3 stars This is a fairly decent debut album by Kamelot, who at the time were nothing more than a generic Power Metal band. Progressive elements seen in later albums are rare and discreet, but overall there are some great compositions on this record.

There are very few keyboard parts and the musicianship is nowhere near that of most Prog/Power Metal bands, however there are some great songs with some truly memorable riffs, such as 'Eternity' and 'The Gleeman', and 'Etude Jongleur is a nice, though short, melody.

There isn't really much else to say about this album to be honest. If you're a fan of Kamelot then it's worth getting, and I think it's generally worth picking up for anyone if you can find it cheap somewhere. Sadly it doesn't feature Roy Khan (which is one of the main selling points for me when it comes to Kamelot). And the band has yet to adopt their more exotic, medieval song-writing style. There are a few gems on this album though, so it's not a complete tragedy, it's just unlikely that you'll choose to listen to this record very often.

Valarius | 3/5 |
