2 stars Three albums in an eight year period. This is a retired pace, isn't it ? It smells as the end of a good band...

I strongly beleive that Bornemann (their leader) should have had a serious backup in terms of composition (especially for the latest releases "Metromania" and "RÔ") but more than anything, the need of a truely gifted vocalist who could have brought another (international) dimension to the band. Bornemann's vocals were at best bearable but not more.

This album is no different. On top of this, it features some electro-pop which is far from their roots. They are not convincing for a ? cent in this role. To find a good track on this album demands a gift that I do not possess.

Moments of joy will be scarce on this album. Some good fluting on the opening number "Call of the Wild" as well as during "Destination". A good but short guitar solo on "Racing Shadows" as well as during "Fire & Ice".

One very good song in its entirety : "Eclipse Of Mankind".

An awful one : "Jeanne D'Arc" which is a total nightmare with these stupid orchestrations and one of the poorest vocal performance from dear old Frank.

A useless effort frankly. Two stars.
