Evergrey, one of my favourite Swedish bands is back, two years only after the release of their precedent excellent album, "The Inner Circle". The last album was really nice, full of emotion but (it's not a reproach) a bit soft too in general. It was more melancholic and peaceful than "Recreation Day" but however really enjoyable. But Evergrey is one of these few bands that knows how to change its direction without any problem and that knows how to surprise its fans. The proof is "Monday Morning Apocalypse", a powerful album this time.. as always Evergrey knows how to do great music…

It seems to me that this album is unfairly underrated. It has many great songs with good riffs and catchy melodies. Tom also sings very well with his voice serving as a medium for the deep (and usually dark) emotions that are behind the lyrics. One of my favourite Evergrey albums.

Underrated album. It's more softer, catchy and not as complex as previous three, but it's full of great tunes.
Their downfall started with "Torn"...
