5 stars I've discovered Vanden Plas some years ago when they released their album Beyond Daylight. I actually purchased the album knowing only the song Cold Wind (which I think is a wonderful song). While listening to it, I kindda was dissapointed with the rest of the songs. I know this album has been praised alot as the best Vanden Plas album but now that I've heard Christ 0, I believe this will change. I decided to give another try to Beyond Daylight since I found Christ 0 so good and I must say that I now appreciate the album. You can only appreciate the talent of the band once you really get accustomed to their sound. Christ 0 is the best album I've heard in many years and I listen to many genres of music other then progressive. While Beyond Daylight sometimes sounded a bit like Dream Theater, I think Christ 0 has a more theatrical and grandiose atmoshpere. Every song is well composed. The music is sometimes backed with choirs and an orchestra which brings the whole album to a higher level. All the instruments blend well together. The singing is quite delectable and Kuntz has a really strong and clear voice. In conclusion, the band suceeded in creating an amazing atmoshpere that evolves through the album. HIghlights : January Sun, Postcard to God and Christ 0.
