2 stars Crimson Glory - 'Strange and Beautiful' 2.5 stars

Neither strange nor beautiful, just bad.

With the departure of a guitarist, an essential of the band, and not to be replaced to further the damage and change in drummer started things off negatively right off the bat. The vocalist does not do a good job either, he loses most of his energy (high soprano) in substitution for a more laid back sound which oddly enough sounds like Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose.

The music suffers incredibly due to these negative features. Most of the songs just sound like ballad after ballad. Just mostly simple riffs and acoustic patterns just producing a bad album all in all.

Not really recommended to anyone, the line-up changes really did this band in.
