3 stars The album's beginning - the militaristic orchestral intro, followed by elongated vocal exercises and a blast of crunchy guitars and powerful chorus - immediately introduces the new Galahad. Heavy, melodic and dramatic. Pretty catchy stuff, if you can stand the over-done vocals. Too bad Arena already did this 12 years ago. This feeling of uneasiness permeates the rest of the album. Even during the more restrained passages you expect to be blasted by loud guitars and powerful chorus. The album ends strongly with two of the longer songs. Seize the Day incorporated some techno beats and another sing-a-long chorus. Sleepers is a remake from 1995. Basically what they did is reinforce the edges. The industrial-ish intro became even more industrial (and unneccesary, in my opinion), the laughing bit more maniacal and the ending long solo even more typically Pink Floyd-meets-metal sister bands like Arena and Threshold are fond of.
