3 stars This is the last album I bought from The Gathering, basically to see what it would sound like without the voice of Anneke van Giersbergen. Well it's not a bad album, songs like "On A Wave" and "Like Fountains" are quite good, not to mention the beautiful ballad "Nobody Dares". The singer uses clean vocals (in contrast to the first album), and there are even female vocals on a couple of songs. However, many songs are repetitive and a little "flat", and clearly the band was still looking for their style at that time.

Rating: 71/100
