Staff review by

Having released Israel tour EP "The Sleeping Beauty" in 1994, Johan Edlund decided to scrap the lineup as he wasn't satisfied with the results he got. Only keyboardist Johnny Hagel remained. With session musicians Magnus Sahlgren on lead guitar and Lars Skold on drums, Edlund proceeded to make an outstanding album, one that opened doors to a wider audience and remains a beacon in music history.

Rating: 10 Super great album. I´ll remember this cd from when i was "young". And i still love it. Tiamat is one of my favorite bands.

  First half of 90s was a hard time for metal but it has its own masterpieces. This one is the most beloved by me.>)

Rating: 9 While it sounded a bit boring at first, I was eventually blown away by it. Amazing, truly unique-sounding album.

Rating: 10 Very creative and very unique album. Every song is great, no exception. I guess my favorites are Visionaire, Gaia and Do You Dream Of Me?. This last one has an atmosphere that I like so much.

Rating: 9 Loving "The Ar" Never thought I'd like gothic but so far I've found Wolfheart and this enjoyable today

  I just realized that the song "Pocket Sized Sun" is not "Pocket Sized Gun". I've been reading that wrong for over a year now.

  This album is everything I love about music

Rating: 8 This is my way to this band 8 winters ago or was it more?
Between old and new, still TV, and CD, begging of I net, I saw video ''Gaia''
I was blown away, musically this is doomster type of album, what I like, excellent album, best from Tiamat
Somehow I net killed a meaning to fraise underground, old days we dig up weird bands in weird ways, tape sharing, radio and so on, nowadays spotify and YouTube killed a underghround, nothing cant be weird
