4 stars Third album of this swedish prog metal band so far from 2008 entitled Mercy falls. Another well example how must sound these days prog metal with a touch of hard rock and even opposite - power metal in places. While I prefer the previous album better than this one, Mercy falls capture the auditorium with excelent musicianship and tight arangements. The music is nothing grounbreaking or never heared befor, but is full of shining moments in prog metal The voice of Tommy Karevik is brilliant and shows how talented is this guy, super voice , fits like a glove in this kind of music. Another musician that impressed me much is the keyboard player Andreas Söderin, great solos and brilliant arrangements through out all album. This is a concept album, I don't get it really what's all about, but I think is about a car accident and all the stories that gone from this event. I didn't get it the concept maybe because , the album is a little too long and I've lost the core after middle of the album, if there were 15-20 min shorter than were ok. Anyway a strong album full of catchy interplays between keys and guitar, marvelous vocal parts, far from being a bad album, maybe at same level with the predecesor, but less convinceing. I will give 3.5 rounded up to 4 , from entire 15 pieces, 4 or 5 are mindblowing, showing that Seventh Wonder is a real power in prog metal world, desearving a better view and a place in top of the bands from today. I also was a little surprise that is no review so far, besides mine, only 8 ratings, but is ok because are quite high, a rate that they will desearve all the way.
