Same formula in compositions, fat sound, bombastic arrangements, catchy tunes like for ex:Prisoner Of Pride or the title track Ten More Tales Of Grand Illusion. good compositions, great atmosphere, same combination between melodic power metal and progressive metal whre the guitar duo and the voice of Lance King is the main attraction of the band so far.
