"Greatestits Vol. 1" - Special Collectors Limited Edition is an awesome collection (Vol. 1 is actually a 2 CD set) that includes 33 songs taken from all of Ted's work outside of Danger Danger. It includes re-masters of some of Ted's most popular songs from his 2 recent Solo CD's, Bonemachine, Melodica, Prophet, and songs done with other artists such as JK Northrup, Jack Frost, Jun Senoue, Vic Rivera, and rare unreleased stuff like original song demos, hard to find rare tracks including the impossible to find Xmas Song, the Japan exclusive Takoyaki Rock, and NEW STUFF too.

"Smile" is the second studio album by "Danger Danger" front-man Ted Poley, originally released in 2007. In contrast to its predecessor, "Smile" as a release falls clearly in the melodic rock/AOR genre perhaps partly influenced by the change in record label (Poley has been signed to "Frontiers" records since "Smile"). The melodies and vocal hooks are plentiful and the music is how melodic rock should be.
XYZ have returned with another killer release, too bad it was recorded under such tragic circumstances. Vocalist Terry Ilous wrote and dedicated this album to his son, who unfortunately passed away late last year. Ilous and drummer Paul Monroe are the only remaining members from the band’s original heyday, but Mark Diglio co-wrote several songs so there is no mistaking that this is an XYZ disc–and what a disc it is! The beauty of "Letter To God" is the fact that it contains something for everybody–80’s sounding rockers, an updated XYZ sound, heartfelt ballads and even reworking of two classic tunes.
