4 stars I have to thank the Prog Archives for helping me to discover Kamelot. I LOVE this band. 'Karma' is a fantastic album, and every bit as good as their 'The Black Halo' and 'Epica' CD's (thats 'Epica' the album NOT the band,although they ain't bad either). 'Regalis Apertura' is a stately,restrained opener, quickly followed by two powerhouse tracks,'Foerever' and ''Wing of Despair'. Both have catchy hooks,excellent playing and fantastic vocals from Roy Kahn. 'The Spell' is slightly less pacy,but still brimming with energy. It reminds me a little of Queensryche in places. It really is an excellent track, and you will soon wonder why you have never heard of Kamelot,if that is indeed the case. 'Don't You Cry' is a tear-jerking ballad, nice violin and acoustic guitar feature and Kahn's vocals are heart-rending and very moving. 'Karma',the title track, is another up- tempo prog-metal masterpiece,superb drumming and nice orchestral touches. There are 12 tracks on this album and the first 6 are simply superb. The rest of the album is as strong as the opening half. I am also reminded of Symphony X in places (no bad thing). My version of the CD also featured a bonus track 'Ne pleure pas' - the French language version of 'Don't You Cry'. Thanks again Prog Archives. Essential.
