3 stars An average album... good riffs... good lead vocals... nothing more...

Finally I can write a review without the word "great" on the headline... This is my first time I've heard this band... and even when you can really enjoy some pasages from some songs, at the end is kind of a record of chessy-pop-metal songs with some keyboards... and that's it...

Well... the players are very good and the singer has enough voice to make it listenable... maybe there's nothing wrong here... but as a prog fan, I spect to be surprise or maybe that the song could have a twist here or there... and this album is quite streight to the point... so I can hear this album, I've hear it many times and as I have a good time listening to it, I feel like it doesn't leave too much after the album ends...

This album is good for a regular mainstream metal fan... and is ideal to power metal fans... cause it's too chessy for my taste... but I repeat... I like the album... maybe 4 songs are really good but is not for their progressive moments.. this is mainstream metal... So, if you think you can like that -I know I can, not too much but still enjoy it- give it a try... I'm curious... if the other albums are like that or really offer more to the prog fans... cause I've seen some reviews some dare to call them the "UK Dream Theater"... but that's too much for this guys... at least, this album doesn't reflect that proclaim....!!! no even close, 3 star is fair...!!!
