Read For cars, portable music... 80% kluseba July 22nd, 2016

Limited 3-CD digipak, including a bonus CD which contains ten tracks recorded live at Wacken in 2015. The booklet contains a 2-pages long writing from keyboardist Jens Johansson dated Spring, 2016 and other lines of text written by the whole band.

"Until the End of Days" (track 1, CD1) is a previously unreleased track.

"Legions of the Twilight" (track 6, CD3) is actually "Legions" from Stratovarius' 1997 Visions full-length; though, the official compilation label it with a "full title" taken from one of the lines of the song ("stronger than steel, we're the legions of the twilight").

Recording information:

Remastered in 2016 at the FinnVox Studio in Helsinki, Finland.
