Prog Reviewer
3 stars This is the second and last studio album by the band, and it is somewhat inferior to the debut. It is less exciting, and more spotty. It rocks harder, but these guys can't rock out that well. And last of all: it sounds like Spocks Beard.

1. Duel with the devil 5.5/10 : This Epic is a bit too long! The introduction feels very long and boring, The vocals in the first section are very weak, some of the jams seem random (tho impressive), the melodies can be a bit repetitive, just like the song is. Good ideas stretched too much.

2. Suite Charlotte Pike 4/10 : This is not good. It sounds very beatle-ish, but the melodies and jams are much weaker than anything you expect from the beatles. It tries too much to be a 2nd Abbey Road.

3. Bridge across forever 5.5/10 : A nice but somewhat dull piano ballad. It sounds like a Spock's Beard ballad.

4. Stranger in your soul 6/10 : Named once as the 'mother of all epics' in the Live DVD. Well, it is long ... It contains many things that are very likable, like its violin driven introduction, and the 'hanging in the balance' section which contains an amazing heavy metalish riff. The rest of the song is pretty, but a little boring , and the jams sometimes sound very uninspired.

My Grade : C-

Zitro | 3/5 |
