From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars What most people want to know: - New singer Mike DiMeo / vocals is a notch below Jorne Lande, in fact someone may prefer him as his vocals do not dominate.

A lot better than many power metal releases as the drummer, - Mike Terrana, of Rage varies his drumming style.

However, like Rage, they will still be 2nd tier to heavy weights like Helloween, Gamma Ray and Blind Guardian because of their songwriting.

Songs / Tracks Listing 1. Phoenix Rising 2. Warrior's Cry 3. Lost And Gone 4. Keeps me Burning 5. Take Me Over 6. I'm Gonna Win 7. Watching The World 8. Call The Gypsy 9. Trust In You 10. Masterplan 11. Enemy 12. Heart Of Darkness

Of the songs above, Take, Me Over, I'm Gonna Win and Watching the World are in the same class as those groups mentioned above.

I give it a 4. 3.8 to be exact, because it is much better than good, but not reaching excellent, especially since I seldom given 5 reviews as essential (these are hall of fame recordings deserving this)
