Staff review by

The Wanderer is a sophomore album that follows a "take notice" debut, 2010's Secrets. I am happy to say that this is a beautiful improvement; the band continued forward and in two years produced something far exceeding their first work.

Rating: 8 This is how Epica should have sounded in their latest release. Very good album

Rating: 6 So forgettable and dull. This band tries the best it can, but nonetheless only provides music with short-term expiration. There is nothing special about the sound, nothing you could call a "Diabulus-in-Musica-element" and that's just too bad considering the competition the gothic/symphonic genre experiences nowadays.

Rating: 8 I love how bright the orchestrations are on this album. The contrast with the metal is awesome! The only track I dislike is Shadow of the Throne. The vocals are pretty cringeworthy on that one.

Rating: 9 Their follow-up album Argia may have been "better" but this is still my favorite. It's aging very nicely; still so enjoyable! Such a solid band.
