To call this a 'best of' is rather some sort of sacrilege to the ambition of such a compilation. It is in my opinion a great overview of her back catalogue, however, spanning from her earliest album to her latest.

Honestly, most of the tracks presented are either edited, remixed, etc. This seems to be a big turn-off for some fans (especially those thinking this could be a promising introduction to her music), but the truth is, I wouldn't own this CD if the items were merely the same material as presented on the albums.

There is some quality new music, my personal favorite being the new version of her great song Leysh Nat'Arak; while the editing may seem a bit harsh, take in the fact that this album has 16 tracks (making the edits rather necessary), which is pretty good compared to any hits compilation (though some of her actual hits are missing from this collection).

Some complaints I do have would be of course the above mention of some missing songs that deserve a spot in this collection, along with the excessive helping of new Leysh Nat'Arak tracks (one is certainly enough for me). I also feel I Put A Spell On You was thrown on here more to appeal to a broader crowd (it's one of her weakest tracks in my opinion, and very regressive to her sound).

Still, for the accomplished fan looking for some new material, or wanting to read some great and expansive liner notes, this is a great item to pick up.
