This EP contains the single version of the track The Evil Beside You from the full length Maniacal Renderings which rolls into town at 3.23 minutes in duration, the full version of this which runs to 4.51 as well as the LP track Time to Die. Unless you really want the edited version of The Evil Beside You there isn't really a lot of reasons to pick up this little release. Some reason is given by the presence of the two live tracks tacked onto the end in the form of The Dark and People Say - Gimme Some Hell. Another reviewere on these very pages pointed out that these two tunes sound like they were recorded with a mobile phone. Now I'm not quite so harsh but they are are certainly raw. That may actually give them added value for some listeners but perhaps not for the majority. Regardless given the fact both tunes are available in studio form on the 'Tage Mahal album they are really only curio/collectors items.

Song wise the first three tracks aren't bad. But two of them are available on a full length you can probably pick up for the same price as this EP if you shop around a tad.

All up this is sure to find a market in Savatage and Jon Oliva completists for the live tracks alone. If you hate live tracks anyway, perhaps you are better off just downloading (legally) the edit version of The Evil Beside You.

I bought this one as a mistake, thinking this was the full album...however it was a pleasant surprise. Jon is great as usual, but the last 2 songs sound as if they were recorded with a cell phone. I'll get the new cd right away....
