3 stars Excellent album... Not really progressive, but a good act of power metal with some complex passages.

If you are searching for a band in the vein of Dream Theater of Symphony X, you are in the wrong way here... This is the only Evergrey's album I've heard, and maybe their previous albums were more progressive... And although this album is far from the true progressive metal, I must hear more music from this people. Because "The Inner Circle" is excellent... The dark vein they give to their power metal makes it very personal, with the help of the powerful and sensitive voice of Tom S. Englund, a great songwriter and singer.

It's also difficult to choose a song here... The album can be heared in its integrity without any problem. In The Wake of the Weary, A Touch of Blessing, Harmless Wishes, More than Ever, Faith Restored... This album is plenty of good tracks. Maybe the concept isn't too clear, it's a little dim, not too well developed... But that's not very important. The quality of the music makes you forget the weak idea of the concept...

Conclusion: if you like dark metal in the vein of Pain of Salvation or Wolverine, but more power oriented and not so progressive... This is your album. It really deserves a good listening.

My rating: ***1/2
