This is a budget-line package offering three back catalogue albums. 2002's 'Kutless' debut with its raw power and energy includes elements of rapcore, fused with rock and announced this Portland, Oregan-based band as a group to be watched. In truth, a proportion of the album now sounds a little dated, but tracks such as "Again" have stood the test of time well. The second of the set, 2003's 'Sea Of Faces', built on the promising debut with its stadium rock feel and some mature lyric writing. "Not What You See" and the title track are instantly recognisable with Jon Micah Sumrall's throaty vocals soaring throughout with power. This trilogy of releases concludes with 2006's polished 'Hearts Of The Innocent' that saw Kutless finally settle into the Foo Fighter's mould of classy rockers. As a collection the package is full of quality, but there is nothing new added. All we have here are three re-released albums copies of which most Kutless fans will already have, with no special features or extras. But it's a useful package for those new to Kutless.
