3 stars Invisible Circles it the third album by After Forever, whose music is actually better than their fame due to blend of different styles, state of the art vocals, attractive guitar riffing and pretty good synths. Let's not forget melody capabilities as demonstrated by track 3 and certain level of epics or glory.

Some extreme metal inclinations mainly in growling and occassional intensive bass drum are evidenced throughout the album but overall, this album is quite common metal volume friendly. Not all songs have a great compositional elements but it is the varied sound and advanced instrumental parts. Ballads with vocals and piano are also effective as in "Eccentric" I like two longer tracks "Through square eyes" and "Blind pain" that have wild growling but also acoustic passages, however having spoken passages interrupting music is annoying. At times, you can hear Ayeron influence - in the way vocals are handled with duets.
