Believe is a Japanese compilation spotlighting the four Savatage albums that have been released in that Japan on the Zero label. The album is intended to keep Savatage material on display in Japanese music stores. Believe is a selection of tracks that the band feels showcase key turning points for the band during the 1990's. The extensive liner notes include a well written track by track description and band history by Clay Marshall.
No previously unreleased tracks were released on this album.
Though technically the song "Believe" was never released on Zero, but what would any Savatage compilation be without the song? Not Complete. So proper dues were paid and it became the title track.
The Best and the Rest was a compilation with tracks largely selected by a fan vote. Believe is more of what the band thinks is its best work, and the purpose of this compilation is to showcase key turning points for the band during the 1990's.
The album has an extensive Savatage biography and detailed liner notes, including background information behind every song represented here. They were written by Clay Marshall, and appear inside the album in both English and Japanese.
