5 stars The first time I listened to this album I was speechless. I hungered for the music of each and every one of the songs as I waited for this album for a long time - and when every song ended I couldn't wait to hear it again.

2 weeks have passed since the day I got the album, and I have listened to it twice a day, EVERY day. This masterpiece does not bore me, unlike so many other albums.

Yes, Rusell Allen's voice is a bit rougher than on other Symx albums and that is a change. Changes, however, are not always bad. I must admit I like his voice when it is clear, but listening to him sing like on Paradise Lost is a welcomed change - and of course there are the tracks Paradise Lost and The Sacrifice where you can still hear him and understand why he is such an excellent singer.

Overall, one of the best Symx albums I've heard so far, I liked it a lot from the moment I started listening to it and evey second after that. The songs are just so intense, and really, you don't get a break for a second - a good quality in my opinion.

Definitely 5 stars!
