Okay, so let me clarify this before I get started with the review. All four of these CD’s are sold separately and not part of a set, but I decided to review them all together as Accept fans might be inclined to buy them all. Former lead vocalist for Accept, Udo Dirkschneider has arranged for these great classic metal albums to be released as digipaks for the first time ever. Each one comes complete with all of the original studio tracks, plus live bonus tracks and or commentary from Udo himself. The live tracks were recorded live on a recent live tour for Udo’s solo band entitled simply, Dirkschneider. These are a great edition to your collection. Packaged much like a historical retrospective, you get some insight to the early works of the band and their progression toward becoming mega-stars with “Balls To Walls” and other great albums that followed. The live tracks prove that Dirkschneider still has that incredible vocal sound that made the band famous. Although the band has continued on with new singer, Mark Tornillo in recent years, these 4 early albums are a really incredible snapshot of the bands’ earlier work and quite a fitting tribute to Dirkschneider’s years in the band. When you look back at early heavy metal history, no one, with the exception of the Scorpions were more well known and revered as Accept. These discs are loaded with classic material that every self respecting metal fan should own.
