2 stars Musically very good. The vocals, Patrick Lundstrom, are very Freddie Mercury like and detract from an otherwise great album. If you can stomache the over-dramatic delivery, you'll love the album. I played this one over and over, and never could get away from the sappy vocals. I really wanted to like it. I hid it away for a week, two weeks... Desensitized myself, put it back on... Ugh... Stop the caterwauling please??? This ain't the opera... it's Progressive Rock for cricks sake. Please Hans, Roine... dump the Freddy clone, he drags ya down. Get Gildenlow, the man can SING. Daniel Gildenlow would raise this production to a 4 star. Sorry, I tried, I really did.

Actually, I traded this disc in and bought some Flower Kings stuff. Next album, get a real singer!
