I plan on buying this soon and expect to love it since I loved Allen/Lande, Starbreaker and Codex as well as Primal Fear although he hasn't been in that band long.

I about went by this thread when I saw Last Tribe in the headline since I forget about that band and it seems so long ago he was affiliated with them after the Allen/Lande discs became a big deal.

A strong album, comprised of many powerhouse singers, and to my surprise, Magnus himself delivered such a magnificent vocal, but kudos to the soaring vocal of Tony Harnell on the sensational ballad, 'Stronger', Rickard Bengtsson of Last Tribe on the 'Last Tribe' track, Karlsson vocal on 'Heading Out' - a brilliant song as well, and Mark Boals at 'Our Time Has Come', but basically almost all singers gave their best here and I'm pretty much satisfied with the performances.


The only song that I think is kinda weak is 'Not My Saviour', but the rest are very solid, around 8 - 9, though I didn't have anything that's worth of 9.5 or 10, but maybe the 'Stronger' acoustic track deserve a slight higher score than the original full-band version, I just think it's more heartfelt. Musicianship is a solid 10/10, production is also very nice - should fall around 8.5, and replay value is 8.5, and the reason I can't give more than that is half of this songs are fast-paced power metal tune and I found it's a moody thing. This disc just shot up to my currently rotating top 10 and perhaps will secure a spot there by the end of the year.
