2 stars This is a tough one for me. First of all the way they combine Classical music with Rock music is not that influencial, significant or new in my opinion when the NEW TROLLS did it 2 years earlier. Also the vocals really are not that good, maybe annoying is the word. Then there is the album cover which is one of the worst i've seen. That cover alone kept me from listening to it for months. Haha.

I'm not a fan of orchestral or Classical music in the first place. Sure there are some excellent passages on this album. It's interesting that the first two tracks are kind of spacey and dreamy. There is some fantastic guitar and organ in the fourth song. Also in the ninth song we get more killer organ runs.The start of the eleventh track is great but unfortunately it changes after a minute.

This is one is a big disappointment for me. 2.5 stars.
