5 stars I must be quick, and to be honest - there isnt really much to say. This album is extremely underated. Mabey its beacuse i was going through a "transitional" music phase in my life or mabey beacuse i can assosiate this album with happy memories - whatever. This album is superb. Hands down.

The music is fast and heavy. But there is loads of melody packed in. The music is a unique mix between prog/power and melodic metal. Its so clean, crisp, clear. Beautiful. I love it! Im just listening to Soul Society now, and it cant be called anything but magnificent.

Khan's voice soars and Youngblood's guitar weaves intricate melody lines all the time. Its dark - but full of majestic powerful moments of beauty. Truly epic, with a real fantasy feel to it.

Its a shame Ghost Opera isnt nearly as good as Epica, Karma or this. This is their masterpice - this or Epica. A band that has reached maximum capacity and now, as evident from their latest album, on the downfall. This is their swansong - get it.

Whacky | 5/5 |
