EDITORS’ NOTES

As a definitive metal band of the '90s, Pantera starts its Complete Collection with 1990’s Cowboys from Hell and follows through with 1992’s Vulgar Display of Power, 1994’s Far from Driven, 1996’s The Great Southern Trendkill, and 2000’s Reinventing the Steel. This Collection is completed with the 1997 live album Official Live: 101 Proof. Of course, hardcore fans will note the decision to omit 1988’s Power Metal album, which—unlike the three albums before it (Metal Magic, Projects in the Jungle, and I Am the Night)—at least sounded like the group Pantera became on these later studio albums. But Cowboys from Hell was the album on which Diamond Darrell became Dimebag Darrell and Phil Anselmo unquestionably found his voice. Like other official collections, Pantera’s Complete Collection features the original albums and nothing more. No bonus tracks, no b-sides, no rarities: just the original studio albums as they were meant to be. 

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Holy Jesus! ,

Go buy at a store

I hate to use the rating system this way, but the price is way to much. A physical copy of this collection goes around 15-20 dollars (I know since I bought it at best buy). Love the music, but geez this is way overpriced.

PROBLEMS

1. "Cowboys from Hell": incorrect version; missing classic intro (suspicious)

2. Tracks are ordered incorrectly.

3. 200% price increase.

4. Prior purchases of are not credited; the collection is exclusive (not at all suspicious)

"Far FROM Driven" Hahaha

Come on iTunes get it right, it's "Far BEYOND Driven!" In the iTunes Editors' Notes, it says, Far FROM Driven, which is Far FROM Right! And another thing, this statement in the iTunes Editors' Notes states, "Of course, hardcore fans will note the decision to omit 1988's Power Metal album" is fkn crazy! That's one of the hottest albums they recorded, haha, you just can't get it! iTunes of course, can't get it! Man who writes these reviews? I'm not reading them anymore!
