Angra: Best Reached Horizons

Progressive Power Metal
4.0/5.0

Best Reached Horizons is basically a 'best of' album from Brazilian progressive power metal band Angra. The 20 songs were complied by guitar player Kiko Loureiro and comes with liner notes by guitar player Rafael Bittencourt.

The two CD set spans their entire 20 year career, collecting songs from every album and EP. The first CD considers the Andre Matos era including classic Angra songs Angels Cry, Holy Land, Metal Icarus and a live version of Carolina IV. The second CD covers the Edu Falaschi, who has since departed the band, period with choice tracks including Rebirth, Hunters and Prey, The Course of Nature, and Lease of Life from the most recent Aqua album. This CD concludes with an interesting cover of Led Zeppelin's Kashmir.

As far as 'best of' albums go, Best Reached Horizons is a fine collection and good representation of Angra's music. It will provide a decent introduction to those unfamiliar with the band. Fans, however, will probably wish they would have included more material, even more live tracks possibly. Recommended.
