3 stars " Evil falls on each of us there's nothing new. Who cares if you're a Muslim or a Jew? The awakened ones are nothing but a few. And the one to make the difference now is you! " - From All is One.

This album from 2013 shows a slightly calmer and more mainstream side of Orphaned Land. Less growls and churning dark music than previous releases. Which is not to say it is a bad release. I enjoy most of the album with a few exceptions. "All is One" is a fantastic opener with oriental touches that instantly drew me in. The next 2 songs, "Simple Man" and "Brother" I also particularly like. The rest of the album is a bit hit and miss but there are no weak numbers, just not as strong as the opening 3 tracks. I would give this a 3.5 rounded down to a 3 because my attention wanders towards the end.
