The Truth
5 stars Lets admit these guys have written some good stuff in the past but this to me is by far their best! One More Time is a nice way to start the album with a catchy chorus, but Love Is The Only Answer is the second best of the four epics with some amazing guitar parts by the Swedish guitar god Roine Stolt. Trading My Soul is a sad song, "It's not the end but I sense it is near," but it is an awesome vocal performance by Roine who isn't known for his vocals. The Sum of No Reason is the best track on the album to me. It starts off pretty slow but turns into some roaring synths and guitars after a while giving it almost the Thick as a Brick kind of feel as it changes tempo. Flight 666 is a nice instrumental break and although my least favorite, Life In Motion is a very good song. Roine's voice takes a while to get comfortable with because it's so odd but eventually it sticks to you. Another masterpiece guys!
The Truth | 5/5 |
