Evergrey - A Decade and a Half

Are you familiar with Evergrey?  If not, now is the time.  The band has just released a retrospective best of called A Decade and a Half, which covers the band's entire catalog.  The band formed in 1998 and has released 8 studio albums and one live record.  This 2 disc set takes the best tracks from each record to give you an idea of what this band is all about.  This is such a good way for a fan of melodic progressive metal to get introduced to one of the best bands out there doing it today.  For the rabid fan, that has all of the songs in this collection, the band has included a couple teasers to entice you to get this one.  There are (2) unreleased live acoustic tracks on the CD, Wrong and Frozen, which may entice longtime fans to pick this one up.  Even if you have all the CD's, this is a nice thing to have to just put in and rock.

Bottom LineBest of, from one of the better progressive bands out there today.  This is essential for any fan of the genre that is not familiar with this powerhouse.  Melodic progressive metal with a purpose.
