Prog Reviewer
4 stars The first album in Labyrinth's Return to Heaven Denied series is a solid slice of no-nonsense power metal, with cheese strictly rationed, tight compositions, and competent performances from all the participants. I don't hear anything on it which bowls me over with its originality, but I can enjoy the album from start to finish without finding it trite or irritating in sections, and when you find power metal as hit-or-miss as I do that's an achievement in itself. (In particular, it's nice to see in Andrew McPauls a power metal keyboardist who is able to take a somewhat subtle and original approach to the music rather than laying on the orchestral effects and bombast thick.)
Warthur | 4/5 |
