3 stars I agree with everyone that Evergrey can be listed among the (Prog/)Metal Gods we are blessed with on this earth. Their melodies are briljant and the guitar riffs are very cool. But this is the only Evergrey album that bores me after a while. To me 'In search of truth' is their best album followed by 'Recreation day'. I listen those albums often, unlike the Inner Circle. 'Waking up blind' is the worse song on this album, it is far too slow and boring. It is typical to Evergrey albums to include heavy songs as well as semi-acoustic songs which is very cool, think of the Trilogy of the Damned on the Recreation day-LTE. (this song appeared also seperated on S,D,T) Appearantly Englund and band thought they had to continue this tradition and wrote waking up blind. If only they hadn't, because they're not really good at it. If I want to listen to music that is less heavy I'll play mull muzzler from James Labrie or anything like that not Evergrey

The concept of this album is once again brilliant as is 'When the walls go down'.

Do not misunderstand me, I bought the album and I'm glad I did, but this isn't by far their best.
