3 stars This is a good album, a good metal album. Only good, nothing more, nothing less. But this is the worst Evergrey album since "The Dark Discovery" too. Evergrey has entered the dangerous territory of change their musical style for comercial purposes; the result: a NOT prog album. All of you that don't like metal must rest one star to my puntuation because this release only have a metal atraction based on strong riffs and cool chords.

The songs structure is poor, very poor, almost all the tracks are of 3 or 4 minutes without any progression and without a real presence of keyboards, except the great "Till Dagmar", a 1:40 piano piece very beautyfull.

People who like progressive face of Evegrey only have to listen "In the Search of Truth" and then compare it whith this "Monday Morning Apocalypse" (it seems that the title of the album is very comercial too) so they can realize of the big difference existing between this two albums and how progressive Evergrey was and how progressive is now.

Anyway, and although my review can seem negative, I like this album, but, like a I said, like a metal album. I give it 3 stars because there is nothing bad in this work, I like all the songs, they are very catchy and easy to hear with power and beauty melodies and great guitar solos, but the truth is that this a "use and throw" album. You like it for a while (one or two weeks) and then you just get tired of it because of the absence of any prog element that can made it interesting in a longer way.

Not bad album, but, obviousy, neither essential.
