3 stars Hmm part II , but not so very nice this time

Suspyre third album to date from 2008 named When time fades. Well this time they didn't manage to come near as great as the predecesor. First ,the main influences 'till now was Dream Theatewr in places and Symphony X, now on this album main influence is Evergrey, same dark and moody atmosphere on every piece, not bad but nothing special , realy. Second, the compositions are no longer so diverse and in the middle of the album I lose intrest. The musicianship is again very good, but the proble is arrangements, nothing realy awesome like on previous album, even the key passages are less dominant, only for atmosphere, only here and there vague are puted in front. We have here aswell some again the saxophone interludes withe the other instruments, but aswell some violin and even madolin passages, not quite bad, but sometimes I have the impression that the disonant sound of sax is a little to much in front and giving un unintristing combination, the violin parts are good and exactlky as is needed. The musicians did a good job, they've tried to bring something new in this genre, but this time they didn't quite succeded. I don't know but to me this album is usual, nothing special, thay now sound like other hundreds bands from prog metal scene. Not a piece in front, not a piece is realy weak but is lacking in somthing catchy. I will give 3 stars, becaus eof the profesinalism of the band, but in rest nothing realy impressive.I don't think this is their best album, I prefer 10 times more the previous one A great divide. If the next album will sound like this When time fades for sure I will lose intrest in their music, it's a shame because they beggining so good to climb in prog metal scene with the secocond album.
