It is a compilation of songs from 1988 until 1999, released on albums of these years, which are mostly no longer available.
Some unreleased songs of the beginnings and fully remastered, this compilation gives a full view of the bands first musical period, until they split up in 1999, after beeing one of the most influencial German bands of the genre.

and at the 25th anniversary of the Still Patient? the band returns to the studio and back on stage!
After five CDs and numerous live performances on stage, in concert and at festivals the band Still Patient? belonged to one of the influential Bands of Gothic Rock in Germany. The band decided to stop working together in 1999. But in 2012 they decided to reunite with some former and some new band members - the story continues.
Strong, temporary, atmospheric!
Still Patient? is reinventing itself without forgetting the past. The mix of traditional Gothic Rock combined with electronic elements and dark melodies has been transferred to today and seems fresh and stronger than ever before. This is visible in the new recordings of some of the old songs as well as in the newer material.
