Some people will tell you one day that you don't have to buy a CD for its artwork. For once, don't listen to them! I have bought 'Far Off Grace' for its good-looking presentation without knowing anything about the band and it's one of my favorite bands since the first time I've listen to this album. Seriously, it was a chance that I bought 'Far Off Grace' because it has made me discover the true face of music. This unique mix between Dream Theater's progressive style and heavy metal riffs you can't forget, that's what is the music played by Vanden Plas!

Another great album from the German prog-metal band; my only complaint is the I don't miss you ballad; I've always disliked it, i always skip it after hearing it once. An awful song for me, and the lyrics don't save the song at all.

Great album, the best out of the first 3 albums. I love this track with its oriental touch:

My favorite Vanden Plas album
I thought the two primary purposes for the internet were cat memes and overreactions.

Pretty good album, much better than "God Thing". Still has a bit of a raw feel to the songs but the music is much more refined than the previous record. While its present in most Vanden Plas albums, there is definitely still a bit of a religious undertone to a lot of tracks. It's definitely not as "in your face" as "God Thing" though. I saw the review here and I am a bit surprised at the tracks mentioned as the highlights were not the ones I considered to be the better tracks. Another interesting point, the Reissue adds in the "Shape Of My Heart" cover which I found to be fantastic!

Highlights: Iodic Rain, Fields Of Hope, Into The Sun
