4 stars "A Sense of change", the follower of the genious "Steps", surprises with a new vocalist, Jogi Kaiser, who replaced Franz Herde, who was the only weak point of "Steps". The trend of their lowering in complexity and heaviness continues here and reaches the highest point. The songs are still quite complex, but they realeased from idols, like watchtower, but go ahead taking some influences from bands like Rush. The holzwarth brothers are awesome as usual and Jogi kaiser sounds fantastic. Markus Steffen, the guitarist, has not any glorious moments but anyway he pleases with his guitar work, full of apeggios, chords and some soft riffs. But Markus Steffen wasn't just the guitarist, he wrote all the lyrics which are fantastic, some of the best lyrics I've ever heard from a band. The drums are stunning and elate with lots of breaks and time changes, the bass play awesome and is an essential addition for the music. The vocals are great, yes they are! Finally Sieges Even accomplish to get a good vocalist and I'm happy about that. Not a masterpiece, I think the tracks overall are not varied enough, the sound is ok, and they are "quite" original and I often have the feeling Dream Theater know this album! ;)
