5 stars An album with two faces; a rockin' Dark Side and an excellent soaring symphonic rock Side with four excellent epics. But nevertheless it all fits well on one album, but it needs more as one spin in your desk. They've left the Celtic edge what was so characteristic for their first two albums. And so there isn't much room for Angela and her amazing flute, and that is a lost I think, because I like her playing extremely well. On the other hand the contributions of Ian are greater as ever, the rhythm team has improved and again it seems that Heathers voice has made another big step to higher grounds. Carpe Diem and the title track are classic masterpieces already. The sound quality is superb and I really enjoyed the fresh live sound of the whole album. Maybe that is because a new engineer was brought in and the proffesional surrounding of the Chapel Studios has a positive effect. Bryan: "... we never have used this kind equipment as this before... one thing I really wanted to have for the album is a kind of fresh sound, white moist, fresh nice production sound, think the songs deserve that...". A few moments before he mentioned that they didn't have used all the posibilities of the Chapel Studios, so to speak with Bryans words "...there will be a lot beautiful moments to come." But first enjoy this one!
