2 stars A DISAPPOINTING ALBUM!

I purchased this album after listening to the track on this site "When Shadows are gone" which I consider enjoyable. I had great expectations but soon all these expectations turned to deception. The album is not bad at all; I enjoyed it a lot the first time I listened to it but the problem was that their music did not grow on me.

Dreamscape is not such terrible band; in fact vocals are excellent, drumming is very complex and powerful, and keyboard lines are very eloquent. However, their evident immaturity, their poor production, and the lack of innovation made me lose interest in their music every time I play it. Dreamscape music is predictable and sometimes repetitive and boring. The few interesting isolated instrumental parts are obscured by the lack of musical cohesiveness and their bothering hard riffs. There is incongruent contrast between the soft keyboard lines and their noisy rhythm guitars that does not permit to enjoy the music itself.

I love the kind of albums that have homogeneity, a total musical concept that makes it really worthwhile. A homogeny album is good as a whole, not just that some of their good tracks. If you listen to the first three tracks of the album, you don't need to listen more because this album does not have anything more, so there is a serious lack of homogeneity.

Maybe with a better production, more instrumental passages with a more powerful presence of keyboard lines, and a higher number of virtuous guitar solos, this would have been a good album.

Personally I don't recommend this album to no one.

Good Progressions!!!

4 stars I first knew this band when i visited the Rising Sun Record over the Internet and i really interest in this band.First,i am sorry for bad English.Anyway,i have got the CD borrowed from my best friend who had the Metal Store here in Bali (Indonesia ),at first listen,this album blew me away,The music is completely progressive metal (complex and powerful ) with many abrupt changes in style and tempo but the vocal quality is very excellent and powerful.The track When Shadows Are Gone,Thorn In My Mind and Alone - Panterei Part I is really nice combination between complex drums,excellent vocal and atmosphere keyboard and tight bass.Judging by these songs, this is a great album,not boring and technical album.

Overall, this album is recommended to all the progressive metal fans who Loves DT,Andromeda and other technical Progressive Metal band.

4 stars After first experiencing Dreamscape with the album 'Revoiced', I heard this album already familiar with most of the material. 'Revoiced', featuring re-recordings of most of these songs, impressed me greatly, so it comes as no surprise that I like this album.

It's obvious to see that the band re-recorded all the best songs, as some of the songs that I wasn't previously familiar with definitely seem like weaker tracks. And whilst Huby Meisel has a very majestic voice, I've come to love Roland Stoll's renditions of these songs.

The band can be (like every Prog Metal band) easily compared to Dream Theater, but one thing I really like about Dreamscape is that all their songs are very melodic, so even the heavier riffs have a nice elegance to them. Especially with tracks like 'Thorn in My Mind', 'When Shadows Are Gone', 'Winter Dreams' and all three parts of 'Panterei'. All these songs nicely combine heavy guitar riffs with beautiful keyboards.

Overall this is some great quality Progressive Metal. If you're new to Dreamscape I strongly recommend 'Revoiced' instead of 'Very', but regardless, pardon the obvious pun, this is indeed a 'Very' good album.
