"The potential listeners of this CD can be divided into 2 groups - those who know of early Chandeen, and those who are being introduced through this compilation. For the latter, this work is unquestionably a triumph; Chandeen is uniquely beautiful and pleasantly listenable, with a distinct signature sound that is blissful and dark at the same time. But those who have heard the earlier works, and Jutland (RTD 391-0122-2, Hyperium importt) in particular, will realize just how much has been lost. The passion, shadow, and sensuality prevalent in songs such as Ginger, Lightning, Young Days, Snow, Drift, and Strawberry Passion are unforgettable - once you hear these in sequence, Chandeen may well become one of your all-time favorite works. Fans of Dead Can Dance, Delerium, and even Cocteau Twins will be thrilled with these songs. But compared to what has come since, with new vocalists, new direction, and less creativity, the past triumphs of this group remain on a plateau considerably above the present collection. This is a great disk, but not nearly as good as it could be, and many opportunities were missed in the track selection. Search out the back catalog if you can! ;)"
I've been playing this cd for a month straight.. almost

"I have two other Chandeen cd's they are extremely hard to come by in the U.S I was glad when this came out on a U.S label. If you like projekt type bands, as well as early 4AD bands you'll love Chandeen.. Two females voices, which are wonderful sing with a little accent, but it really adds to the music overall. Their early work was considered "goth pop" but it seems as if they are in a transition period right now, some is atmospheric, and others are quite ethereal.. beautiful lyrics, and beautiful music.."
If you like Enya, Dead Can Dance, etc., consider this disk.

"A solid, listenable "best of" album. Some of the alternative versions of their best songs work pretty well, with a notable exception in track two. Chandeen is often featured in the "Heavenly Voices" compellations with good reason. Good band."
