TEN – Far Beyond The World +2 [Japan SHM-CD ‘TEN Essential Remaster Series’ including exclusive song] (2016) *0dayrox Exclusive*
Fronted by the unique Gary Hughes, Britain ’90s leading melodic hard rock / AOR band TEN celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2015. As the first press of their albums was difficult to obtain due to the long-term discontinuation, Japanese label Avalon / Victor Entertainment created this ‘TEN Essential Remaster Series‘, a SHM-CD carboard sleeve reissue of TEN’s best albums.
And to make the band’s 20th anniversary reissues more special, Hughes provided material from his archives and one unreleased song is added to each album. These unreleased songs are exclusive to this ‘TEN Essential Remaster Series’ not to be found into any other release.
While some TEN albums are criticized by its production – in fact, for their too many layers of sound – with 2001’s “Far Beyond The World” Gary Hughes & Co. opted for a more ‘straight’ AOR / Melodic Rock recording, and the result is one of the best CD’s of the decade for the genre.
It’s that good…
