It is a bit skimpy and, by now, a bit out of date, but Now That I've Found You: A Collection
is probably the best single disc introduction to her music.
Symphonic metal, eh? In my youth I was a bit of a metal head but I do not believe I have ever dipped my toe in that particular genre. Are there any albums in particular that you would recommend?
