"Im gonna be frank here. This review is getting bad reviews, people are [upset] that Peaceville has cheated its fans out of money with this peice of [junk] best of album.However I disagree with the masses, this album kicks [butt] and is my favorite doom metal cd that i own. The beauty of it is that is so quiet and so incredibly mellow that its a treat to listen to. The album starts off with a short instrumental song and then goes on to, two great songs with female vocals, j'fait une promesse being one of the best on the album.The two most popular songs on the album or of course the acoustic versions of far away and eternity (part 3), also great songs.This is my sleeping album and to tell you the truth I have never slept better then when I fall asleep with this album. This really is the ultimate chill out album.The songs are also very catchy after a few listens. One problem with it is that its a bit short, the songs are often just over 1 minute long making go by a bit fast.This isn't your typical best of album and I recommend it to any doom metal fan. I still recommend the full length albums over it but this one still should not be missed."
