2 stars I am the first one to admit that just the thought of power metal fills me with dread. It is one of my least favorite music styles from this planet & further afield. This album really plays on all the strings I do not like.

Pompeous, over inflated sound is what this album brings my speakers and then my senses. The album is based on verse-choir-verse-solo-choir.... well, you get my drift. The vocals is a mix of growls and normal vocals. The guitar solos is diddely-dey-diggi-lo-diggi-lei which is far too common within the power metal genre. The melodies are pretty simple, although the big sound tries to dress up the songs into something greater than they are. The inclusion on this album of a dreadful version of the title track from the very popular movie & TV series Fame is something I cannot fathom. It devalues this album and the band.

There are some pretty good songs here on this album. But Fame is dreadful and so is a couple of other songs too. There is no great songs on this album at all. The solos is uninspired and only the tangent player and the vocalist escapes from this album with their good reputation intact. This album is best forgotten.
