4 stars After 3 years, DT returns to his more classic sound with wall of sound behind the heavier tracks and flowing acoustic songs. Thankfully, he kept collaboration with Anneke Van Giersbergen whose vocal lights up every song. The first a-capella short ouverture informs the listener that he won't come short of harmonies. "True North" continues in the melodic vocal driven song flow. Gone are the overblown massive epic tracks from the last albums, most music here is more stripped down but don't expect just a guitar, bass, drums and vocals, that would be too plain from DT. "Kingdom" is the best prototype of the typical DT's style with a strong melody. ALso, note the opera vocal by DT himself. A few sublime tracks such as "Divine" keep the sunny spirit high. Angel has an almost Christmas-like ending with vocal chorus. This is the album that will be praised equally by many DT's fans and beyond.
