4 stars Yet another magnificent piece from Kamelot, this album is. Solitaire and Rule the World make a spectacular intro: powerful, catchy, progressive, all the things I love! Ghost Opera comes in and emerges into a powerful attack of violin and guitar. The Human Stain comes in heavy, keeps heavy, and leaves heavy. Blucher , one of the best songs on the album, comes in with a symphonic intro and leaves with some nice melodies left behind. Love You to Death lacks any pure metal sound, but the slower tempo and softer melody allows you and the music to breathe, despite the lyrics about love......... which isn't always the best in progressive music. Up Through the Ashes comes in strong as a steady attack of bass, symphony, and guitar. Mourning Star begins slowly and then progresses into a more epic body. Silence in the Darkness is a nice steady attack but seems like its more poppy than the rest of the album. Anthem is a slow song that, I think, too abruptly slows the album down. Endenecho is a nice finisher, with that steady attack that Kamelot is known for, and also nice symphonic melodies.

Best Songs:

- Solitaire/Rule The World duo (must listen to them IN ORDER and TOGETHER!)

- Ghost Opera

- Blucher

- Up Through the Ashes

- Silence in The Darkness
