4 stars More of the same? Well... yes, but that doesn't prevent "Immortal?" from being entirely engaging and enjoyable-- Arena is just too good at what they do not to love them.

"Immortal?" features another mix of songs with lots of variety with monstrous hooks and melodies, but I found them to be slightly less complex than on "Visitor". Moreover, they do not make quite the impact that some of that album's tracks did. The extended piece "Moviedrome" is an exception to this observation, and showcases the bands talent's nicely; it's easy to see that it occupied most of their efforts in the recording of this album.

Sowden's vocals are perfect for the band's sound, and the group doesn't miss a beat incorporating his inflection and style into their own.

Great from start to finish.
