Its inevitable after a band has been around for 20 or so years...the time between new records increases and the release alot of live and compilations records/albums, Iron Maiden is a perfect example. Overkill on the otherhand has not followed this trend the the extreme. They have been releases a few compilations and a Live record...but also a good amount of new material along with it, 3 new full lenght albums since 1999. Which is pretty good for a band that is aging. But Overkill thought it was necessary to make a compilation that includes a bunch of good songs on it, but excludes their best material.
I'll start off with the good stuff. Overkill included the great songs Elimination, Horroscope, Rotten to the Core and Wrecking Crew. These are 4 great overkill songs, If I were to make a single Cd best of for overkill these would most likely be on it. This is basically the extent of the great stuff on this album.
Overkill thought it necessary to place less fan favorite songs/ songs that just aren't plain good as the ones above or songs on other albums. Ever other song on this album except for the aforementioned has a song thats better than it that would fit much better on this album, and also get people into Overkill who never heard them before. I mean thats what a compilation is for right? To get a sample of most of their works to people who never heard them before. If this was the first Overkill release I ever heard I wouldn't have gotten into them as much as I am now. I would think...these are Overkills best songs? Although all good, most are not great.
Songs I would have chosen in no particular order:
Rotten to the Core
Feel the Fire
Time to Kill
Evil Never Dies
Deny The Cross
And perhaps a few more. It terms of compilations I have seen much better ones. I give some points to overkill for not totaly messing this one up.
