Review


If you like UDO, then you will probably like this better than me; but on the other hand, if you like UDO then you already have all these albums. This is a 'best of' compilation, and it's pretty much as unnecessary as all the other UDO albums I have ever heard. Some of the music is solid, but the tracklist is highly suspect, and Udo's vocals are as shitty as they have ever been. This is the best they could get out of however-many albums? Overall this is massively uninspired and uninteresting, and in places almost intolerable. Low points include the awful "Cry Soldier Cry", the wretched "24/7", the hideous "Trainride To Russia", and an acoustic/piano version of "Balls To The Wall" that must be heard to be believed. Absolutely ridiculous.
