Boy does this album SUCKS, if this doesnt get at least a 3 out of 10 in every review everywhere, then the reviewers are just ignorant, is totally mediocre except in the way the band plays, is a shameless cash grab

It's hard to make previously well written and arranged songs sound better than they already did. This album is clear proof that you can easily fail at this. Even a small change in the melody can make it sound very different when our brain was used to the previous version. It's not a bad album since these songs are absolute masterpieces when it comes to this type of music, but it definitely does not add anything to the original ones. In fact, most of the time it took away the magic these songs had. Sorry, but this is very average and pointless.

I hate to bash a low ride an album because its a re-recorded "greatest hits" album but.....well.....if you were never a fan of the album then here you go and you'l probably enjoy it as you aren;t seeing it through the eyes of the original cuts. but to release this as if it was a "brand new album.......... idk seems lame

I was frankly hoping for something better, and I'm usually a guy who likes the material Rhapsody put out. The entire record is just lifeless, and feels like none of the band members really liked being in that studio. I've heard much better from every single band members before, and this just seems like a poor choise by Staropoli. Still hoping for a brand new release with new material someday soon, I don't want Rhapsody to die out entirely, but to reinvent themselves, and find inspiration again.

This is not the worst "let's remake our old glory", but it's still not very good... The mix is horrendous and while the songs selected are actually good choices, the covers are hit and miss. Maybe one or two songs are ok, but I don't think I will be checking this one too much in the future.

Hits total: 6242 | This month: 6
