By Justin G. TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 26, 2007
Format: Audio CD
There's no denying the fact that Finnish progressive power metal band Sonata Arctica is one of the genre's most talented and refined acts. The band has successfully built on a Helloween-style power metal foundation and combined that with a progressive technicality that is on par with bands like Vanden Plas and Threshold. Unfortunately, like their fellow countrymen Stratovarius, the band can be a bit repetitive at times. I own their first four studio albums, and if I loaded my CD changer with all of them, I'd be hard pressed to tell which album I was listening to at any given time. I had come to the conclusion that while I certainly appreciated Sonata Arctica's sound, it just wasn't necessary for me to own all of their albums. That's where the appropriately-titled 2006 release The Collection comes in handy. Well, End of This Chapter: Best of Sonata Arctica would have done just as nicely, but for those of us not inclined to drop big bucks on a Japanese import, this is the next best thing.

This 2-disc collection draws the best songs from Sonata Arctica's catalog, up until Reckoning Night. They really managed to grab the most memorable songs from the band's catalog while adding a pair of remakes - My Land and Replica. There are 17 tracks total on the first disc.

The second disc is a DVD featuring a pair of videos and some live performances. It's a nice enough extra I suppose, but a second disc full of songs would have gone over much better.

A phenomenal collection of all the catchy, heavy riff songs with reminiscent vocal melodies on this particular album. The Collection features singles and some of Sonata Arctica's most popular songs from Ecliptica to Reckoning Night. Moreover, it is notable to contain two of their most popular songs, 'My Land' and 'Replica', re-recorded with this time, Marko and Henrik on bass guitar and keyboard, respectively.

It's a good album for new fans like me who doesn't know whede to start. I heard them doing opening gig for Nightwish and wanted to hear more from them so I bought this one to find some of my new favorites.

A nice collection of their songs. Honestly all of their albums are worth listening to start to finish so this is a collectors item but too much sonata arctica is never a bad thing.
