3 stars When the album started it had one of the most epic intros I have heard in a while, though it kind of tailed off towards the end of the track, I was hopeful though that this sophomore effort from this progressive metal band would be better than their first album. Well all I can say is this album pisses me off. The first 2 tracks are quite excellent, but then the band pretty much loses me for the next 7 tracks. Not that they are terrible songs, there are some amazing parts throughout each of these 7 tracks, but then there are sections that just derail the entire song and throws off the groove they had going. Then you get to track 10, Erised, and here you see the mind-blowing potential this band has. This is easily the best song on the album. The final 4 tracks have more of the inconsistencies. So what you have here is 1 amazing song, 2 great songs and then a roller coaster of music that will soar for one minute and then cut you down at the knee-caps the next. I wanted to love this album from the word go, but to me its just a little inconsistent, but don't take my word for it, perhaps other people just get it more than I do.
