3 stars Finaly, Images of eden releasing their third album after almost 5 year gap from previous one. Issued this year, february 2011 at Lifeforce records named Rebuilding The Ruins is a continuation of what they offerd on Sunlight of the spirit, but this time with some power metal parts included here and there. Some changes in memebers stuff, a new drumer Chris Lucci and the keybords duty now are left to handle to Dean Harris, because this instrument was part Gordon Tittsworth skills to be managed in before, who also was busy with bass and vocal arrangements aswell. Now the album has a solid sound, very full, the guitar chops are great, on some pieces sre very strong like on title track, My stigmata or Native to this land, excellent musicianship for sure. Again same problem, to me of course, maybe to others is ok like this, but the keybords are left to background only, ok, the arrangements are well played and fits perfectly with guitar and overall sound, but I wanted more combinations between this instrumen and the rest, because gives a much more complexity and in same time melodic aproach to the music. So, neverthe less a good album that desearves 3 stars, not so good as previous one, but still enjoyble, yet nothing realy outstanding , only good and nothing more. Fans of prog metal can listen to this band because has some good album in their pockets.
