3 stars After hearing great albums like In Search of Truth, Recreation Day, and The Inner Circle i had a pretty good feeling Monday Morning Apocalypse would be able to capture the same magic those albums brought..ehhhh well to be honest i was kinda wrong. I mean its not bad there are some great songs on here like the title track, Obedience, Till Dagmar, and Still in the Water but most of the songs to me feel like Evergrey is backing off a bit from the power house house that they are known for. Seems like they lost the progression and decided to go more for a straight forward sound which is okay but its not quite there with Evergrey. Plus this album isn't a concept album which kinda dissappointed as these guys make great conept albums but i can live with it. Plus i know they don't make long songs but these are just two short i feel like they should've branched out more in their music. But hey you can't wish for everything right. The players well its good and bad at the same time. Tom and Denrik well of course Tom does well with the vocals and harmonies as well with doing great work with the strings and choir as well as Denrik which i'll admit i liked the whole effects on the solos which was a nice touch on the album in fact this was one of the main things keeping to dislike the album. Rikard oh man i hate to say this he is a great player nice piano on Till Dagmar but honestly i felt this was one of his worst performances i just didn't get much out of him ya know i mean i hate saying that but that's how i feel i guess. And well Micheal didn't do much so i wan't expecting much out of him. Then you have Jonas i give him respect for being a great metal drummer but there were times where i loved the stuff he did but then there were times where i was like okay why can't he just do something better. so anyway this obviously is probably my least favorite Evergrey album i mean its not bad in some parts but at times i wish it was better. So if your a big fan like me get this album and give it a shot. But if you only want the best from them don't waste your money on this one.
