This CD was a great purchase for me. For months now I have been trying desperately to get a hold of the original Beneath the Encasing of Ashes CD, however, I found nothing under $40. This CD was a great alternative for people like me, who just wanted a copy of their earlier stuff, for collection reasons.
If you're looking for the great As I Lay Dying sound that's in Frail Words Collapse, or Shadows Are Security, you won't find it here. And if you're buying this trying to find good quality songs from them, you'll be dissapointed. The main reason they released this CD is to keep their older releases on the market, so fans like me can purchase them without having the hassle of paying 40$ for a discontinued album.
