2 stars Well it just gets worse and worse. With the Inner Circle Evergrey almost complete the transformation from a good prog/ Metal band with great thrashy riffs to a simple heavy metal band.

Iīm really trying not to turn this one off, as I am bored out of my mind. Itīs not bad, but it really is boring and repetitive. Where did all those great riffs go ? When did Tom S. Englund grow so mature that he got to be this sensitive ? I really urge you to listen to Solitude + Dominance + Tragedy and In Search of Truth instead of this. The only song I kind of remember is Ambassador which has a great memorable riff which reminds me of Solitude + Dominance + Tragedy. There are a few other places on the album that Evergrey play some acceptable riffs, but itīs so seldom that I donīt even remember where.

The production is again in the organic style metal, which I find uninspiring.

I wonīt say anything more, as you can clearly sense my disapointment with this band.

UMUR | 2/5 |
