Guest review by

So much can be said about Van Canto's second album; it was an album that was their big break in the metal world. Of course, in order to do that, some changes from the first album (which was a nice effort but not nearly as good as Hero) were required. The biggest improvement is the production - their voices are mixed very nicely and sound much more like actual instruments, unlike on the first album, which has pretty much a demo recording quality, so half the stuff got blurry. That allows the clever arrangements to really shine. But that is not the only change.

Rating: 7 Curious... it seams this is the highest voted van canto's album but it's my less favorite of their first three albums.

  Frankly speaking, I don't like their vocal covers

Rating: 6 Too many covers sounding like the original songs IMO, the only difference with "Fear of the Dark".
