2 stars I have had this album in my CD for ages before I declared myself brave enough to review it.

My gripes with this album is longer than my list of friends. The vocals is thin and over the top dramatic. The vocalist tries to imitate an opera singer, but fails miserably. If I only could turn off the vocals......... Which turns the spotlight on the music. That is a bad idea, in fact. The music is a blend of horror movies influenced heavy rock and neo-prog. A pretty bad combination which massages my ears like an ice cube covered with barbed wire.

There are a few good melody lines here and the keyboards are good. The guitars are pretty generic. Both the solos and the rhythm guitars. In short, this album sounds too theatrical and forced. It is simply too much when subtlety would had been just the thing.

2 stars (barely)
