous" still sucks but it can be forgiven since it's bonus track), definitely better than on any singular GR album. The re-recorded songs sound great, even better than the originals. If I compare these re-records and old songs, IMO the re-records sound more like Gamma Ray. No disrespect towards Ralf, but truth is: Kai did better job on vocals for these songs. Pretty much an essential album for anyone who likes the band.
