I'm finding that Grimmest Hits (not a compilation, same as Bringing Metal To The Children wasn't a kids' book) picks up where Catacombs of the Black Vatican left off. In other words, it's fairly slow-palced and not all that heavy. Surprisingly, the guitars seem a bit muddy and pushed back in the mix except for the typically blazing solos, allowing Zakk's trying-oh-so-very-hard vocals to take the fore, unfortunately. This makes two fairly boring releases in a row, and three out of four if you go back to Shot To Hell. It's not awful, especially taking one song at a time, but it's far from the greatness of the first four studio albums, sadly. Also, despite the credits, I think the drummer is the only one besides Zakk who actually plays on the record. Zakk has historically done all the guitars and bass himself.

This album is growing on me, has taken a few spins though. I like tracks, #2, #5 and #12.

I listened to this again yesterday, and it is indeed better than I remember. Best tracks are "Seasons of Falter" (more of Zakk's word-salad, a la "Fields of Unforgiving"), "All That Once Shined," "Room Of Nightmares," "Disbelief," "The Day That Heaven Had Gone Away" (despite his grating pronunciation of "hev-awn") and especially "The Betrayal," one of Zakk's best and most lively songs in a while. There are two main issues with Grimmest Hits though, and they ar related, and both only get worse on 2021's Doom Crew, Inc. It's too long, at nearly an hour. And the reason why it's too long is often because Zakk's solos go on forever. He seems to have forgotten how to "play for the song." Maybe comes from producing the record himself, without anybody to say, "Let's cut that solo in half. You noodled for 32 bars, let's take the best parts of that and make it 16. And let's turn it down in the mix a little bit tooŚwe get it, you can shred."
