New cd by veterans Stratovarius....I haven't been listening to them much the last few years but this cd interests me as my tastes have been leaning toward heavier areas lately...

This one has had some great reviews, but for my taste it's the usual problem with Power Metal. Some great tunes, nice solos, etc, but really awful choruses. The best word I can come up with is twee. Really twee choruses. Yuk.

 

However, I did quite enjoy 'Halcyon Days'; quite dark-sounding and atmospheric. Might have to download me that one. :)

I have this on order but I'm a big fan and have bought all of their studio discs since Chosen Ones.

 

As you're a fan of the band, I think you'll be a happy man. I've read some reviews suggesting it may be their best album.

I liked both of the 'Elements' discs ... but the rest of their stuff is a little too patchy for my liking ... they're one of those bands where I'll pick up the disc if I spot it going (very) cheap, but I wouldn't seek them out ...

    • Cool song. If ADV is strictly hired to play keys, it should be fine. 
    • Ooh, nice!  I'll have to revisit the first album. 
    • Ugh... I hate you so much. You know I hate you, right? ;} I've never seen either iteration. 
    • These are sounding pretty good.

    • Imagine a world where Andrew Wood didn’t die and Mother Love Bone was still creating awesome music!
    • “My Icarian Flight” featuring the one and only ADV 😜  
    • lol, this was my thought process too. What about Confess?! I like both bands, but not at the expense of one of them. 
    • I do have to give him credit for sounding exactly the same as he did in 1989...
