Excellent new album. Here are a couple of songs - brilliant vocals, choruses, and in particular awesome guitar solos. These songs are much more accessible than some of their previous stuff.

I've heard this album yesterday and my first impression, this is a very good album, though looks like they're going a bit slower and venturing to a more hard rock / melodic metal territory compared to the earlier releases. The progressive element is there, but obvious heavily reduced and spotted in only 2-3 tracks. Around 2-3 fillers / decent tracks, but the rest is enjoyable.

 

Eager to give this another listen but 8/10 is deserved on the first spin.

Thanks God for that ;-) & it sounds a whole lot better for it too.

 

In fact by FAR the worst song is the rambling 'Revelation To The End'.

 

Elsewhere this is pretty damned good. & the musicianship is awesome as usual!

Very good album , one of my favorite in 2011

 

Agree friend, i also think it's pretty good too :drink:

 

Wow does anyone else think tho that this trails off badly on the second half.

 

I mean the first 4-5 songs are all great, but then all sense of melody seems to go out of the window, bar maybe one track.

 

Decent album, but some way behind 'Gods Equation' IMO.

on my first impression, i probably think so, but on the third and fourth spins, i found it's pretty good and balance.

two ballads there, 'Live Your Life Like A Dream' and 'When Angels Unite' are awesome, and the rest are good except 'Follow Your Way' is probably weak, and the bonus track one is also passable.

 

Probably that two tracks, along with 'Revelation' that you found pretty weak, but that 'Revelation' track did grow on me, I found some Dream Theater's passage influence there and the chorus is great I guess, probably too lengthy for some, and yes I agree it's quite too long, shortening itu to 6 minutes will be much better.

 

I don't rate this one as high as the sky, probably 80% for me is enough to claim this a strong album, might not as good as the earlier album, but band's evolve and i tend to see this one as more commercial approach with less-prog tendency and lean toward more melodic metal.

 

I like it, some people did, some people don't, that's pretty normal to me :D

    • It is definitely flashdance. I can't unhear it now.
    • Everyone I have spoken to from cities are shitting themselves over this Omricon variant. I say to them "don't you want things to go back to normal?". But they really don't. They are loving living in a police state. I have spoken to a number of ex-prisoners as well who have similar thoughts about jail. I think a lot of people are wired to like having freedom and choice taken away from them. They enjoy having fewer options. It is bizarre to me.
    • the first song wasn't the clip I heard - this sound more promising to me https://www.facebook.com/100764135031478/posts/426269785814243/  
    • mmmm. Erik great, verses great, solo typical but still good, chorus suspect.  Am I the only one who hears Flashdance in the chorus 🤔 🤣🤣🤣
    • I am not here to convince any of you the Way. I believe everyone has the means and now makes their choice as per free will. Yet , isn't it amusing (well it is to me) how fundamentalist atheists are in their certainty. And I guess that is why you are so intolerant to other beliefs. There is no room for doubt in your minds. You feel you know all the answers and that there are no mysteries outside of your understanding. Though you are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant and then believing that is the entire knowledge of the elephant. Good luck with that. 
    • Yeah, I mean that's a fair call. This is what people originally were concerned about and it's gradually happened and not many people have really noticed or cared. Tracking everyone everywhere they go. (if you scan in  )
    • I think generally that this new "threat" is being taken with a grain of salt. I'd like to think so anyway. Regardless, by the time we all say ENOUGH, the new powers put in place by ALL Governments and new "digital ID's" and tracking apps will be well established.  Well played, the powers that be, well played. 
    • New video for ”Lost In The Night”.    
    • I had a couple of videos recommended on youtube today so I looked at them. One was an interview with the doctor in South Africa who "discovered" and diagnosed the new variant, and she spent the entire interview saying how mild it was, and that the patients hadn't even actually shown any symptoms with the variant. The other video I watched was a mainstream, panic-endorsed media interview with two "top doctors" who both said that if this variant is as mild as suggested it is actually better to let it spread and become the dominant strain of covid.  The problem is, that around these two things, as soon as the hosts/reporters start talking, they're back in full panic mode, asking if borders should be shut, countries locked and doing their best and hardest to make sure that panic and hysteria is returned as soon as humanly possible.  So I want to know when a law can be passed where people in public positions that spread panic can be shot on the spot. That's my ideal wish, but in the real world of 2021, when are these panic merchants going to be stood down from their positions? It seems like this new variant is absolutely nothing at all that anyone anywhere should be worried about, and if you believe the "top doctors," spreading it should be embraced. So how does this whole panic hysteria storm get whipped up in the space of a few days? And why aren't people being held accountable for whipping up this madness and stopping actual life from ever continuing again?   For anyone interested, the two clips I saw were these-
