4 stars mesmerising! its very hard for me to be critical of this after song, this latest Redemption album hit me and hit me hard. i've read some reviews here and elsewhere that they are just another clone band trying to fit into the prog metal genre. well, its my favourite genre and Redemption fit very well...

Peel: the catchy chorus is the first thing that gets you and this one's all about Ray - but listen carefully and you'll see every member of the band pulling his weight here. 9/10

Walls: the lyrics are standout for me here - even inspired me to write something of my own. 9/10

Leviathan Rising: starts of mediocre but the great riffs pull it up to a really strong closure. 8/10

Black and White World: super keys, super vocals, super lyrics, interesting rhythm changes - one of the best on the album 10/10

Unformed: again, a lacklustre start (for Ray) and then builds up to a strong second half. 8.5/10

Keep Breathing: Ray at his best...haunting from the start, super instrumental interludes. another star song. 9.5/10

Another Day Dies: a Ray and James duet - anyday! amazing riff kicks in around a minute or so in and from there, its all Bernie/ Nick land - one of the best solos i've heard...9.5/10

What Will You Say: the only weak one on this set but thats only because of the competition. still a good song. 7.5/10

Fistful of Sand: could have done without the extra noodling in the middle. 7.5/10

Love Kills Us All / Life in One Day - mini-epic 11-min closer. i love it when bands do these long closers that roll all of the album into one song - kind of like a reprise and when the other stuff is so good, it leaves you wishing it would never end. 11 minutes is far too short for this one. 10/10
