4 stars Ghost Opera continues the line of decent power metal that Kamelot delivered on the preceding Black Halo.

The opener Solitaire / Rule the World is great again, this is as wonderful as this band gets. Catchy, warm, charming and staying clear of bombastic excesses that plague this style. Ghost Opera and The Human Stain continue the momentum. A notable difference with the preceding album would be the variation in the song material, something that is always appreciated on this side of prog land. The songs offer plenty of instrumentation, tempo and melodic styles. Also a simple pop tune like Blucher stands out because of its symphonic arrangement. Love You To Death, Up Through the Ashes and Silence of The Darkness are more standard Kamelot fare but entirely enjoyable at that.

Anthem brings some melodramatic relief. Eden Echo doesn't bring much new on the table but the bonus Pendulous Fall is a nice moody bonus. The album offers little you haven't heard from Kamelot before, but because of the excellent vocals and consistency of the material, this is an excellent album in its field and 4 stars are sure appropriate.

Bonnek | 4/5 |
