Rating: 10 This album is one of the most moving peices of music I'v ever herd. It makes me so upset and sad that many people will never even hear or care about this amazing band.

People who say that new last dacade inpower metal has been all genaric and crap need to hear this!

This album is the epitome of the magic that ultra-melodic metal is capable of offering. Every song makes me imagine a flight of euphoric glory drenched in crystalline moonlight reflected in a pool ringed in purple fire.

Oh wow.....your desciption makes me wanna just run and get this one RIGHT NOW !!!

Rating: 10 In all the power metal albums to describe the space, this is the best!!!

Rating: 8 A good album for shure! The instruments in the music is what made it great for me, I would say it is pretty much Neo-Classical Metal. The Old House On The Hill's 3 songs that are just intrumental were good, because the only downside I can see with this album is the Vocals - it sounds sort of punk like if you listen the whole album, but it wasnt 'that' bad, just a little.

  What an amazing album. Direction Perfection is an introduction to Dragonland's superiority...

Rating: 9 Very cool album. technical yet beautifally melodic guitars, catchy yet powerful vocals, and EPIC symphonic arrangements.

Pretty much all i could ask for from an album, but the one flaw I find is that its just a bit too poppy. Nonetheless awsome work!

The Old house on the Hill sequence is a pure symphonic metal masterpiece!

  Epic masterpiece i love Beethoven's Nightmare
