3 stars I have to agree with everyone else that "Crimson II" pales somewhat when compared to "Crimson I". This is still an excellent album but for me there is too much emphasis on the growls and aggressive guitars and less on the atmosphere and clean vocals which hurts this quite a bit in my opinion. It's the contrasts that really make "Crimson I" a keeper. I also agree with Bonnek's assessment of the production. It's not that great. At times the growls are almost lost in the sound so it's also lacking in that area as well when compared to the original "Crimson". The other thing is that "Crimson I" is one long piece that flows for 40 minutes while this one is broken down into 9 songs.

Anyway as I mentioned earlier this is still a good album and it certainly "rocks out" heavily at times.
