This CD is truly a Metal Masterpeice....AMAZING!
I own the original 1985 cd release of Graceful Inheritance, so I have a great source to compare the remastering to. Let me start by saying that this CD sounds great!!!! The remastering was done very well. The additional tracks are incredible. Paul Davidson singing We, The People is AWESOME. Tomorrow Night is equally amazing! This album was definately before it's time. I highly recommend picking up a copy!

I own the original cd with the former cover (which I prefer anyway). This one (the music) is even better because the sound is remastered and above all there are two bonus tracks ("We, the people" and "Tomorrow night")with the first singer (Paul Davidson) which are excellent. One of the best heavy metal CDs of all times like "Dances of death" of Mekong Delta, "In search of sanity" of Onslaught", "By inheritance" of Artillery, "Rust in peace" of Megadeth, "Metal church" of Metal Church, "Fighting for the earth" of Warrior, "Operation mindcrime I" (not the horrible II) of Queensryche, or "Control and resistance" of Watchtower.
Everything is nearly perfect.
The voice of Davidson fits perfectly to the music of Gorle. Incredible how they let such a singer go ???????
