1 stars Ah yes, another Evergrey album has arrived. I must admit that when I heard that 3 members of the band were leaving I was shocked but then I remember what happened last time there was a major member change, back in 2001. We got In Search of Truth which many consider to be Evergrey's finest hour. The frustration and high emotions which entrench themselves during a breakup, usually find a way of emerging through the music(which is good for the listener). Overall, I am fairly happy with this album. (Changed my mind, it sucks) After hearing Torn, I was worried that the band had ran out of inspiration. It really felt generic and tedious, and you can almost tell that band was disintegrating. Well here comes new guys and new energy, and there are some real highlights on Glorious Collision, but still it comes off as generic. I was listening to it today and actually got bored, and turned it off. These long drawn out choruses are driving me nuts like "I'm Frooooooooooozeeeeeen" instead of just saying I'm frozen. Its just not that interesting. I enjoyed the first listen just for the novelty of it, but it wore off way faster then I expected, so I guess this is the point where I wash my hands of Evergrey. P.S. dumb album name and kinda cheesy album art, but whatever. Should've named it "From the ashes" or something referencing new life and rejuvenation, but whatever. (Changed my mind, it sucks)
