5 stars Although this is "only" a fanclub release, it certainly does not sound like one and is much more than that. It is an album of highest quality, like everything Threshold ever release. With its mixture of alternative, acoustic and unreleased tracks, it is like an altogether new Threshold studio album, even to me who has all their official releases. It's not as if they have dug out inferior versions of already existing tracks, but more like present them in a completely new and different style, always just as captivating as the originals, if not more. It makes me wonder why the two previously unreleased tracks on Replica (Endless Sea and Torn To Shreds) never made it on any album, as they both are absolutely fantastic and make getting this release an absolute MUST. Another highlight for me is the synthetic remix version of "Opium", which, if you're open minded enough to like electronic influences, will completely blow you over. Replica might be a fanclub release and only available through the official Threshold website, but it can just as well be the perfect stepping stone for anyone who wishes to take a first dive into the diverse, deep, powerful, versatile and simply mindblowing sea of musical wonders that make this band so special and unique.
Metanoia | 5/5 |
