4 stars When I first heard about Frost I got quite interested, it was said to be a very interesting new band so I had to check it out. I bought the album and I must say, I was pretty impressed from the start, that is for where the larger part of the album was concerned. And then we're talking about the last two songs. Because of the very long (and fabulous) epic these two songs cover almost 2/3 of the total time. If we look at these two songs it's a sensational album. Black light machine is on itself not so impressive until after a few minutes and also at the end of the song the guitar solos break loose. This is absolutely fantastic, it lifts the entire song to a very high level. It's no news that John Mitchell is one of the best in the business and that's what he is proving in this song. The epic Milliontown is what you may expect from a song of this length, a marvellous composition with lots of variety and turnovers and of course instrumental passages. But what disappoints me is that if a band (or a person in the band) can write great songs like this, why don't they do it more often ?

I mean: the prove they can, but the other 4 songs are more or less disappointing and devaluate the album. And what's worse: they prevent me from giving this album 5 stars, so it has to be 4.
