Label: Gain Music 2011
Review by: Urban "Wally" Wallstrom
Mustasch??? It's more like a Father Christmas beard covered in stains of mustard and various greasy food. Leftover? Nah, it's very much the same story as the "new" Kingdom Come album, the Swedish band has decided to re-record their old songs and it's a disasterious decision really. The new arrangements and versions are frankly put worse than the originals and it's not like they needed to be recorded again (due to either being very old and/or stuck with a dodgy production of the past). The band has merely been around the block for the past ten years and let's merely hope and pray this isn't the new standard in hard rock and metal.
Blimey, we certainly do not need these kind of albums to float the metal market and scene in the future. The band obviously thinks this is a good idea, since, and I quote, "we wanted the fans to hear and re-discover the songs as they would sound like in 2011". No, no, and no again!!! That's clearly not the correct way to enjoy music, you're supposed to connect through a special time and place in your life and not by the band's re-recordings every new decade. "I'm Frustrated" and it's like some kind of "Dubbel Nature", "Parasite", came up with the grand idea in the first place. "Angel's Share" is the only new composition and it works as a single (get it as download and forget about the rest), "The New sound of The True Best" is however a real shocker though. Avoid and simply get the original CD's!!!
