Four minutes of a YouTube trailer, and this CD will be mandatory for any metal collection.

If I remember I wasn't that impressed with Mirror of Souls. I'll have to check this out...

Heard YT trailer, absoulutely nothing special - apart from vocals, maybe. Keyboard symphonies sound like they were made in '94. Gonna pass on this.

Starts nicely but grows to be quite annoying after a few songs.

Sorry but I think this album is already very overrated.

Hmm. The first couple of songs didn't hold my attention enough and soon I was switching to other albums... twice, actually. Unimpressed by the two songs I've heard.

EDIT: Actually, past the first couple of songs, it's pretty good.

Good album, I like their power-prog thing, they generate some new ideas that haven't been done to death.

Although "I Am" is permanently ruined for me unless I can keep myself from thinking "The Table!" after he sings "I am..."

The only wrong thing with this album is that they start of with the best song on the album

My least favorite Theocracy release... Prolly cause it's less riffy. Still great though!
