5 stars This is a fantastic release from Vanden Plas. Fall from the Skies is another explosive track, much like January Sun, that anchors another stellar release. The Ghost Xperiment - Awakening is more of what makes Vanden Plas great. If you already love their sound, then you will get more of it with this release. The Ghost Xperiment - Awakening may be underrated, quietly came out of nowhere, and could be in discussions as one of their top albums. It is that good. Anyone that loves progressive metal, should definitely give this album a try. It is a great place to start for newcomers to Vanden Plas, but it is still important to dive into their best albums Christ 0, The God Thing, and Beyond Daylight. The Ghost Xperiment - Awakening is a hard hitting album with few soft moments like what was presented in the Chronicles Of The Immortals - Netherworld. I keep returning to this album, and keep finding new things to love about it. It is bombastic, heavy, and loaded with many Vanden Plas types of moments. The guitar riffs alone make it a must hear album.
