2 stars Sadly this album was a highly irritating listening experience for me. In my opinion "Barock" contains just boring poppy rock music with folk elements included, and the tracks lack the romantic mystery and such emotional approach which would appeal to me. The careful details are homogenized with the destructive basic 4/4 drumming backed up with in my opinion quite naive melodies. This bunch of fellows dressed up in live action roleplaying clothes can't reach my mind and appreciation. But though this album (and band) was not my cup of tea, some other listeners have enjoyed this album much more, so the appreciation of this album is surely only a question of style, as technically the record has been done well. I wouldn't recommend anybody to buy this blindly, but give it a listen first, and most preferably to their first album "Legend" instead of this if there is such possibility.
