Decadent is a special compilation album aimed at fans and followers of the band. It consists of various radio edits, alternative versions, and remixes of familiar album tracks. The material represents the period of the first four studio albums: Wounded Land, Psychedelicatessen, Extinct Instinct, and Clone (incidentally my four favourite Threshold albums).

The radio edits are the most dispensable as they don't add anything to (indeed, they simply subtract from) what is already available on the band's regular albums. The alternative versions are generally not very interesting either. The exceptions are Intervention (a track from Psychedelicatessen that originally featured Glynn Morgan on vocals and is here featuring Damian Wilson) and Change (originally from Clone and is here presented in an acoustic version). These are worth a hearing if you're a fan of the band.

The two final tracks are the most surprising and deviant. We get Club/Dance remixes of Paradox and He Is I Am. Almost needless to say, these are awful and should best be avoided altogether.

Only for fans and collectors
