3 stars All in all an undeniably fine follow-up to the monstrous "Black Halo", but "Ghost Opera" treads very familiar ground, and the album offers us very few new ideas. Kamelot's trademark elements are all present in almost overflowing amounts, making the frequent sound of violins and savage riffing almost stale, not to mention the fact that the lyrics are very, very similar to the band's previous two releases (enough with Helena already!).

That being said, "Ghost Opera" has some very attractive melodies and instrumental moments, and the songwriting features a few moments blending the group's metal/balladry in new and more cohesive sounding ways. A fine purchase for fans how will more than likely still appreciate Kamelot's sound, but I look forward to new ideas the next time around.
