5 stars This album, for me, is an absolute masterpiece. It's hard to "get into" and get it to start to grow, but once it does, you will agree with me that this album it's incredible.

From the orchestrated and symphonic calmed parts to the heaviest metal riffing, I think this is a great album, full of melodies, classical licks, powerful singing, haunting choruses...

This album is full of metal songs filled with (neo)/classical passages thrown in the middle, and it's great to give the music a time to breathe and for us to prepare for the next song. I find this album really vocal based (sometimes the instruments repeat the same licks again and again for the vocals to develop the concept further), but I think you won't complain, Rusell Allen is one of the best singers I've ever heard.
