Part of the 'Very Best Of' series, this compilation brings together 12 of Bride's earlier tracks. Taking the best material from 'End Of The Age', 'Kinetic Faith', 'Snakes In The Playground' and 'Scarecrow Messiah', the album covers from the late '80s to the mid '90s. From the screaming guitar intro and metal vocals of the opener "Hell No" the energy never lets up till the fading close of the final track "One". Having a distinct sound which down the years has evolved from classic metal to alt rock, the only real comparison that could be made is to Guns And Roses at their best. These guys know how to rock and could easily be kings of the rock world if they had compromised their message. Thankfully they do not and are still one of the best Christian bands about and are still shouting out loud that God is the answer to anyone who will listen.
